The much anticipated 4th novel featuring Inspector John Carlyle is out now
"People come looking for the truth. Sometimes, not very often, I tell them that there is no truth. There are only facts. People arrange them how they will. They discard the ones that don’t fit the story they want to tell. I am no different. Everything becomes fiction in the end.
People come looking for justice. There is no justice. All I can hope to offer is peace of mind. What the Americans call closure. An acceptance of the random nature of things. That shit happens.
All you can do is move on.
If that is not enough. I am not your man. These are not the stories for you. They're not about right and wrong. They're about who gets to choose. And the price that is paid."
