We're kicking off this week's DHH News Roundup with a fantastic endorsement from Mari Hannah for T. M. Payne's forthcoming debut novel, Long Time Dead (Amazon Publishing, March 2024):
"T. M. Payne’s thrilling debut Long Time Dead has a great plot with a well-drawn cast of characters, led by DI Sheridan Holler. If you are a fan of police procedurals, this one set in the mean streets of Liverpool is for you."
Meanwhile, Jia struggles to control unrest amongst those that oppose her.

The new chilling crime novel coming this winter, The Killer's Christmas List by Chris Frost (aka Chris McDonald), coming this November from HarperNorth, has been given a fabulous quote from fellow author Chris Whitaker:
