Cover and Blurb of Debut Novel, MY KIND OF JUSTICE - out June 2015.

Out June 2015 via Caffeine Nights Publishing
Newly-appointed DI Jack Striker, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, has a dark secret, one that would land him in prison. 
Striker’s first case seems a straight-forward gang-on-gang slaying, until a notorious youth is found hanged. Before any chance to investigate, bodies begin stacking-up.
With the hot breath of the brass burning his neck, including hard-faced DCI Maria Cunningham who’s onto him, Striker knows this case will make or break him. 
The media-dubbed ‘Hoodie Hunter’ mixes MO’s, leaving few leads, and Striker recognises the work of a highly-skilled vigilante killer.
When Striker’s nephew is put into a coma, it becomes personal. Desperate, he runs an unofficial op’ with trusty colleagues, stunning DC Lauren Collinge and un-PC DC Eric Bardsley, placed in the line of fire.
The killer’s trail leads Striker into his own shady past, but will he catch the Hoodie Hunter before he or a colleague becomes the next victim?

If you can't wait till June, DI Jack Striker and the Hoodie Hunter feature in the short story, MOPPING UP in the ebook collection, THE COPS OF MANCHESTER

The cover is so great! The hand, and the head in the background. It corresponds with the title. Both have a vigilante theme.

The synopsis is also awesome.

Col Bury said...

Thank you very much, Charlene. That's reassuring to know.

Hi, Col. Love the cover and good luck with the book launch. I have just started a blog and my second post is a link to my story on the old TKnC site, which is what prompted me to look you up!

Col Bury said...

Hi Susan, Sorry I missed this comment (filters set high). Lovely to hear from you and thanks for the kind words. Hope you are well.

No problem, Col. I'm well - the freelance travel writing is still lurking in the background, but I'm happily concentrating on short fiction at the moment!

Wishing you all the best Col!
