It was scarcely the first time that bestselling author Sheila Armstrong had died on stage; it would most certainly be the last.
DCI Alex Warren and his girlfriend, DI Sandra McKinnon, return from a short holiday, but hardly manage to step from the plane before he’s called to investigate the suspicious death.
Sheila,a member of Eastfarm Writers, has been stabbed to death, on stage, in a school, during a rehearsal of a play she’d written.
Her death mimics the plot.
Within hours Sandra is roped into investigating a series of crimes which appear to be mob related.
Both their enquiries run in parallel as they each struggle to make progress while supporting each other professionally and emotionally.
Written to Death is the third novel of Zach Abrams’ - Alex Warren Murder Mystery series. It’s a tartan noir thriller set in and around Glasgow. This British Police Procedural features Detective Chief Inspector Alex Warren as the senior investigating officer together with female detective, Sergeant Sandra McKinnon and supported by a team of detectives, scene of crime technicians and other specialists. Running parallel with the main murder investigation, the teams research a range of other criminal activities including organised crime, blackmail and extortion. Away from the crime investigation, there’s family drama as well as romance and more than a sprinkling of humour. Authors and writers will perhaps recognise characters types depicted in writing groups and readers familiar with the geography of Scotland and Glasgow in particular can associate with the area as the detectives tread their weary path on their way to researching the crimes and solving the mystery.
Other books in the Alex Warren Murder Mystery series are ‘Made a Killing’ and ‘Written to Death’. In addition Zach Abrams is the author of two financial crime thrillers, ‘Ring Fenced’ and ‘Source’ and he has co-written ‘Twists and Turns’ an anthology of short stories.
All Zach Abrams’ books can be purchased on either ebook or paperback format. Audiobook versions of Made a Killing and Ring Fenced are currently available and his other titles will be coming soon.
