Wonny Leaabout this book: The third book in the DCI Martin Phelps series 'Killing by Colours' finds Martin at his most vulnerable. Usually he is the blue-eyed boy of the Press and his clear up rate on crimes is second to none - but he’s getting nowhere fast this time.
A seriously disturbed killer is using some bizarre poetry to taunt the team regarding the identity of his next victim and giving clues as to the location of the crime. It’s bad enough that the killer is keeping one step ahead of DCI Phelps but even more worrying is the fact that he seems to be setting Martin up to be one of his victims.
The use of colours in the poems provided an opportunity to highlight landmarks and companies in and around Cardiff and I hope readers will be prompted to find out more about some of them. It was difficult to decide what colour to use for the front cover but when walking down the road that leads to Cardiff castle I saw the Welsh flag flying and thought of the expression ‘flying the colours’. It gave me what I needed as a link to the title of my book and I was able to snap the picture.
As this is the third book in the series I hope readers are enjoying the development of the main characters and relating to the characteristics that make up their personalities.
