Wish You Dead

What’s the worst thing you can do when your heart’s been broken? Find out in this tribute to The Monkey’s Paw.

There are signed copies of The Darkest Water and a few of my other books in Waterstones Wolverhampton. This is the only place to get signed copies at the moment so if you’re local pop in and grab one. (But make sure you take it to the till after grabbing it.)
Weekend read: I Will Ruin You, the new one by one of my favourite authors, Linwood Barclay. Richard is a teacher who averts a tragedy at his school but finds himself entangled with a group of local criminals.  Fast paced, fun and unpredictable. It’s out in July.
Research… Can anyone recommend any other good books about psychopaths/sociopaths?
