G. G. Rigbyabout this book: The book is part of a series following the work of forty-two year old Detective Lee Cob of the Greater Manchester police force and his partner Jim Moran. After discovering the body of a woman viciously dispatched, both men embark upon a corkscrew hunt for the killer or killers while at the same time trying to keep the perpetrator/s from adding more bodies to the mix.
I was brought up on hard nosed American detective novels and decided to weave the genre into the English style of policing. My readers will be people – male and female – who like a hard hitting detective who knows when to fight and when to show patience, remorse and tenderness as required. "Nowhere Safe" took about nine months to write and another two months – with the help of a knowledgeable friend and an equally skilful editor – to produce the finished article. The title was the end of a long deliberation on the suitability of each character and what happened to them throughout the novel. I finally settled on the one person who was most at risk and that gave me the title. The cover was the result of my giving the gist of the story to a professional book cover designer and he did the rest. He gave me three excellent choices and I used the best of the three.
I don't find writing too difficult once I have the bones of the novel in my head, and work on each character as they come to life. Don't ask me where I get them from because I don't know, they come into view as and when I need them, not always at the right time and not always in the right place, but once they appear I know I'll use them. I never plot a story because I think it restricts the flow of thought and I like to allow my thoughts to wander all over the place at will – sometimes outrageously – and then delete the parts I don't want. I do research some things for my books: locations, people from history, machinery or weapons etc. but never allowing the research to get in the way of a good story.
If I learn anything from my writing it is to try harder with the next book, continually trying to create a better novel. I always hope my readers will enjoy my work and I welcome any feedback, good or bad. That way I can learn how to please my reading public who I hope will become my reading friends.
