The first of the 3 part series, The Murder Bag was acquired by Selina Walker at Random House within 24 hours of reading the manuscript, and will be published in hardback in May 2014.

The series features Detective Max Wolfe, Insomniac. Dog lover. Coffee addict. Boxer. Orphan. Defender of the weak, avenger of slaughtered parents and every murderer’s worst nightmare. The Murder Bag tells the story of a serial killer on the loose. He cuts throats and he is good at it. Twenty years ago seven rich, privileged students became friends at their exclusive private school, Potter’s Field, founded five hundred years ago by King Henry VIII. Suddenly they have started dying in the most violent way imaginable…

Detective Max Wolfe follows the bloody trail from the backstreets and bright lights of the city all the way to the corner rooms in the corridors of power. At enormous personal cost, what Wolfe uncovers is a horrific secret that has been buried for two decades - and is now ready to explode.
