I had the privilege to be interviewed the other day by the lovely and talented Anne-Marie Ormsby on her blog, where we had a chat about the inspiration behind my upcoming crime thriller, THE WATCHER.
Here's a little teaser of our talk, you can read the rest over at Anne-Marie's blog by clicking on the link at the end of the preview...
BEHIND THE BOOK - THE WATCHER
Having at last found a publisher for one of my own books, I have had the good fortune to find myself in the company of a bunch of great writers lately. Its great to be part of a community of writers sharing ideas and general chat. Its also a great way of finding new books to read!
One of the novels coming out this year is right up my street ; a serial killer on the loose in London with a detective hot on his trail. The Watcher, the debut novel of Eli Carros is being released by Crooked Cat Publishing on 21st June.
Being a bit of a true crime nut and crime fiction fan and always excited by any London based books, I thought I’d have chat with the author to find out more about what inspired him.
Tell us the basic premise of your novel?
The Watcher is about an obsessive serial killer who stalks his victims before violently attacking them. It takes readers into the mind of a true psychopath, exploring what makes him tick and learning how he became who he became. It’s a novel about alienation, prejudice, abuse, and shame and how formative life experience can tip the balance of an unstable mind. It also takes readers behind the eyes of DI Jack Grayson, who’s been tasked with the unenviable job of stopping a brutal killer who leaves no trace before he strikes again.
