The cracking debut of A. J. Raffles, proper English gentleman and jewel thief extraordinaire Sometimes the greatest of partnerships are born in the direst of moments. For Bunny Manders and A. J. Raffles, such a moment comes when a bad night at the baccarat tables threatens to end in suicide. Hundreds of pounds in the red, Bunny grows so desperate that he asks Raffles, a former classmate who captained their public school’s cricket team, for help. When Raffles hesitates, Bunny pulls a gun out of his coat pocket and puts it to his head. “I never dreamt you had such stuff in you, Bunny!” says Raffles, a gleam in his eye. A few hours later, he and his old school chum break into a jeweler’s shop and steal thousands of pounds’ worth of diamonds and gemstones. Disaster averted, adventures begun. In these thrilling stories, E. W. Hornung introduced the world to a duo as gifted at burglary as Sherlock Holmes and Watson are at detection. Full of sophisticated banter, hair-raising close calls, and nefarious schemes, Raffles: The Amateur Cracksman is a masterwork of crime fiction and irrefutable proof that there truly is honor among thieves.

Contemporary British Television Crime Drama Book Excerpt:

Contemporary British Television Crime Drama examines one of the medium’s most popular genres and places it within its historical and industrial context. The television crime drama has proved itself capable of numerous generic reinventions and continues to enjoy some of the highest viewing figures. Crime drama offers audiences stories of right and wrong, moral authority asserted and resisted, and professionals and criminals, doing so in ways that are often highly entertaining, innovative, and thought provoking. In examining the appeal of this highly dynamic genre, this volume explores how it responds not only to changing social debates on crime and policing, but also to processes of hybridization within the television industry itself. Contributors, many of whom are leading figures in UK television studies, analyse popular series such as Broadchurch, Between the Lines, Foyle’s War, Poirot, Prime Suspect, Sherlock and Wallander. Essays examine the main characteristics of television crime drama production, including the nature of trans-Atlantic franchises and literary and transnational adaptations. Adopting a range of feminist, historical, aesthetic and industrial approaches, they offer incisive interrogations that provide readers with a rich understanding of the allure of crime drama to both viewers and commissioners.

The Remorseless Trilogy Book Excerpt:

Ever wondered what goes on inside the head of a stone cold killer? This dark, disturbing trilogy will thrust you deep into the minds of some of the most evil criminal psychopaths you would never wish to meet... 'Had I read Will Patching’s novels while still a serving officer I'm sure his insights into the workings of their minds would have helped me understand the motives and actions of these people.' Rick Asker, a 30-year veteran UK police detective. These three gripping killer thrillers follow the fortunes of criminal profiler, Doctor Colin Powers, and his colleague-cum-pal, Detective Inspector Jack Carver of London's Metropolitan Police, as they tackle these devious, vicious and highly manipulative individuals. But be warned: these chilling, twisted thrillers are written in deep point of view - including that of violent killers - and contain imagery some readers find disturbing. Some characters use profanity too. As one reader said: 'Patching goes where other authors fear to tread...' In brief: Remorseless In this spine-tingling thriller, criminal profiler Doc Powers learns a twisted killer he helped put away is up for parole. Can Doc keep this violent psychopath behind bars — while hanging on to his own sanity? Remorseless was awarded the Ebook Skill Mystery & Thriller of the Year, 2017, and has been described as 'British crime writing at its best!' Mutilated Doc’s lover's missing, Jack’s hunting a sadistic killer his team call ‘The Surgeon’, and Doc has to deal with another raging psychopath from his past... Mutilated led Scott M, an active UK police detective, to comment that reading the novel was 'just like riding with my crew'. Another avid reader said, 'If you thought Remorseless was dark then just wait till you read this! Gritty and graphic hardly describe this taut thriller, it was quite simply unputdownable...' Gaslighting Billy Leech - the young lad who suffered in Remorseless - is now a precocious teen. He's also a budding psychopath with revenge in mind, and Doc's life is in danger - again. Gaslighting received rave reviews on launch including this from the Reading Experience book blog: 'Suspense glueing me to the pages, heart beating faster than normal, empathizing with the characters, fearing for them - I knew there wouldn't be an easy happy ending...' These killer tales encompass police procedural, psychological suspense, elements of murder mystery, and out-and-out balls-to-the-wall thrills. They are not a quick read but full length novels, averaging over 120,000 words each, containing complex characters and intricate plots. NB. If you are looking for a light-hearted mystery, or need a trigger warning for any reason, then you should probably look elsewhere! A roller-coaster ride for any fan of pulp noir, hard-boiled British detective novels, and dark psycho thrillers. Contains the gritty realism of authors like Chris Carter, Stuart MacBride and Mo Hayder, combined with the wide-ranging imagination of Stephen King and Lee Child. Professionals in both law enforcement and psychotherapy have complimented the author on the veracity of his villainous characters - they are 'Seriously scary!' Are you ready and willing to get inside the mind of a violent killer?
