This week’s new addition to the shelf, here at Fiction Books, features not only another new to me author in one of my favourite genres, but an excellent sounding new character for me to get to know and the icing on the cake is that ‘Tell Tale’ is book number seven on my ‘Goodreads Giveaway’ competition wins list!
The fact that the reviews and ratings tally of over 40, is averaging well over the 4 star mark, is even better news and I can’t wait to get started on this book for myself.
Five years ago, someone murdered DI Charlotte Savage’s daughter and got away with it. Now the secret’s out.
But before Charlotte can get her revenge, disturbing events start to unfold on Dartmoor …
A woman’s naked body is found near an isolated reservoir on the bleak winter moors. When the woman’s housemate also goes missing, Charlotte knows she must move fast.
But in a police force tainted by corruption, Charlotte’s hunt for the killer won’t be easy.
And resisting her own urge to kill will be even harder …
… Was born in Epsom, Surrey, UK, living and spending his school years in nearby Guildford. Late teenage years were spent on a smallholding in Shropshire in the middle of nowhere. A visit to the cinema involved a forty mile round trip and nights out consisted of “dances” in village halls with the boys on one side of the floor and the girls on the other.
He went to the University of Birmingham and read Cultural Studies, although following a half-completed a Ph.D at Brighton in Sussex, he decided that life as a post graduate wasn’t quite as much fun as being a regular student (too much work and not enough sex, drugs and rock and roll).
Mark has had a number of occupations, being variously, a reluctant farmer, an average drummer and a pretty good programmer. These days, his hi-tech web developer’s suite, otherwise known as a shed in the garden, has been converted to a writer’s den and he writes almost full-time, leaving room for the occasional programming project.
Home now is not far from Plymouth (DI Savage’s patch) in rural Devon, with his wife and family, living close to the sea where it rains so much he sometimes wonders if they don’t live in the sea.
