At 33 years old, Daniel Cole has worked as a paramedic, an RSPCA officer and most recently for the RNLI, driven by an intrinsic need to save people or perhaps just a guilty conscience about the number of characters he kills off in his writing.

On writing his debut novel RAGDOLL, which began life as an unproduced television pilot, Daniel says: 'After five years of rejections, I had a yearning to actually finish one of my stories rather than leave it collecting dust with the others under my bed. With no formal training at all, I feel I wrote the book very selfishly, with the aim of creating something that I, personally, would love: as shocking as it is humorous, as thought-provoking as it is relentlessly entertaining, and with a cast of characters who feel like friends by the end of it.'

He currently lives in sunny Bournemouth and can usually be found down the beach when he ought to be writing book two instead.

And so the writer turns it ...

Sooo….book #2. A daunting task, particularly when the first one was a huge hit. But this author really upped the ante by leaving out his popular MC William “Wolf” Fawkes & switching the focus to another character. That would be DCI Emily Baxter. She worked the Ragdoll case with Fawkes & is still r...

Thanks to NetGalley and to Trapeze for offering me an ARC copy of this novel that I freely chose to review. This novel had passed me by (my to be read list is getting longer and longer) when it was first published, but I have been reading quite a number of thrillers recently, saw this book mentioned...

I actually enjoyed this book. It has everything a good thriller needs (morally ambiguous characters, good pacing, interesting twists) and nothing it doesn't need (gratuitous needless violence which is almost pornographic in its description; helpless/hapless victims hunted by an evil sociopath to gra...
