Three words were all it took.
Three words to devour a man.
And with it…
Everyone is talking about Counting Corpses:
If Harry loses this case, he loses everything.
A man’s body is mutilated. Missing a leg. Dumped on the side of the road. He is the first. He won’t be the last.
DI Harry Cross is on the verge of retirement when a body turns up harboring a mysterious letter. A serial killer has something that plunges Harry into the most important case of his career. His son.
As his life falls apart around him, Harry is left to fight against the system he has served for over thirty years with a smattering of clues. Each more cryptic than the last.
With each dead body, Harry receives another goading, deranged letter. All pointing to one disturbing fact. Harry must find the killer before his son becomes the final victim.
Fans of Harlan Corben, Lee Child, and Karin Slaughter will devour this mesmerizing debut crime thriller.
A dead sex offender. His eyes removed. A six-year-old girl found rescued at the scene. Alone. Scared. Unscathed.
Another mutilated corpse is being suppressed by the Police Commissioner - A High Court Judge - bearing all the same hallmarks of the killer.
After losing everything, the case offers retired DI Harry Cross a chance at redemption. A chance to right some past wrongs. But the crime scenes bear chilling, childish, clues that make Harry question the savagery of the killer. And her motives.
More clues wither in Harry’s grasp as the bodies pile up. A dark secret bursting to be uncovered. But only if Harry can stop the killer before her list is finished.
Counting More Corpses pushes the boundaries between right and wrong and will turn your idea of justice upside-down. Fans of Harlan Corben, Lee Child, and Karin Slaughter will love The Harry Cross Thrillers.
Nana: A term of endearment used in some countries for one’s Grandma. Some say the title is derived from the Italian word for Grandmother, Nonna. Another theory is that it stems from the word Nanny, i.e., someone who takes care of children.
Meet Olly’s nana, Ivy. It takes more than clean dentures, brandy, and bingo night to keep this one happy!
Nana Ivy lives in Newhaven Crescent, where most of the other residents are past their expiry date and all kinds of batshit crazy, the kind of place where you hang your sanity up at the door.
Being the matriarchal type, Ivy cares for the other residents as though they were kin, so of course, it’s of enormous concern when their veins begin to blacken and they start shedding skin, not to mention the glistening things crawling out of their hair. They’re pushing their luck, and Nana Ivy knows it.
Did I mention she has a dark secret?
Young Olly doesn’t know what to make of it when he comes to visit, but he’s about to find out there’s more to his nana than cough drops and slippers. Oh yes, he’s in for a long night.
