One Of Us by Tina Jackson

Fahrenheit author Tina Jackson talks about Crime Fiction and the joy of being Other and how those two things combine in her debut novel The Beloved Children which is published this Friday (4th Dec)     I never thought I’d write a crime novel. It’s not that I’m not fascinated by crime – who isn’t, when it’s what happens when human beings find themselves in extreme circumstances? From The Moonstone on, I have a deep love for books that explore what unfolds when bad things happen to bad people. But I didn’t think I’d got the chops to write a conventional crime...

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

I thought I was finished with Joe Geraghty. I’d written three books with him in the starring role, a self-contained trilogy, which also captured the ridiculous rate of change being experienced in our shared home city of Hull. ‘Broken Dreams’ opens with Joe working in a detective agency with his mentor, Don Ridley, and Don’s daughter, Sarah. Struggling to find a place for himself, it’s something that increasingly gnaws away at him throughout the novel and into ‘The Late Greats’. By the time we reach the end of ‘The Crooked Beat’, Joe is walking off into the distance with his...
