A Waterstones Exclusive Q & A with The Other Mrs Walker Author Mary Paulson-Ellis

Described as doing ‘for Edinburgh what the great mistress of domestic macabre Ruth Rendell did for North London’ Mary Paulson-Ellis’s highly-praised debut The Other Mrs Walker is a twistingly entangled detective story with a difference. We sent Waterstones’ Angie Crawford in search of the mastermind behind the mystery to talk about clues to the lost and lonely, intricate plotting and Tunnocks Teacakes.

A Waterstones Exclusive Short Story: Five Seconds by Ragdoll Author Daniel Cole

Daniel Cole, author of hard-hitting debut Crime thriller Ragdoll, is no stranger to a crime scene. Working as a paramedic for three years helped Cole’s writing develop not only its pace and urgency but also the kind of black humour that Cole says “comes from the emergency services jobs – the coping mechanism”. The first part in a series featuring controversial Met Police detective, William (Wolf) Fawkes, Ragdoll is a twisted game of cat and mouse against a ruthless and bloody serial killer whilst the clock is ticking. As we welcome a key new voice in crime writing, we present an exclusive short story by Daniel Cole from a moment on the brink of emergency.
