Ian Patrick: Rubicon and Stoned Love Sunday, Jul 14 2019 

Please welcome guest Ian Patrick, to discuss writing a series. Ian’s the author of the DS Sam Batford thrillers, with the third, Fools Gold due later in 2019. Rubicon and Stoned Love are books 1 and 2 in this series hailed for its authenticity:

For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Ian Patrick and I’m a crime fiction author in Scotland. Whenever I’m talking about writing I always present the caveat that it’s just my experience. Use what you can and discard what’s unimportant. If we all follow the same path and write the same way then the world of story telling would be poorer for it.

I’ve been asked to talk about what it’s like to write a series now that I have two books out and another in August. I never set out to write a series but the initial response to my debut, Rubicon, led to it happening. It’s one thing capturing the attention of a publisher but it’s readers that keep an author and publisher in employment.

One thing to consider from the outset is the age of your protagonist. Will he or she be able to age with your books or does it matter? Lee Child and Ian Rankin have successful leads after many years with the same lead so it really is up to you. With a detective lead be mindful that at some point they will be too old to be in the force. Rankin has survived this with Rebus but it’s worth bearing in mind all the same.

Make sure you enjoy the protagonist and that you want to stay with them book after book. If you tire of them then so will the reader. Keeping ideas and storylines fresh is also a challenge. I carry a notebook and record observations and conversations. Despite twenty-seven years policing experience, times change so you have to keep up to date.
d
I was based in London and my experience of procedures will be different to my colleagues elsewhere in the UK. There are police consultants out there who will help writers. Some charge for a service and others don’t. Twitter is a great place to find ex-cops and consultants. Twitter is a great platform for engaging with readers and was where I connected with Marni.

Above all, enjoy what you’re doing. It’s not an easy industry to be a part of and it will have its good and not so good days. Treat your work with respect and before you send it out on submission get it professionally edited. A good editor will work with you not against you. They will maintain your voice while improving your story. I recommend Emma at

Watch out for Rubicon hitting your TV screens as it’s in development with the BBC for a six part series. Links to my books and more about me can be found at https://www.ianpatrick.co.uk

Fahrenheitpress.com also offer a free ebook of the same title with every paperback bought direct from them.

Many thanks to Marni for being a great host.

I was educated in Nottingham, leaving school at sixteen. I spent three years in the Civil Service paying out giro cheques. I enjoyed public service but wanted something more. My career choice happened while standing on a picket line and seeing the way the police operated. Calmly and professionally doing their job of maintaining order while letting us peacefully protest against government cuts. I was sold and applied to join the Metropolitan Police. I spent twenty-seven years as a police officer, the majority as a detective within the Specialist Operations Command. I retired as a Detective Sergeant. I’ve investigated many offences from theft to murder and completed my final seven years within SO10 – Covert Policing.
Ill health forced my retirement. Muscular Dystrophy was the culprit and a very rare form at that. I’m still young and needed an outlet that would lead to an income.
A career in policing is a career in writing. I’ve been used to carrying a book and pen and making notes. I found the need to explore a different type of public service and found that writing fiction was something I could do.
Rubicon is my debut novel published by Fahrenheit Press. Stoned Love the second in the series with another, Fools Gold, out later in 2019. The BBC has optioned Rubicon for a six part TV series currently being written.
I now live in rural Scotland where I divide my time between family, writing, reading, and photography.

Lesley Thomson: The Playground Murders Sunday, Jul 7 2019 

Please welcome UK author Lesley Thomson, to talk about the setting of her new Detective’s Daughter mystery, The Playground Murders.

Writing Nail-Biting Mystery Stories in a sleepy English Village

Each year our small, willful poodle Alfred and I visit Winchcombe in the Cotswolds, an idyllic part of the UK with honey colored cottages on winding lanes, the church spire’s cockerel glinting in the sun. Our modest dwelling has a woodstove and walls as thick as a castle (don’t picture a candle-lit hovel, we’ve got the internet and Alexa.) Winchcombe is perfect place to write a murder story!

Winchcombe’s nineteen-fifties pace suits me as my head buzzes with the drama of my detectives. Stella runs a cleaning company. Jack’s a train driver on the London Underground. She’s logical and sees dust, he’s fanciful and sees ghosts. Many of The Detective’s Daughter novels are set in London, my home town. Like me, Stella’s a city girl, fazed by cows, mud and pitch darkness at night.

There’s an eighteenth-century house in Winchcombe that’s pure Jane Austen with stone steps to the front door. In The Playground Murders, I put a body in the hall. The Death Chamber refers to a Neolithic burial mound outside Winchcombe. Some ask if it’s wise setting novels on my own doorstep. (Actually. one character dies in our sitting room.) ‘No problem’, I have replied,

Until… Alfred and I were splashed over The Gloucestershire Echo. The crime-writer and her dog. Now we’re recognized in shops. I discuss Stella and Jack with the lovely woman who froths my latte. No more flinging myself together with scant care, I linger over my wardrobe and apply make-up before buying a newspaper.

If you’re jittery as you turn the pages of The Playground Murders, doors and windows locked, imagine the tranquil village in which I write. And Alfred snoozing on the mat, paws in the air.

Lesley first novel A Kind of Vanishing won The People’s Book Prize. The Detective’s Daughter was Amazon UK’s longest running No. one in 2013, knocking JK Rowling (Robert Galbraith) down to No. two. Lesley’s protagonist Stella Darnell is ‘one of the most original characters in British Crime Fiction’ Sunday Times. The Detective’s Daughter series has sold over 750K copies. The Playground Murders, latest in the series, came out in 2019(‘As compelling as its predecessors … A white-knuckle read: The Tablet). Lesley is writing a standalone, Death of a Mermaid. She lives with her partner and small poodle called Alfred in Lewes, a little town in Sussex that boasts a castle and a forbidding Victorian Prison.

Kaitlyn Dunnett: Clause and Effect Tuesday, Jun 25 2019 

Please welcome Kaitlyn Dunnett, to talk about her new release, Clause and Effect.

Suspect Everyone
by
Kaitlyn Dunnett

Amateur detectives need an active imagination to put clues together, but that also means they come up with some pretty wild scenarios on the way to figuring out what really happened. In the second “Deadly Edits” mystery, Clause & Effect, retired schoolteacher turned freelance editor Mikki Lincoln is present at the Lenape Hollow Historical Society when a wall comes down during renovations to reveal a mummified murder victim hidden in an old chimney.

What seemed like a simple task—update the script for the historical pageant presented at the town’s bicentennial so it can be reused twenty-five years later—is suddenly much more complicated, especially after the victim is identified as Grace Yarrow, the author of that script. Mikki has taken over where Grace left off with the pageant, but is she also following in her footsteps when it comes to threatening someone’s secrets?

Although she never intended to get involved in solving another murder, Mikki can’t help but speculate about the people she’s met since starting work on the project. Some of them were around a quarter of a century ago and knew the victim, perhaps better than they’re letting on. Before long, Mikki has a full roster of suspects.

Is the killer Roberta “Sunny” Feldman, last owner of the world-famous Feldman’s Catskill Resort Hotel? She sold out years ago, just before the heyday of the Borsht Belt came to an end. She may be in her eighties now, but she’s still a force to be reckoned with. Twenty-five years ago, jealousy might have led her to kill Grace Yarrow.

Jealousy could also have motivated Veronica “Ronnie” North, the classmate who tried her best to make Mikki miserable in high school. She hasn’t mellowed much in the fifty-plus years since they graduated, and she’s been married and widowed three times in the interim. Did Grace try to steal husband number two?

Then there’s Gilbert Baxter, current director of the historical society. He knew Grace back in the day, perhaps better than anyone suspected at the time. Mikki finds a clue in the bicentennial pageant that suggests Grace was willing to fudge on the town’s history to give his family a more prominent role.

And what about Judy, the older sister of Mikki’s best friend Darlene? She knew Grace, too, and the evidence suggests there was a lot of hanky-panky going on at the historical society back in the day. Judy’s not been completely honest about what she remembers, but is she guilty of murder?

With all those suspects to choose from, you’d think Mikki could stop adding names to her list, but the question of whether or not Grace Yarrow might have had a child has her adding one more. She can’t help but wonder about the coincidence of her own distant cousin, Luke Darbee, showing up in town when he does. She knows nothing about him but what he’s told her . . . and that they share that unfortunate physical characteristic, the Greenleigh nose. He’s obviously too young to have killed Grace, but when a second murder occurs, she has to consider the possibility that he might have come to Lenape Hollow looking to avenge Grace’s death.

Past and present collide as Mikki gathers more clues. By the time she figures out whodunnit, she’s attracted the attention of the killer and is in danger of becoming the next victim. Is the murderer one of those people she’s been suspicious of all along . . . or someone else entirely?

The good news is that you don’t have to wait to find out. Clause & Effect is available in hardcover and e-book today.

With the June 2019 publication of Clause & Effect, Kathy Lynn Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett will have had sixty books traditionally published. She won the Agatha Award and was an Anthony and Macavity finalist for best mystery nonfiction of 2008 for How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries, and was an Agatha Award finalist in 2015 in the best mystery short story category. She was the Malice Domestic Guest of Honor in 2014. Currently she writes the contemporary Liss MacCrimmon Mysteries and the “Deadly Edits” series as Kaitlyn. As Kathy, her most recent book is a collection of short stories, Different Times, Different Crimes. Her websites are http://www.KaitlynDunnett.com and http://www.KathyLynnEmerson.com and she maintains a website about women who lived in England between 1485 and 1603 at A Who’s Who of Tudor Women.

Ashley Dyer: The Cutting Room Wednesday, Jun 19 2019 

Ashley Dyer’s debut last year was the wonderful Splinter in the Blood, which had one of the most intriguing openings Auntie M had read in a long time. The writing duo of Margaret Murphy and Helen Pepper return with a second one featuring the detective team of Ruth Lake and Greg Carver in The Cutting Room, every bit as good as the first.

A psychopath has hit on a new way to attract gawkers to his crime scenes: digital invites to the gruesome tableaus he’s set up that he considers art installations.

The plot shows the public’s fascination with reality television and true-crime, as the narcissist behind these disturbing murders uses social media to advertise himself and court popularity.

Soon he’s earned the nickname The Ferryman, and both Lake and Carver are determined to bring his spree to an end. Carver is still recovering from the effects of the head wound that nearly killed him in the first book, with unusual side effects that play into the plot. Lake is hiding her own secrets from her friend and co-worker.

Readers who enjoy shows such as Criminal Minds will enjoy the look into this engrossing procedural, filled with suspense and not for the squeamish, but yet totally believeable as the detectives realize to find this demented killer, they must get inside his mind to anticipate his actions.

Highly recommended.

John DeDakis: FAKE Monday, Jun 10 2019 

FAKE is John DeDakis’s newest entry in his Lark Chadwick thriller series with a look inside the Beltway that will seem all too believeable.

Auntie M liked Lark as a character, and readers will, too: feisty and smart, she’s nevertheless aware of her own shortcomings and foibles, and still in the midst of deciding what she wants to be when she grows up.

Reeling from a series of losses that would decimate a lesser woman, Lark is currently working as a White House correspondent when First Lady Rose Gannon agrees to a set of interviews that will form the basis for a biography Lark plans to write.

Rose has already told Lark off the record of her pancreatic cancer, with Lark agreeing to hold that news for now. Then during one of her interviews, Rose collapses and dies suddennly, leaving the new President and his two young children dealing with their grief just as a serious international issue springs to light and he must try to avert a nuclear war.

Soon Lark has an interview with a fascinating job offer dangled in front of her with another network owned by a woman she’s considered an idol. When that idol turns out to have clay feet, the aftermath will affect Lark in ways she could never imagine, with tendrils affecting everyone she cares for. Suddenly Lark finds herself on the wrong side of a thirsty media frenzy.

Who’s behind it all and the lengths will they go to to secure the prize they want form the mystery part of this gripping ride.

This is a clear-eyed look at the supposed line journalists walk every day, juggling their personal feelings with fast-breaking news while trying to figure out the truth from the fake news we all hear about these days. Fast-pacing means the reader is in for one quick ride, with surprising results.

DeDakis has a good handle on writing emotions, too, which allows the reader to connect with all of the main characters here. Calling on his own experience as a former White House correspondant and Senior Copy Editor for CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” DeDakis brings a view of reality mixed with tidbits of behind-the-scenes information to the reader that make this mystery a standout.

Peter Hanington: A Single Source Tuesday, Jun 4 2019 


BBC reporter Peter Hanington’s second topical thriller, A Single Source, features veteran BBC reporter William Carver, bringing the type of verisimulitude to the story only someone who’s lived it can affect.

This realistic light fills the timely story, as Carver, who’s seen it all, teases out the angle others miss when reporting from the Middle East on the cusp of the Arab Spring.

With Patrick at this side, a young BBC producer determined to win Carver’s approval, the duo ferret out stories of ordinary people in a time of crisis. There’s a fresh look at how the decisions of a removed government affect everyday citizens, while a second storyline overlaps and illuminated the tortuous journey of two brother making their way from Eritrea to Europe.

Having Carver see evidence various government’s would rather he not report grounds the story in today’s world as Carver fights to tell his story, as he looks behind the obvious and isn’t always happy with what he finds.

Well-plotted, with snappy dialogue and at times a dry wit, Carver can carry this atmospheric story with authenticity and with a shift in the various things happening that will defy readers to put the book down.

Ragnar Jonasson: The Island Saturday, Jun 1 2019 

Jonasson’s second Icelandic series with its compelling protagonist, Detective Inspector Hulda Hermansdottir, returns with its second installment in The Island.

The time period is set earlier than in last year’s The Darkness and its startling ending. It’s 1987 when the book opens with the details of a new young couple’s romantic but secret trip to the isolation of the Westfjords, a trip that ends in disaster when the young woman is found dead.

A decade later, four friends have a reunion to honor their dead friend, reconnecting with a trip to an old hunting lodge in an even more isolated area of southern Iceland. Cut off from the outside world for the weekend, only three will survive.

Hulda is determined to find the culprit, which means she must explore the history behind the initial investigation into the young woman’s death. She needs to explore the relationships between all of the principal’s involved, some of which had drastic and tragic results, as well as the way in which the investigation itself was handled by her police colleagues.

What she finds will reveal long held secrets that have ramifications for several families as well as Hulda herself.

With the dark, foreboding setting an adjunct character, Jonasson makes the most of Hulda’s tragic life and frustrations as she finds herself looking into the deepest recesses of the darkness that lurks within us. Masterful look into the human psyche.

JR Ripley: Cardinal Sin Tuesday, May 28 2019 

Please welcome author JR Ripley, to tell readers about his new release, CARDINAL SIN, just published May 14th~

Hi, I’m JR Ripley, author of the A Bird Lover’s Mystery series. Book #9, CARDINAL SIN, is out!

CARDINAL SIN has got a rare yellow cardinal, a voodoo doll deity who refuses to go away, and a dead body or two. None of which belong to birds, by the way. We kill people here, not birds. Although, as I always like to say: “Plenty of people get killed but nobody really gets hurt!”

You DO NOT have to know a thing about birds or even be a bird lover to enjoy these books. That’s Amy Simm’s job. Amy is the owner of Birds & Bees, a store for bird watching enthusiasts in the small, fictional town of Ruby Lake, in western North Carolina.

And now a blurb from our sponsor, er, publisher, whose publicist/marketing whiz has this to say:

Birds & Bees owner Amy Simms will need help from her fine-feathered friends when an uncommon bird sighting plunges her into a hornet’s nest of black magic and murder most foul…

Amy’s enjoying a rare moment of relaxation when a customer shows up seeking her expertise in ID-ing an unusual bird she’s seen flying around her wooded cabin at the edge of town. Ruby Lake, North Carolina, newcomer Yvonne Rice resembles an exotic bird herself——apparently the kind that doesn’t fly. When she’s found shot to death in her locked cabin, the only witness is a statue of a voodoo deity staring down from the mantel.

Does the rare yellow cardinal Yvonne spotted hold any clues to her demise? What about the Ouija board spelling out the words “I am murdered?” As Amy delves deeper into Yvonne’s life and meets her strangely secretive neighbors, she’s determined to stop a fowl-hearted murderer from migrating to a new killing ground . . .

DIE, DIE BIRDIE, book #1 of A Bird Lover’s Mystery series was issued in mass-market in August 2018. Book #2 in the series, TOWHEE GET YOUR GUN, released March 26th of this year and book #3 releases on August 27th.

Confused? Don’t feel bad. I get that way sometimes too!

That is because my publisher, Kensington (whom I love at least as much as I love chocolate cake), releases the epub editions ahead of the print editions. This does lead to some occasional confusion by readers and a great deal of confusion on the part of yours truly because I sometimes forget, in making public appearances, just what it is I am supposed to be promoting.

I blame my parents. It is their fault I went to a traditional university rather than Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College where I might have learned something useful, like juggling. Instead, I write books. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. If not, one of us is going to be in trouble – and we know who that is…

Bio: JR Ripley is a novelist and musician, currently writing the Bird Lover’s Mystery series, the Maggie Miller mysteries, and the TV Pet Chef mysteries (writing as Marie Celine). Unfit for the real world, prior to writing full-time, JR slaved away at a multitude of jobs including: archaeologist, cook, factory worker, copy & technical writer, editor, musician, entrepreneur, window washer and more – all grist for the writer’s mill. You can connect with JR at Facebook.com/JRRipley & Twitter @JRRipleyAuthor.

Three for Me: Susan Hill; Aline Templeton; Sophie Hannah Sunday, May 26 2019 

Despite receiving multiple books for review, Auntie M often buys books she wants to read and these three were from her spring crop, presented her for your Memorial Day reading pleasure. All three rate high marks are from some of Auntie M’s favorite authors, so if you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting their acquaintance, dive in now! Highly recommended!!


After an absence that seemed far too long, Susan Hill brings us a new Chief Superintendant Simon Serrailer mystery with The Comforts of Home.

After the horrendous ending to The Soul of Discretion, one could have wondered if we would see Serrailler again, but here he is, adjusting to a new life after his near-fatal injuries, which provides a shocker of an opening. Without melodrama, Serarrailler must learn to cope with his new situation, an enormous adjustment.

His recuperation on a small Scottish island is cut into when the local police ask him to become invovled in a murder inquiry. Despite being relatively new to the island, the popular victim is mourned after being found in unusual circumstances and the death creates a wave of fear that sweeps through the isolated community.

A second case, a cold case assigned by Serrailler’s new brother-in-law, brings its own thorny situation. Now married to his doctor sister, Cat, Kieron Bright relies on Serrailler’s insights, even as Cat struggles with her new marriage and an important professional decision. Her children’s futures are an additional strain on Serrailler, as is his understandably thorny relationship with his father.

This is not a fast-paced thriller, but a superb meditation on loss, family, change, and home, wrapped up in two mysteries that must be untangled. Serrailler heals his mind as well as his body with walks, meditating on his future, his new abilities, and of course, solving the cases.

Aline Templeton’s new detective, after the wonderful DI Fleming series, is DCI Kelson Strang of the Serious Rural Crime Squad in Scotland. His second outing in Carrion Comfort cements this character as strong enough to carry his weight even as he feels his way in this new position.

The small village of Forsich retains many of the old habits, which come with old lingering hatreds, too, and none is stronger than that of Gabrielle Ross, blamed for her father’s destruction of the village.

But whether the woman is benign or evil is something Strang must decide when the body of a drowning victim is found being eaten ravens in aruined croft house. Who bothered to put the body there?

Gabrielle is recovering after losing a baby with her devoted husband, but is she also losing her mind? With her sanity at question, and the villager’s loathing for her, Gabrielle is in tenuous position with fingers pointing at her as the culprit after the blowback from her dead father’s failed local business venture.

Templeton weaves in the social conflicts of modern Britain, from law enforcement budget cuts to the impact of vulture capitalism on small towns. Her descriptions of the local landscapes and the natural environment bring it to life as another character that has its own part to play in the life cycle of this rural area.

Different from the Fleming mysteries, these are edgier characters and there is a darker tone. Strang is still settling into his job, although he’s provided with a female DC who needs his tutoring and should become a series regular. The locals take center stage, with flawed characters whose grudges propel the narrative even as they blind themselves to reality.

Sophie Hannah’s Hercule Poirot is magnificently resurrected under Hannah’s skillful writing in The Mystery of Three Quarters, which starts off with Poirot immediately put on the wrong foot after arrving home from a luncheon to find a woman angrily demanding to know why he sent her a letter accusing her of murder.

Of course, Poirot has done no such thing, and the man the letter accuses Sylvia Rule of killing, one Barnabas Pandy, is someone neither Sylvia nor Poirot have ever met. As if that’s not enought to shake his equanimity, he finds another visitor waiting, claiming to have a received a similar letter from Poirot, accusing him of murdering Pandy.

It’s a lively premise and one Poirot, completely innocent, yet annoyed at being dragged into this farce, must get to the bottom of as eventually there will be four letters, seemingly from Poirot, and yes, Pandy is indeed dead, but not under suspicious circumstances.

Poirot’s “Hastings” in this series is Scotland Yard’s Edward Catchpool, whom Poirot enlists to look into each of the four people who’ve received forged letter, as well as Pandy and his seemingly innocuous death. Several secondary characters contrast nicely to Poirot; the three quarters of the title refers to a ‘church window’ cake that plays an important part in helping solve the case.

This is an elegant mystery, one that takes its due from Christie’s knack for inspecting the English way of doing things as well as keen insights into human nature. While allowing Hannah her own way of telling us these new Poirot cases, nothing of Christie’s original character is lost and, indeed, rests well in Hannah’s most capable hands. A sheer delight.

Roz Watkins: The Devil’s Dice & Dead Man’s Daughter Wednesday, May 22 2019 

It’s Roz Watkins Day, and if you’re not familiar with that name, keep an eye out for this strong new series that mixes a police procedural with the best of psychological suspense.

Roz Watkins burst onto the crime fiction scene introducing DI Meg Dalton, in the atmospheric The Devil’s Dice. The Peak District setting evokes Stephen Booth’s Fry and Cooper series, but with its own spin readers will enjoy.

A strong protagonist is required to carry a series, and Meg Dalton does the job here, despite having her own baggage to carry, when a local patent lawyer, Peter Hamilton, is found dead inside a cave known as a suicide point, part of a network of caves known as The Labyrinth for their complexity.

A local legend of The Labyrinth revolves around ancient witch sagas, with the the lore that a large chamber holds a noose. If your initials are found carved into the cave wall, the noose is there for you. Spooky and creepy but the stuff that makes legends like this endure.

So it’s even creepier when a carving of the grim reaper is found by Hamilton’s body, along with an inscription that says ‘Coming for PHH.’ DI Meg Dalton isn’t a stranger to suicide, but she’s hoped to leave her past in the past.

When Meg interviews Hamilton’s his wife and sister,the wife fears the local rumours about a curse attached to her home have come true. Hamilton’s business partners are soon added to Meg’s suspect list with good reason.

The plot is nicely contorted, with the setting taking on its own part to play. Meg’s family have a unique contribution to the story, and her colleagues are a mixed bunch of different characters who leap off the page in their individualism, including a lapsed Sikh and a misogynistic DC who enjoys putting Meg down.

This is a strong start to the series and since we’re having a bit of a Roz Watkins day, we’ll go on this sequel, Dead Man’s Daughter.

Starting off with a strong opening, Meg finds a ten-year old girl running barefoot through woods in a blood-stained nightdress toward a spot called Dead Girl’s Drop by the locals.

When she rescues Abbie Thornton and inspects her home, the girl’s father has been stabbed to death in his bed. There’s a history of death in the family before, and medical transplant issues that have bearing on this family, but right now Meg is convinced she can’t take on this big case, with a family committment due next week that runs like a thread throughout the book and may have consequences for Meg’s professional life.

But reluctantly, and with great misgivings, when Abbie is considered to have killed her father, Meg does become involved as she digs deeply into the history and the suspects surrounding this case to clear Abbie’s name.

This leads to dark and often surprising places for Meg as she pushes the investigation forward where others on her team would settle for the easy path out. Using vivid descriptions adds to the feeling readers are there with Meg on her investigation, and Watkins knows how to ratchet up the tension with a complex plot that twists at just the right moment.

The difficult themes of organ donation and of assisted suicide are explored with sensitivity by Watkins. Meg must deal with office politics, too, and her own quirks as she tries to heal her past. These issues add a layer and thoughtfulness to the series, and tied with the exhaustive research Watkins must have done, pays off beautifully.

In Meg Dalton, Watkins has a created a spontaneous detective who relies on her hunches at times but never loses her heart. Highly recommended series.
