Where the Snow Bleeds – update!

The second book in the Dean Matheson crime series is now available for worldwide pre-order!

Where the Snow Bleeds is the sequel to Who Cares If They Die (it can also be read standalone).

Dean is no longer working as a police officer after his stressful and somewhat unsuccessful attempt at playing detective in book 1. He’s now working as a private investigator with Rocky, his wannabe police dog, still by his side.

When a woman walks into his Las Vegas office and asks for his help in finding her missing teenage daughter, and her daughter’s friend, up in Lone Creek, Colorado he can’t resist. But he soon finds out that Lone Creek is no Aspen. The ski resort the girls were working in is desolate, with some sinister secrets to hide. It doesn’t help that Dean gets caught in one of the worst snow storms Colorado has ever seen, hampering his efforts to find the missing girls. Luckily, he has local Detective, Eva Valdez, to work with. But she’s not falling for Dean’s charms. She does things her way and she’s determined not to let any man screw things up for her.

Will Dean find the missing girls before it’s too late? Or will his past failures get in his way? You’ll have to read Where the Snow Bleeds to find out…

Available to pre-order on Amazon now!

Here’s the official blurb and cover reveal:

“You want to know what I’ve learnt after living in Lone Creek all my life? I know the snow bleeds here, Mr Matheson …”

Former police officer Dean Matheson has been playing it safe since the case that cost him almost everything. But working as a PI doesn’t quite cut it, that is until a British woman walks into his office with a job that Dean can’t resist.

The woman’s daughter, Hannah Walker, and her friend Jodie have gone missing whilst working at a ski resort in Colorado. It’s clear there’s something sinister about the girls’ disappearance, but then why are the local police department being so unhelpful?

So begins Dean’s journey to Lone Creek on the trail of the missing girls – and he’ll soon find out that in Lone Creek, everyone has something to hide …

New book announcement!

Just a bit of an update for those readers who are asking for information about my next book… The first book in the Dean Matheson series (Who Cares If They Die) was published in September 2018. Yesterday, I signed a publishing contract with Ruby Fiction for the second in the series! Woohoo!

Book 2 will be published on 30th July 2019. What’s it called? You’ll have to wait a little longer to find out! Once the book cover and title have been revealed on social media (follow me on Twitter for the latest updates), I’ll post an update here with both.

So, what can I tell you about book 2? It’s really hard to talk about it without posting spoilers, which I know nobody likes, so I’ll just give you a few buzzwords for now: Colorado, snow, blood, Dean Matheson, Rocky the rottweiler, Detective Eva Valdez, murder, lies, abduction, grief…and Beth Smith. Thought you’d seen the last of her at the end of book 1? So did Dean!

I’m so excited about book 2 and I can’t wait for you all to read it! I’ve also just finished writing book 3 in the series! Is there anything I can tell you about book 3? Hmm… not yet. But it’ll be worth the wait, I promise. Even I’ve been surprised by what happens in book 3. The characters really have taken over and I’m just along for the ride.
