The latest DCI Jack Harris novel has been published by the Book Folks. Thou Shalt Kill is my seventeenth crime novel to be published.

Book details: When a man is discovered murdered by crucifixion, an evangelical religious group falls under suspicion.

A dead body nailed to a shed unsettles even hardened detective Jack Harris. Despite being told that boundary feuds in allotments can easily come to blows, the veteran crime solver suspects something more sinister is afoot. The fervent leader of an unorthodox Christian group is evasive and cagey when faced with questions, so the inquiry begins to centre on its members.
As police probe into their past, connections between the group and local people begin to emerge. It seems that it’s not by chance that the devout turned up on DCI Harris’s patch. But what really links these “happy clappies” to the murder, and is there a danger that the focus on them will let the real killer off the hook?

When a second killing occurs, with all the same hallmarks, detectives must act fast to solve the puzzle and put the culprit behind bars.

THOU SHALT KILL is the fifth book in a series of detective stories featuring DCI Jack Harris and his team, set in the fictional Pennine town of Hafton. It can be enjoyed on its own or as part of a series. The previous books, available FREE with Kindle Unlimited and in paperback, are as follows.
1.DEAD HILL
2.THE VIXEN’S SCREAM
3.TO DIE ALONE
4.TO HONOUR THE DEAD
John Dean is the author of several other crime fiction titles, including the bestselling DCI John Blizzard series, also available on Amazon.

A question of pace

I am editing the first draft of a new Jack Harris novel at the moment and my big preoccupation is pace.Learning how to write a narrative with the right pace is one of the most crucial writing skills. Get it wrong and you are jeopardising your chances of success. Get it right and you are onto something.In this case, there are some sections where characters are repeating what others have already said in other passages.Deleting some lines has removed such sections, eradicated the slowing of pace…See More
