The latest book to hit my virtual shelf this week, comes courtesy of the lovely Clare, Campaigns Assistant, at ‘Head Of Zeus‘ publishers. I am hoping that author Mark Roberts will be visiting with a guest post on June 9th, so mark that date to stop by and chat with him.
‘DAY OF THE DEAD‘
The man who calls himself Vindici broke out of prison last year. Now he’s filmed himself torturing and killing paedophiles in Liverpool’s affluent suburbs. Half the city are celebrating: now the streets are safer for their children. But for DCI Eve Clay and her team at the Merseyside Police, it’s a nightmare. Their job is to solve the crimes and lock up the killer – hard enough without being despised by the public they are trying to protect.
And now, just when they think they’ve cracked the case, they receive a photo of Vindici, at a Day of The Dead parade in Mexico. So if Vindici is 5,000 miles away, who are they hunting in Liverpool? DCI Eve Clay must draw on all her cunning to unmask a killer who is somehow always one step ahead..
He was a teacher for twenty years and for the last thirteen years has worked with children with severe learning difficulties.
Before his first adult crime novel The Sixth Soul was published in 2013, Mark had spent most of his time as a writer producing three children’s novels and theatre plays, receiving a Manchester Evening News Theatre Award for best new play of the year.
He is the author of What She Saw, which was longlisted for a CWA Gold Dagger.
Blood Mist, the first in his DCI Eve Clay series, went to number one in the Australian kindle chart.

It doesn’t matter what the stone cold truth is, what people believe is the thing that really drives the bus. This is what I like to explore in my novels. People, in crisis, good versus evil, levels of distorted and different consciousness, the power of belief to crank up the horrific way that people treat each other.
