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....

US Publication and the reinvention of the Steel City series.

As of January 2018, Head Of Zeus will be releasing my books in the US. To celebrate, the Steel City series has undergone something of a reinvention - updated covers, new blurbs etc. Most importantly, Blood Guilt will now be sold as a standalone - which in truth it always has been. Whilst Angel of Death, Justice for the Damned and Spider's Web will be sold as a trilogy under the new series title of The Missing Ones. Again, this makes sense as the three books tell one big story. Head Of Zeus are also releasing a trilogy box set at a bargain price - currently about half the price of purchasing each book separately. So do yourself a favour and grab all three at once. You won't regret it (I hope).


1993. A trip to the cinema turns into a nightmare for Anna Young and her little sister Jessica, when two men throw thirteen-year-old Jessica into the back of a van and speed away.

1997. Fifteen-year-old Grace Kirby kisses her mum goodbye and heads off to school. It’s a day like any other, except that Grace will never return home.

2012.Melinda (surname and age unknown) has been missing for weeks. The police would normally be all over it, but Melinda is a prostitute. Women in that line of work are the perfect victims. Most are runaways and drug addicts, leading transient existences. She probably just moved on.

Jessica, Grace and Melinda are not the only ones who have gone missing. There are others. Lots of them. On the surface, their disappearances don’t appear to be connected. But one man is convinced otherwise.

When DI Jim Monahan is called to a fatal shooting, he comes to realise the case is only part of a bigger picture – one that he becomes hell-bent on exposing to the world. But a shadowy ring of powerful people will do anything to prevent that from happening. Over the course of three books, Jim’s investigation leads him down a rabbit hole of murder, depravity and corruption that will test his faith in the law to breaking-point.

From the bestselling author of Blood Guilt and The Lost Ones, comes a hard-hitting trilogy that will have you questioning how far you would go to see justice done.
