Thrilled to see this great review for Quieter Than Killing in the Irish Independent at the weekend. Especially pleased that Marnie Rome gets mentioned alongside Jane Casey's Maeve Kerrigan, one of my favourite fictional detectives.
On 26 February, the CLIC Sargent Get in Character auction opens online and you have the chance to be a named character in Marnie Rome book 5. You might end up as a killer, a cop, a prison inmate or even a pal of Noah's. Last year, Jacob Collins was the winning bidder and he appears in Quieter Than Killing, with a special mention in the Acknowledgements. The best bit? You'll be raising money for a really great cause.
CLIC Sargent works with children and young people whose lives are affected by cancer, providing emotional, financial and practical support to help them cope and get the most of out of life. Do join the auction, bid as high as you can, help a good cause and put yourself in my hands as I finish writing Marnie Rome book 5. And, if you don't fancy rubbing shoulders (alive or dead) with Marnie and Noah, there are lots of other authors lined up to take part. Thanks, everyone.
Someone Else's Skin won the 2015 Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year, and was a Silver Falchion and Macavity Award finalist in the US. No Other Darkness was a Barry Award finalist. Tastes Like Fear is out now, and Quieter Than Killing is out now. Thanks for reading. Do get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
