David Sodergren lives in Scotland with his wife Heather and his best friend, Boris the Pug.

2020 will be Sodergren's biggest year yet, with two new horror novels being published. Dead Girl Blues is a slasher-noir mystery, and it will be followed by a return to full-blown supernatural horror before the end of the year.

Classic Black comedic crime thriller hits the ground running with one outrageous set-piece after another, though it fails to maintain the hectic pace and kinda ends with a dreadful whimper of an interrogation scene. Still, it's often funny and there ...more

“It was enormous, a sprawling gothic mansion in the middle of nowhere that would surely outlive them all.”
