I received a lovely email from a woman in Caithness today;
“ After giving If Necessary, Alone as Christmas presents, my friend told me that she set herself the task of reading a chapter a day “as it wasn’t her genre”. She was so hooked by the fifth chapter that she couldn’t put it down and just carried on reading as she was so in to the story.”
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. If you are looking for something new to read to bring in the New Year take a look at my latest novel If Necessary, Alone. Available from Amazon & selected bookstores
VM Knox is currently researching for Book 3 in the Clement Wisdom Series.
In Spite of All Terror
1940. Britain stands alone facing an immanent Nazi invasion. Handpicked groups of men form the covert Auxiliary
Units; ordinary men by day, they will be saboteurs and assassins by night. With a life expectancy of two weeks, their
identities are a closely guarded secret from all but the local senior policeman
but once activated, that policeman will be the cell’s first victim.
Wisdom, a humble vicar and leader of the East Sussex Auxiliaries, receives the
invasion alert and assembles his team. Burdened with the tension between his
faith and his patriotic duty, he sets out to eliminate the Police Inspector,
only to find him dead already. While
assisting Lewes Police to find the Inspector’s killer, events take an ominous
turn as one by one, members of Clement’s
team are found callously murdered.
Priorities shift and every aspect of life is called into question when
Clement becomes embroiled in the murky world of espionage, where nothing is
what it seems.
Spite of All Terror
is the first in a series of crime thrillers that mix historical fact, crime
fiction and superb characterisations. They will keep you hungry for the next
piece of this wartime puzzle.
