I’ve got some good news to share – my second novel will be published in May 2015.

“Cold Roses”, like my debut release “Calling Cards” will be coming to you from the good folks at Glasgow’s Ringwood Publishing.

So what’s it all about, you ask? Well …

DI Adam Ralston is no stranger to the dark side of human nature, but when a young art gallery worker is discovered in her South Side flat, brutally raped, her throat slit, and a single red rose laid upon her corpse, he is thrown into a bloody maelstrom of violence and suspicion unlike anything he has known before.

“Haunted by the death of a prison officer on a previous case, (see Calling Cards) Ralston must also battle his own personal demons and hold his family together as tries to track down the killer – a killer who leaves no clues, who grows bolder with each killing, and who seems to be able to strike at will.

“Time is running out. And the body count is rising.”

As you’ve probably guessed by now, it’s not a romance. Following on from my first novel, it’s another Glasgow based psychological thriller, complete with several gruesome murders and many new characters, but with the same team of detectives trying to solve the case.

There will be a launch event once more – and it would be great to see as many folk as possible coming along. The exact date and venue will be sorted out soon, and I’m sure it will be another excellent night.

The book will be available for purchase, signed of course, at the launch. It will also be sold in hard copy and electronic formats through Amazon, Waterstones and hopefully several other book shops.

Or you can order your signed first edition through the Ringwood Publishing website at this link:


I’m really grateful to everyone who purchased Calling Cards and gave it such favourable reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, as well as for all the e-mails and messages I received.

I hope you will all find Cold Roses to be as entertaining.
