Killing Time

by

When pensioner William Reynolds is found brutally murdered, the investigation digs into a gang whose criminal past appears to be catching up with them.

Sentences have been served but not all wounds have healed.

With a group of suspects eager to keep their secrets buried, nobody is safe, all of them are hiding something, and one way or another everybody is running out of time.

Killing Time was published with Matador in December 2020.

My second novel; Last Man Standing is ongoing and now has a name! I'm 20 chapters with another 20 drafted. The premise relates to a thirty year old miscarriage of justice which happened during the Troubles of 1990's Northern Ireland, with links to present day Leicester.

Such a page turner, I was hooked! A really great read and I would highly recommend it. 5 stars!

FANTASTIC!! Such a good read, the author had me on the edge of my seat right up until the end. A really well-written book that I'd highly recommend anyone reading.

A smart, fast moving, dark crime thriller - just my cup of tea! I couldn't put the book down, a real page turner. I just had to know 'who dunnit'? I didn't question the story, I just read it and believed it. The story kept me gripped until the very end. It's a massive thumbs up from me and I cannot wait to devour the author's 2nd promised novel.

Fantastic read very gripping and hard to put down. It kept me on the edge of my seat from page 1. Would recommend to anyone who loves a thriller. Can’t wait for book number two.

Killing Time is quite the page turner. Kept me riveted throughout. It's a great read, I loved it. It's also a nicely printed book! Being from leicestershire I particularly loved the detailed descriptions of the locations too. This author is one to watch!
