A Gothic thriller for the long, dark nights!

My new novel Don't Look Back is now available exclusive to Amazon. I should warn you that Don't Look Back isn't a Jack Anderson novel (Jack will be back for a third instalment sometime next year). As much as I love writing procedurals, it's important for me to keep things fresh by making occasional forays into different genres (or at least sub-genres). My latest offering could be described as a modern day Gothic mystery. There are many of the suspenseful elements you would associate with my books, but instead of the gritty streets of Manchester, the setting is a dark, brooding Cornish mansion. Have a read of the blurb below and if it sounds like your sort of thing head over to Amazon and get your e-copy of Don't Look Back for the launch offer price of only 99p!

Adam’s eyes swelled in horror at the sight that confronted him. Henry was standing with his back against the front door, pale and rigid, his left hand pressed to his neck. Blood was seeping between his fingers, running down his wrist and dripping from his elbow onto the back of Jacob’s head. Jacob was facedown on the tiled floor, arms outstretched to either side with blood pooling around his wrists. There was a faintly metallic butcher’s shop smell in the air...

After the tragic death of their eleven-year-old son, Adam and Ella are fighting to keep their family from falling apart. Then comes an opportunity that seems too good to be true. They win a competition to live for free in a breathtakingly beautiful mansion on the Cornish Lizard Peninsula. There’s just one catch – the house is supposedly haunted.

Mystery has always swirled around Fenton House. In 1920 the house’s original owner, reclusive industrialist Walter Lewarne, hanged himself from its highest turret. In 1996, the then inhabitants, George Trehearne, his wife Sofia and their young daughter Heloise disappeared without a trace. Neither mystery was ever solved.

Adam is not the type to believe in ghosts. As far as he’s concerned, ghosts are simply memories. Everywhere he looks in their cramped London home he sees his dead son. Despite misgivings, the chance to start afresh is too tempting to pass up. Adam, Ella and their surviving son Henry move into Fenton House. At first, the change of scenery gives them all a new lease of life. But as the house starts to reveal its secrets, they come to suspect that they may not be alone after all…

Jack's Back!

Who Is She?, the second book in the Jack Anderson series is here! If suspense thrillers that grab you by the throat and don't let go until the very last page are your thing, then check out the blurb below and head over to Amazon to pick up your copy!

Her eyes pop open like someone surfacing from a nightmare. Shreds of moonlight glimmer through a woodland canopy. How did she get here? A thousand bells seem to be clanging in her ears. There is a strange, terrible smell. Both sweet and bitter. Like burnt meat. Her senses scream that something is very, very wrong. Then she sees it. A hole in the ground. Deep and rectangular. Like a grave…

After the death of his wife, Jack is starting to get his life back on track. But things are about to get complicated.

A woman lies in a hospital bed, clinging to life after being shot in the head. She claims to remember nothing, not even her own name. Who is she? That is the question Jack must answer. All he has to go on is a mysterious facial tattoo.

Damaged kindred spirits, Jack and the nameless woman quickly form a bond. But he can’t afford to fall for someone who might put his family at risk. People are dying. Their deaths appear to be connected to the woman. What if she isn’t really the victim? What if she’s just as bad as the ‘Unspeakable Monsters’ who put her in hospital?

He watched her... NOW SHE'S DEAD... And her killer is watching him!

Here we go again. Another year, another new novel. 'Now She's Dead' is a psychological suspense thriller full of darkly Hitchcockian twists. If your thing is provocative, baffling stories about the secrets we keep and the lies we tell - with a seriously unhealthy dose of murder thrown into the mix - then this one's for you.

What happens when the watcher becomes the watched?

Jack has it all – a beautiful wife and daughter, a home, a career. Then his wife, Rebecca, plunges to her death from the Sussex coast cliffs. Was it an accident or did she jump? He moves to Manchester with his daughter, Naomi, to start afresh, but things don’t go as planned. He didn’t think life could get any worse...

Jack sees a woman in a window who is the image of Rebecca. Attraction turns into obsession as he returns to the window night after night. But he isn’t the only one watching her...

Jack is about to be drawn into a deadly game. The woman lies dead. The latest victim in a series of savage murders. Someone is going to go down for the crimes. If Jack doesn’t find out who the killer is, that 'someone’ may well be him....

'The Lost Ones' is finally here!

A new novel, a new publisher... At long last it's release day for my psychological thriller 'The Lost Ones'. I hugely enjoyed writing the Steel City Thrillers, but after four years I decided it was time for a change of scenery. The result was 'The Lost Ones', a standalone story of murder, deceit and desire set in beautiful, bleak Northumberland. The novel was picked up by Thomas & Mercer who did an incredible job of fully realising my vision for it. I hope you enjoy plunging into its mystery as much as I did creating it.

Some secrets are better left undiscovered.

When a nine-year-old girl goes missing in Harwood Forest, the search for her brings back memories of an unsolved double murder some forty years earlier. Could the key to Erin Jackson’s disappearance lie in the bloody fate of Elijah and Joanna Ingham, bludgeoned to death while their young daughters slept? Were the Inghams really the victims of opportunistic burglars—or a more sinister fate?

The woods are combed for signs of the child, but Erin’s brother, Jake, mounts his own investigation, uncovering evidence that puts the Inghams’ daughters—vanished Rachel and ‘crazy’ Mary—in the frame. Meanwhile, Erin’s father suspects that the ragtag army of eco-warriors besieging his quarry development may have something to hide.

As devastating secrets and betrayals are revealed, the Jackson family is brought to a breaking point. But time is running out. Erin is still missing and Jake’s unorthodox enquiries have left him dangerously exposed. They must find Erin and lay the past to rest—before they become its latest victims....

Beware the Spider's Web!

A mere four months after the release of Justice For The Damned, it's the turn of Spider's Web to make its way out into the virtual world (the hardback follows on November 5th). Two books in a year! Phew. For all you readers who devour books in a matter of days, I'm afraid to say this is the end result of more than two years' work as opposed to me being a fast writer. So I hope you enjoy what is most definitely a rare treat. The fourth Steel City Thriller picks up the story roughly a year after the events of the third book with Jim Monahan back on the case. This is the final part of a three-book story arc, so please make sure you read Angel Of Death and Justice For the Damned before getting yourself tangled up in Spider's Web.

It is all connected.

February 14th 1993. Sheffield United supporters remember it as the day their team won a famous victory against Manchester United. The date is lodged in Anna Young's brain for a different reason. That was the day her thirteen-year-old sister, Jessica, was abducted...

Fast forward twenty years. The case has long since gone cold. But Anna won't let it die. She made a promise to look after her little sister. And it's a promise she intends to keep no matter how long it takes...

A detective with one thing on his mind. Jim Monahan is equally determined to bring down a sadistic sex-ring. But everywhere he turns he finds himself entangled in a web of political power and silence. Then comes a bizarre twenty-year-old clue that might just blow the whole thing apart......

It's Release Day For The Ebook Of Justice For The Damned!

Another year, another Steel City Thriller hits the shelves - well, the 'virtual' shelves at least. The paperback of Justice For The Damned follows on 7 May 2015. The third book in the series picks up from directly where Angel Of Death left off. So if you haven't read Angel Of Death it would be a good idea to do so before plunging into the world of murder, corruption and perversion occupied by the heroes and villains of Justice For the Damned. And if you have read it and wondered whether the Chief Bastard got his comeuppance, you're about to find out...

Thirty years of fear. Thirty years of closed minds. It is all about to change.

A Sheffield prostitute has disappeared. With no family to fight for her, she's just the latest in a long line of missing girls stretching back three decades. Nobody cares about their names. Nobody remembers their faces. They are the unloved, the damaged, the forgotten, the damned...

Amongst the women working South Yorkshire's streets, rumours of a serial killer have long circulated. But the police's top brass don't want to know about it. Talk of serial killers panics the public and embarrasses the department...

But two very different detectives, each driven by their own dangerous obsessions, are being drawn into a murky world of perversion, murder and corruption that stretches from the streets to the corridors of power....
