The Delegate

by

Ex Cumbrian G.P. Charlotte Peterson is a vicious serial killer simmering her way through a life sentence in Rampton High Security Hospital. A sycophantic inmate with Mafia family connections had aided her escape to a murderous New York rampage six months earlier, but Charlotte only managed to actually kill one of the remaining enemies on her list. She therefore needs someone on the outside to complete the job – A Delegate.

Recaptured by D.C.I. Harry Longbridge and D.I. Fran Taylor after flying to the U.S., Charlotte pulls the strings of a vulnerable woman with serious historic mental health challenges of her own. The icing on the cake for Charlotte is that the woman concerned is none other than Harry’s wife, Annie. It feels good – very good.

However, despite initially falling into line believing it will help with her own ‘List,’ Annie develops a growing inner confidence and two powerful women begin mentally circling one another. As Annie covertly pushes forwards with her own plans, the Zandini’s increasingly come to the fore in more ways than one - and Charlotte starts to feel distinctly uneasy….

Ali Carter

Surrey born, Ali Carter lives in North Norfolk with her husband, a retired Met. Police Officer who was a great help in assuring legalities in her first thriller, Blood List, were as accurate as possible.

She used to write poetry in the 80s and 90s attracting some publishing and competition successes, but Blood List, released in October 2018, was her first novel, and the sequel Dead Girls Don't Cry followed in February 2020.

Her writing day is usually accompanied by a few of her far too many dogs and cats that seem to find their way into her not exactly gigantic study, but the company is welcomed as writing can be a pretty isolating occupation at times. Lately there's been an overspill into the lounge where she now tends to also write late at night when the house is quiet.

Her passion is definitely murder (and cake!), but she has an equal interest in natural health topics and a fun approach to life!

'Blood List' (shown here), is still available as an E-Book on Amazon and in paperback directly from the author.

'The Delegate,' the third in the series - - is currently in progress and will hopefully be out Autumn/Winter of 2022.
