I loved this book. Loved it! All characters are well drawn and totally convincing, the setting is great, the plot had me guessing right to the end ... and it features Marvin who has to be the best fictional cat ever. What more do you need?

Shirley Wells Thanks so much for that, Stuart. Libraries in the UK are, um, struggling a bit too.
I'll be giving away a copy of Presumed Dead on my blog - details will appear Monday or Tuesday - if you're interested...
All the best,
Shirley


Stuart Thank you Shirley. Our library is well...pretty hopeless. I checked amazon.com for 'Into The Shadows', and it is currently out of stock. I will definitely buy a copy once it is available again.

I will download an ebook later this month of 'Presumed Dead'.

Thanks again, Stuart :)


Shirley Wells Goodness, you're the 3rd person to ask me that today. Um, I write a mystery series featuring a female forensic psychologist and a male DCI. The first in that series is INTO THE SHADOWS. I've just started a new series featuring a male PI (all set in Lancashire, UK) which will be out in e-format on 26th of this month, PRESUMED DEAD.
If you'd really like to try one, I'd suggest looking in your library for INTO THE SHADOWS.
Thanks!
Shirley :)


Stuart Hi Shirley,

Wow! You have many titles to choose from, I am spoilt for choice. Which would you recommend I read first?

Looking forward to your reply.

Stuart :)


Shirley Wells Hi Stuart.

Thanks for the friendship.

The next time I'm reading non-fiction, I may have to try Beyond my Control. It sounds interesting - and frightening!

All the best to you too from a dull, grey, wet UK. (And it's supposed to be summer...:))

Shirley


Stuart Hi Shirley,

Delighted to be friends on GoodReads.

All the best from not so sunny, Australia :)

Stuart
