I’ve polished up the manuscript for Naked Aggression and now I’m ready to do some serious editing for the next novel in the series, Naked Grief. These books are hard-nosed, gritty crime stories involving an American airline pilot who seems to get himself tangled up in murder wherever he goes in the world.
I’ve aimed to make this series his story. The harsh crime elements are important in providing a mystery to be solved, but they also tell us more about the guy and the way he reacts under pressure. I won’t spoil things by telling you more than that.
Why is he carrying a sack-load of grief in the second book? And what’s he doing in France anyway? And what has that sultry young girl in St Malo got to do with it? The answers will lay everything bare… to quote an expression.
