This was actually my first Harlan Coben book…hard to believe, I know. I don’t know why but I had it in my mind he wrote horror. Anyway, Don’t Let Go was a great one to start with and was published in 2017.
Napoleon ‘Nap’ Dumas, a New Jersey Detective, has never quite come to terms with his twin brother’s death, and has carried that baggage with him since Leo and his girlfriend, Diana, were found dead on the railroad tracks back when they were all in high school. Nap’s girlfriend, Maura, disappeared from his life at the same time and for the last fifteen years Nap has been consumed with wanting to know the circumstances behind his brother’s death and the sudden and mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend, Maura.

500 years ago: eight martyrs were burnt to death
30 years ago: two teenagers vanished without trace
Two months ago: the vicar committed suicide
Welcome to Chapel Croft.
Single parent Rev. Jack Brooks and her teenage daughter Flo, moved to Chapel Croft ostensibly for a new start, and for Jack a chance to perhaps find some peace. An ‘unfortunate situation’, as described by the residing bishop in her Nottingham parish, resulted in a move neither Jack or Flo wanted to a much smaller parish in rural Sussex. It was an interim position until a full time replacement could be found. However, no-one had seen fit to mention that the last vicar had committed suicide.
The Reincarnationist Papers, with elements of thriller, mystery, fantasy, crime and historical fiction, is due for publication later this year. It’s also being turned into a movie, releasing this summer by Paramount Pictures under title of “Infinite,” starring Mark Wahlberg and Chiwetel Ejoifor.
About the Book
I’m delighted to be joining the blog tour for Family, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources.
The Glass family, headed by Danny, control the criminal element in South London. Danny’s younger brother, Luke, just released from prison after seven years, was convicted of the manslaughter of the head of the rival Anderson family after Danny’s wife and daughter were killed by a bomb attached to her car.
I’m pleased to share an extract today from Forgotten Lives, a soon to be released (10th January) follow on to Ray Britain’s debut novel, The Last Thread.
A single blow of the door-ram smashed the flimsy wooden door from its hinges and had barely landed before heavy boots trampled across it as helmeted, black-clad firearms officers pounded along the hallway shouting out commands as each room was reached, checked for occupants and contained as other officers raced behind them to reach the next room. Behind them, more officers thundered up bare wooden stair treads to secure the upper floor. Every officer carried a semi-automatic carbine rifle. Briefed for a potential confrontation with a skilled killer, the officers’ adrenalin-fuelled breathing filled the interior of the command vehicle a few hundred yards away where Stirling sat watching, waiting.
