Hi Miriam,

I appreciate this is a very late answer! I rarely visit Goodreads, though I am going to rectify that, and have only just seen this question. Dead Time was released earlier this year and I am planning a novella for early next year which will take place before Dead Eyed. After that, I am not sure. I have recently signed a 3 book deal with Thomas and Mercer for a crime series set in the West Country and I have a thriller called The Controller coming out next year. However, I am sure I will return to write book 5 of Lambert at some point.

Best wishes,

Matt(less)

Excellent crime read

I loved this great first person narrative crime story. Original take with lots of twists and turns with complex protagonist. Highly recommended.
