A very happy publication day to clients R. C. Bridgestock, who last week saw the release of their most recent DI Jack Dylan book, When A Killer Strikes, published in eBook!*
Hardly what Detective Inspector Jack Dylan needs to hear on his day off, especially in the middle of house-hunting with his wife, Jen. Detective Sergeant Vicky Hardacre greets him at the scene, and what awaits them behind the blood-red door of Colonial House is undoubtedly a murder.
Dylan is quick to identify several prime suspects but before the killer can be caught, another body is discovered, half-rotted and abandoned amongst the discarded food within a waste-bin shelter.

David Wragg's forthcoming The Hunters (the first in his new 'Tales of the Plaines' series), has received a fantastic write-up from Fantasy Hive:
"The Hunters is packed to the brim with madness and mayhem, humour and anarchy, mysticism and alchemy, but most of all it holds characters you will absolutely love, and those you will love to hate."

Also published last week, in both the US and UK, was the debut fantasy novel from Thomas D. Lee, Perilous Times!
An immortal Knight of the Round Table faces his greatest challenge yet--saving the politically polarised, rapidly warming world from itself--in this slyly funny contemporary take on Arthurian legend.
Being reborn as an immortal defender of the realm gets awfully damn tiring over the years - or at least that's what Sir Kay's thinking as he claws his way up from beneath the earth, yet again.
Mariam's devoted her life to fighting what's wrong with her country. But she's just one ordinary person, up against a hopelessly broken system. So when she meets Kay, a figure straight out of legend, she dares to hope that the world's finally found the saviour it needs.
As the two quest through this strange land swarming with gangs, mercenaries, and talking squirrels, they realise that other ancient evils are afoot. Lancelot is back too--at the beck and call of immortal beings with a sinister agenda. And if their plans can't be stopped, a dragon will be the least of the planet's worries.
In perilous times like these, the realm doesn't just need a knight. It needs a true leader.
Luckily, Excalibur lies within reach--and Kay's starting to suspect that the hero fit to carry it is close at hand.
On principal, she should turn it down. But their young family needs the money and Sarah can't help feeling like her career has taken a backseat all these years. Now it is her turn to shine.
Overnight, Sarah and Will trade places.
She's now the departmental director commuting into the city five days a week and answering client calls on the weekend. He's doing the school run and the laundry. Or at least trying to.
They've always said they are equal partners, so this transition should be simple right?
This change was supposed to be the making of them as a family, but as Sarah fights for her chance to have it all, she might end up losing everything...
