A Conversation With Quertermous

What follows is a snapshot of the typical conversations Bryon Quertermous and I have just about once a week. They are an ever-shifting, topic hopping nightmare to translate, but damn are they something I’ve grown quite fond of. In the spirit of Bryon’s June 14, 2016, release of RIOT LOAD, Bryon and I thought it would be mildly amusing to give the public a look inside our strange communications. Oddly enough, what started out as an idea of me interviewing Bryon about the upcoming book, then turned into Bryon interviewing me. Bad Bryon! That guy never could stick to a plan. Anyway, here goes: Bryon: Kate did the official review of Riot Load,...

The Alex Grecian Interview

Kate: Congratulations on the upcoming release of LOST AND GONE FOREVER!  This is your 5th book about Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad. What can readers expect from the Murder Squad and Jack the Ripper’s ongoing saga? Alex: This one finally brings Jack’s saga to an end. (He’s disturbingly easy for me to write, which is probably why I kept him around for the three most recent books, but he’s not the most pleasant fellow to have around, so I’m glad to see the back of him now.) Meanwhile, Walter Day hasn’t been himself lately, and Nevil Hammersmith has opened a very unusual detective agency. The Murder Squad series is never the same for me, from...

Clare Mackintosh talks about I LET YOU GO

I Let You Go has very powerful themes of emotional and physical abuse, atonement and forgiveness. Two detectives are attempting to find out who was responsible for the hit and run accident that killed a five-year-old boy. They are thwarted by a rainy and dark day, and that no one was able to figure out what kind of car hit him or see any noteworthy characteristics of the driver, basically leaving the detectives without any clues to follow. The main character, Jenna, disappears, attempting to make a fresh start in a small town on the Welsh coast. But she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that...
