Hello to all those who supported my first book ​On the House, the result of which is that it's now in print and has had some encouraging reviews. Thank you all. Many of you asked me when the next one is coming out and two days ago the project to get Innocents to the Slaughter  into publication​ was launched. I hope the support I received last time is replicated for this novel, which I think you'll enjoy just as much. It follows our two Victorian protagonists on another search to root out injustice and this time it's set in the mill towns of Halifax and Bingley, West Yorkshire, and the moorland around them. I enjoyed writing up the setting and spent some days there absorbing the towns' atmospheres and features. They still have some of their cobbled streets, as well as the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and its locks in Bingley. The old mills no longer exist, but many of the buildings are still there, as is the famous Bingley Five-Rise Locks. A great atmosphere for a victorian mystery novel!

I hope you will support this project. I'll keep everyone up to date with progress. You can also find me on the Goodreads website.
