NEWS FLASH! Guest Blog with Francis Di Plino, Author of the excellent DI Paolo Storey Thrillers.

Thank you for inviting me onto your blog, Catriona. I have two pieces of news I’d like to share with your readers – and both have end of October deadlines.

Bad Moon Rising, the first in the D.I. Paolo Storey crime series, has been nominated in the People’s Book Prize 2013, but it’s up against Frederick Forsyth’s latest, so I need all the votes I can get. If any of your lovely readers would be kind enough to cast a vote, I would be very grateful! Voting is open until the end of October.

My second piece of news means two people will be winning a prize as I have arranged a giveaway on Goodreads. Simply follow the link below to be in with a chance of winning a paperback copy of Someday Never Comes, the second in the D.I. Paolo Storey crime series.

Here is an outline of the story.
DI Paolo Storey and his team want to put a stop to the dark, secretive world of child prostitution. When a child is found dead, and another killed while under police protection in hospital, the tension rises as the team face a wall of silence.

Who is the mysterious Joey? How can Paolo find evidence against the suspected paedophile ring? Someone knows about these traffickers, but absolutely no one will talk. It takes all of Paolo Storey's experience and intelligence to force the investigation to a thrilling conclusion.

Meanwhile, as well as unrest and betrayal in his team, Paolo Storey's personal life is in turmoil - and the final twist leaves the door open to more problems in his future.

This novel will appeal to crime readers who like dark, intense thrillers and are not put off by difficult topics.

There are twists and turns, unanswered questions, and a wealth of undesirable characters to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
