Book description for my new Jefferson Tayte mystery thriller.

DYING GAMES - Description

The blurb for the back cover of DYING GAMES has been finalised, and I'm very pleased to be able to share it with you. The book will be out in all formats worldwide on 4 May 2017 and can be pre-ordered from Amazon now. See details below.

Here's what it's about...


Washington, DC: Twin brothers are found drowned in a Perspex box, one gagged and strapped to a chair. It’s the latest in a series of cruel and elaborate murders with two things in common: the killer has left a family history chart at each crime scene, and the victims all have a connection to genealogical sleuth Jefferson Tayte.

Hoping his insight and expertise will help solve the case, the FBI summon Tayte back to the capital. But as he struggles to crack the clues, the killer strikes again—and again. Tayte is known as the best in the business, but this time he’s up against a genealogical mastermind who always seems to be one step ahead.

With the clock ticking and the body count rising, Tayte finds himself racked with guilt, his reputation and career in tatters. The killer is running rings around him; is it only a matter of time before he comes for the ultimate target?


I'm very excited about it! I'll be proofreading DYING GAMES over the Christmas holidays, after which my part in bringing the book to you will be more or less complete. The cover design is almost ready and I can't wait to share that with you, too. I'm really pleased with it. I'm also having a bit of fun with a book trailer video so do watch out for that.

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017.
