Friday, 29 November 2019, sees the release of my new crime novel, Never Go Back (published by the good, good people at Close to the Bone), and already it’s had some pre-release reviews – and they’re good. Except one, but I can take that. Here’s the thrust:

Barlow Vine just killed a man – his lover’s lover. Now he’s heading from Spain back to his hometown in the vain hope his actions won’t catch up with him.
In his way are nurses, strange kids in Edwardian garb, one blinding headache, and dead-eyed killers who want to use him for their own ends. It’s a cold, murderous homecoming – and he’ll need the luck of every bastard to survive.

I’ve done a few interviews and guest blog posts over the past few months, including with top man David Nemeth and the brutal Jesse “Heels” Rawlins. She’s a tough one. Here they are if you fancy some fun reads:
