Poisoned Saints has so far received rave 5 star reviews on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.US
The book is inspired by real life situations I myself have been involved with, I wanted to depict the true life of the criminal in London overspill towns, without using real names or events, then entwine a mystery and a twist, or two.
The title is from the fictional town in which the book is set, which is named, ironically, after a saint. And the main characters are poisoned through experience and narcotics.
I didn't find writing this book hard, I found it thoroughly enjoyable, and I am currently writing the follow up.
I really strive to portray an interesting, fast paced story, whilst underpinning the whole thing with a deep and true message, crime does not pay.
