Soon he would be able to touch her, to feel the warmth of her blood. And when the time came, nothing would stop him.
As D.C. Jennifer Knight investigates a routine stabbing in the quiet town of Haven, she is shocked at what seems like a personal message from beyond the grave.
When more bodies are found, Jennifer is convinced the killings are somehow linked. What she discovers is more chilling than she could possibly imagine. The murders mirror those of the notorious Grim Reaper – from over twenty years ago. A killer her mother helped convict.
Jennifer can no longer ignore the personal connection. Is there a copycat killer at work? Was the wrong man convicted? Or is there something more sinister at play …
With her mother’s terrifying legacy spiralling out of control, Jennifer must look into her own dark past in a fight not only to stop a killer – but to save herself and those she loves.

‘If you’re looking for a brand spanking new crime wave-breaker, then look no further than the obsessive-compulsive Detective Constable Jennifer Knight – a determined wearer of killer heels with an intuition like no other on the force’ Little Bookness Lane
‘A refreshing and rather different supernatural police procedural story. It reminded me of the X Files, in the way it normalises the paranormal and the just plain strange. As it is so well written, I found it very believable, absorbing and highly entertaining… with a surprising twist. One to look out for!’ Northern Crime
‘A great read and well written. It’s an imaginative mix of murder mystery and paranormal thrills.’ Word Gurgle

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I work as a full time police officer, and I enjoy bringing my readers into a busy police environment. I show them what it’s like to deal with suspects in custody, and the frustrations officers encounter when trying to put the pieces of the evidential puzzle together. I have also experienced real life paranormal activity in my home, and I wrote a book of my experiences called Paranormal Intruder. It made sense when I wrote my first novel that I would infuse my experiences in both the police and paranormal to create a chilling crime thriller. People have told me it’s a fast paced hide-under-the-duvet crime novel so I think it’s worked quite well.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I have a brief love affair with all of my main characters when I first create them. Originality is very important to me, and I just tend to sit and mull things over in my head until they come to me.
It’s like when you meet someone new, and they consume your thoughts from morning until night until you work them out. I try to imagine how they would react in certain situations, their little foibles, what makes them tick. Sometimes if I get really stuck in a story I’ll get a pen and paper and pretend I’m interviewing them, asking them how they feel about the situation. Frank’s character in Don’t Turn Around came very easily to me. But in book two of the DC Knight series, Bert was very hidden. It took me a long time to draw out his character, and at times, I almost gave up. I’m so glad I persevered, because he was a fascinating subject once I got to know him.
