I’ve just finished editing the brilliant tenth novel in the DI Miller series, which is now available.

What should have been a routine murder investigation, turns into a deadly nightmare…

DI Frank Miller and some of his team are called in by the CID from the Borders when the body of a woman is found crucified in a graveyard.

A troupe of actors arrive in the town to put on a play, celebrating the Centennial of the birth of famous poet and playwright, Hugh Abernethy.

Abernethy was also an agent with the SOE, until he went missing 

during the second World War.

Now, the plane Abernethy was traveling in has been found after a glacier in Iceland gave up its hold on the five-man crew.

The discovery raises more questions than answers; Where was the plane heading? Why was it so far off course? And where are the top-secret documents he had in his possession at the time?

As the festivities clash with the murder investigation, one of the deadliest snow storms to ever hit the UK envelops the small town, trapping everybody inside with a killer.
Cut off from the rest of civilisation, Miller and his team know they must track down a vicious murderer, who seems to know the real reason why Abernethy was on that plane, and will stop anybody else from finding out.

For some, the drama is real and the stage is set for murder…

Editing completed, The Stone Girl, second in the new Harder They Fall series is now available.  Another page turner by Solomon Carter.

Dan and Eva take an unlikely looking case  – and end up always one step behind the truth.

Is their old friend pulling a fast one?

Probably. And what about the young woman with the mysterious pendant around her neck?

Some gems are too precious to be ignored.

And some are too deadly to touch.

When the Private Investigators discover the true value of the grey stone, all becomes clear. It means big trouble all round.

But what can they do about it? Whichever route they choose spells trouble.

Meanwhile, another of Dan’s old boxing friends is in dire trouble. And another refused to see the truth. His arrogance could be his undoing… Unless the man called Cato kills him first…

Cads, cut throats, psychopaths, liars and mysterious femme fatales… In The Stone Girl, Eva and Dan must overcome them all.

And even if they do, the nightmare won’t end there…

In a truly thrilling conclusion, villains of all stripes plot the downfall of their foes. To the victor the spoils. But the losers might face their death.
