What he can't handle is the memory of his mother's death at the hand of his sadistic father. Or the darkness his father implanted deep in his own psyche. Or the nightmares…Now his father is back in town and after blood, ready to waste anyone who stops him hacking out a piece of the action. There are people in his way.And Davie is one of them.Tense, dark and nerve-wracking… a highly effective thriller. THE HERALDThis is crime fiction of the strongest quality.

THE SKINNYSkelton has been hiding from his talent for long enough. High time he shared it with the rest of us.
