Before Homeland’s Carrie Mathison, there was Special Agent Ren Bryce of the FBI – created by bestselling author Alex Barclay. Like Carrie, Ren struggles with bi-polar disorder, and in this exclusive post, Alex explains why it was so important to her to create a successful, functioning bi-polar character, who is not the bad guy.
Jilliane Hoffman is due to publish her much anticipated 4th novel Pretty Little Things in February 2010. A new standalone thriller it introduces us to Special Agent Bobby Dees. An officer whose own daughter is currently missing, Dees gets called onto the case of the recently dissapeared Elaine Emerson and seems to be the only person with a chance of finding her. The search for Elaine draws him into a dark world of her internet boyfriend ‘bogeyman’ whose reality is as cruel and chilling as the worst thing Dees can imagine.
Not often does a truly chilling tale come along, but this is it and all of us in the Killer Reads camp are pretty excited about it and because we’re feeling so generous we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek just for you.
