Reviews



Excerpt


Praise for Ray Clark

"Ray Clark is a true polymath in the dark side of fiction. From horror to fantasy to science fiction to crime and to the world of computer games, few writers push the boundaries so convincingly and so elegantly. This collection is a joy to read and a rich treasure trove to be savored slowly like a fine, potent brandy"

Peter James

...Harrogate, North Yorkshire, a locked room mystery that remained unsolved for twenty years ... Hollywood, a private detective with a difference ends up with more than he bargained for ... London: witness a ghost still seeking revenge for a crime committed nearly two hundred years ago ... Brest, Brittany, we discover an unusual collector who inhabits lonely country lanes after dark ... Leeds, West Yorkshire, another locked room mystery in the City Library, a building with a very dark secret...

There's nothing better than putting your feet up in front of the fire on a winter's night, a bottle of wine by your side and a book at your disposal. Outside, the blistering rain hits the windows, draughts creep around the building, unexpected sounds give the house a life of its own. Inside, the television is off, the stereo is low, the room is warm, and you're alone with your book - a mood of tranquility pervades.

Welcome, then, to A Detective's Dozen, an anthology of short stories, each with an introduction explaining its origin.

The paragraph above defines how the collection started in the first place. Having spent a lot of time in the company of my friends, some of whom are writers but most of them simply readers. Often, we go out for meals: sometimes we spend nights in with a table full of food ... not to mention alcohol. Given the fact that we are all budding authors or avid readers it's never long before we entertain ourselves with a story - either one we know, or have written, or are trying to write. And believe me, there are some vivid imaginations around.

So grab the wine, keep the lights and the music low and prepare to absorb yourself in a world of people: those who commit crimes, and those who solve them. Whether it's a straightforward detective story you're after, or a crossover story with a twist, they're all here; and they've been written with one thing in mind, your entertainment. So, please, turn the page ... and read the first...
