The Scott Jericho Crime Thriller Series, Book 1

Fresh out of prison, former Detective Constable Scott Jericho is a desperate man.

Disgraced and penniless after his assault on a violent suspect, he is forced to seek refuge with the fairground family he once rejected. Now, troubled by his failure, Jericho’s brilliant mind stagnates.

That is until a series of bizarre murders reawaken his interest. Men and women with no obvious link to each other are being ritualistically slaughtered.

Slaughtered in ways that recall an old legend of the Jericho travelling fair.

Now, in a race against time, he must unpick the threads of a baffling mystery. But as his investigation unfolds and the corpses pile up, a shocking truth awaits him. A revelation that will test not only Jericho’s intellect but challenge the very core of his morality.

Full of breath-taking twists, KILLING JERICHO is perfect for fans of JD Kirk, John Connolly, LJ Ross, Alex Smith, David J Gatward and JE Mayhew.



The Scott Jericho Crime Thriller Series, Book 2

Something very wicked this way comes…

Former CID detective Scott Jericho is done with murder. Done with puzzles. Done with the dark rage that seems to haunt him.

That is until a vicious serial killer targets someone close to him.

Now Jericho is back, his thirst for justice remorseless.

But time is running out. Fortune tellers and psychics are being slaughtered and everything points to a link with a live TV event due to be broadcast on Halloween night. But what is the significance of the macabre wax effigies found at every crime scene? Why is celebrity psychic Darrel Everwood convinced he will die in four days time? And is Jericho’s lover Harry really involved in the murders?

As a startling truth is revealed and an old enemy re-emerges, a murder beyond imagining is about to become the media event of the century…

Full of breath-taking twists, SILENCING THE DEAD is the second book in the darkly gothic SCOTT JERICHO crime series. It is perfect for fans of JD Kirk, John Connolly, LJ Ross, Alex Smith, David J Gatward and JE Mayhew
