You’ve got seven days… then you’re next

When a young woman falls to her death from a balcony, everyone thinks she lost her balance taking a daredevil selfie – until psychologist, Samantha Willerby, steps onto the scene. Called in by the Met to examine a series of cold cases, she uncovers a chilling link between this death and two others. The victims have one shocking detail in common: their hair was hacked off exactly seven days before they were killed.

When it comes to light that Sam knew one of the victims, she’s determined to break all the rules to track down this calculating serial killer with a terrifying calling card.

But the victims aren’t the only ones being watched. When Sam’s hair is slashed, she knows one thing for certain. She has only seven days before the murderer finishes the job. Can Sam get inside the mind of a ruthless killer before her first profiling case proves to be her last?

An utterly addictive fast-paced crime thriller,
Cut you Dead will have you hooked from the first page. It will appeal to fans of authors such as L.J. Ross, Mark Billingham and Angela Marsons.

 Here's a Snippet from Cut You Dead:

It’s crowded in the foyer. Even so, I wish it were busier so I could blend in. I hurry towards the barriers and glance up before I take out my travel pass. Sweat coats the back of my neck. I can’t see you, but that means nothing. You could creep up on me any second; there are so many corners and corridors.

I join the shortest queue at the barrier, but I feel someone right behind me, way too close. I daren’t turn round. Once through the other side, you step beside me. Your hood’s up so I can’t see your face. But, I’m really freaking out now, because it looks like you’ve got something tucked inside your jacket.

Everyone’s pushing past and no one’s seeing what I can see. The glint of metal. Jeez – is that what I think it is?

I join the escalator up ahead, squashing behind an overweight woman. You slip out of my line of sight. Should I call out? Am I being paranoid?

In a sudden movement, I dart to the side and join the flurry of commuters passing those who are standing. I make it to the steps down to the platform, my boots clattering on the stone like cascading skittles. I can hear the train rocketing through the tunnel and feel the suck of air as it approaches.

I need to be on this friggin’ train. I need to get inside and hide before you catch up with me. The wheels grind to a halt and I don’t care that I’m rude, shoving people aside, using my elbows and the edge of my bag to break through the cracks. Instead of using the nearest door, I race further up the platform. I want you to think I’ve doubled back, to faff about and miss your chance.

A woman carrying a small child gives me a dirty look. But I’ve made it. I hurtle through the last set of doors and they swoosh behind me, sealing me inside. I can breathe again. There are no spare seats, it’s a hot and stuffy crush, but I don’t care. I’m on the train – and right now that’s all that matters.

As we pull away, I catch sight of your khaki jacket out there on the platform. You’re speaking to a woman with a toddler and I start to wonder if I’ve got it all wrong...

If you like a creepy, chilling, psychological brain-twister

this one’s got your name on it!
