Published today, my third novel A Walk on the Wilder side. Many readers may remember that it was serialised on my website over around six months but now, for those people who prefer not having to wait for chapters to be published, it is now available in paperback on Amazon. It is also available as an eBook.
The story briefly: It is 1970 and Keith Wilder is news editor for a press agency in Northwest Britain. It is a dark night in January when he receives a mysterious phone call asking him to go to a lonely, remote farm. He discovers the gruesome body of a man whose brains have been blown out by a shotgun.
The killing is the beginning of a series of events in which both Wilder and the police receive taunting, sneering notes predicting further murders. Shortly after, a notorious drug dealer is found dead on Liverpool’s Lime Street.
Meanwhile, Wilder’s teacher girlfriend, Amy Sunderland, is bent on unravelling the enigma of Keith’s father who vanished when he was born. Who was he? And has he re-appeared with a new identity? And if so why?
