Noir: Strand

The Noir books are a quartet of sinister crime novels I’ve been planning for a while. I have no idea when I’m going to actually finish them – but I don’t need to eat or sleep, right?

Strand is the first book and deals with a killer who enjoys–and I do mean, enjoys–strangulation as a method of killing. for this person, it’s all about the shared, slow thrill of the approach of death.

The other books planned, are, in no particular order: Scorch, Seed and Stare. These books feature darker, more sinister crimes; they are not for the faint-hearted.
