Extended Extract from The Mermaid's Pool by David Nolan

PROLOGUE 9.30 pm Thursday 31 March 1988 When they came for her, she fought. Hard. She kicked, scratched, screamed and spat at the men, grabbing at their balaclava masks… trying to find a way out. But there were five of them. And there was no way out. She shouted too, of course. And tried to scream. But the hand that covered her mouth and the forearm that cradled her neck were both strong and practised. The leader - she instinctively knew he was in charge - put his covered face next to hers. He put a finger up against the...

Nick Quantrill introduces the 4th Geraghty book - Sound Of The Sinners

King Of The Crows - The 1st Review

King of the Crows. Reviewed by Brian Callar of The Barking Book Blog. So.......what can you expect from King of the Crows? Well, I and a select few other bloggers have been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to read it so without further ado may I present.........  I don’t even know how to start reviewing Russell Day’s King of the Crows to be honest, and even this review took several drafts, believe it or not! I think it is fair to say that it is probably one of the most unique books I have read in terms of...
