Chris Simms Untitled

Chris Simms returns with his biggest and most powerful novel to date DI Jon Spicer’s investigation into the vicious slaying of a Russian asylum-seeker grinds to a halt when the man’s identity turns out to be false. Before his true identity can be discovered, more asylum-seekers start to die – each murdered in the same horrific way. By the time Spicer realises what links the men, he knows there’s a trained assassin at large who’s desperate to guard an enormous secret. And he realises, too late, he’s now the target of a man whose sole purpose is to kill... Married with four children, Chris Simms works as a freelance copywriter.

Alex Scarrow Afterlight

Human civilisation as we know it has ended. What next? The world lies devastated after a massive oil crisis. Human society has broken down and there are only a few communities surviving. Jenny Sutherland runs one of these groups. Based on a series of decaying offshore oil-rigs, a few hundred people have rebuilt a semblance of normality in this otherwise dead world. But as her people start to explore their surroundings, they realise not every survivor has the same vision of a better future. There are people out there who would take everything they have. Alex Scarrow lives in Norwich with his wife and son. www.scarrow.co.uk
