When Darkness Falls

Just released on Amazon.

A superbly crafted crime thriller by an author who has written 5 novels, award winning short stories and poetry, and 2 author's writing resource books.

Two murders have occurred near the town of Moorland; nestled on the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales.

Detective Inspector Tom Madison has no clues to work with, and there were no witnesses. He’s under pressure from those above him and he’s been lumbered with PC Paul Smith, a known informer by all who work in CID, and Detective Sergeant Gary Banks, a much too ambitious Detective for Madison's liking.

DNA and forensic analysis is unheard of and Madison will have to rely on persistence and sheer good luck, and the operation he needs has not been successful yet, and it's imperative it remains a secret.
