Here's Richard to tell us a little more about his books.
Apostle Rising was my first novel. It is about a serial killer crucifying politicians. I think the general public found a killer they had great empathy for. He won their hearts and minds.
My second is out now. Mr. Glamour is about a glamorous world of designer people who are being targeted. It is about a killer who is watching everyone.
It contains two of the most unusual cops you will ever encounter. Flare and Steele have problems, lead double lives, and catch the killer.
The sub plot concerns an obsessive suburban housewife with a dark and shocking secret. And the characters from the main plot stray into her world.
The ending is a series of shocks. It is already getting great reviews.
