    TRUE CRIME: The USA's first recorded 20th century mass shooting - Ellen J. Green

    TRUE CRIME: The USA's first recorded 20th century mass shooting - Ellen J. Green

    Ellen J. Green has written a book called Murder in the Neighbourhood about America’s first recorded modern day mass shooting in 1949 in Camden, New Jersey. The gunman was Howard Unruh, a war veteran who killed 13 people from his neighbourhood including three children, in just 12 minutes. It rocked the state and the nation. Sadly it wasn’t an anomaly and mass shootings have continued. 
    Ellen is a therapist at a maximum security prison and encounters the tragedy of violence every day. Murder in the Neighbourhood is her first non-fiction book. 
    Murder in the Neighbourhood is published by Thread Books and Hachette.

    I would make a terrible police officer - Stuart MacBride

    I would make a terrible police officer - Stuart MacBride

    My entry into the work of bestselling Scottish author Stuart MacBride is his latest book No Less the Devil … and I absolutely loved it. 
    This book features the character, Detective Sergeant Lucy McVeigh who is part of a team working around the clock to find a serial killer nicknamed the Bloodsmith. 
    Stuart is also the author of the bestselling series of books featuring Detective Sergeant Logan McRae, set in Aberdeen. Logan was first introduced to readers in Cold Granite.
    No Less the Devil is published by Bantam Press (Imprint of Penguin)
    You can follow Stuart on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/stuartmacbridebooks
    The book Stuart recommends at the end of this episode is Everyone in My Family has Killed Someone by Benjamin Stevenson. Stuart also mentions his Aussie author friend Adrian Highland’s book Diamond Dove.
    Meaning of the Scottish word THRAWN that Stuart mentions in relation to the Scots is, according to the Scottish Language Centre, stubbornness and absolute conviction.

    I want my readers to have a really good time - John Stamp

    I want my readers to have a really good time - John Stamp

    I was introduced to John Stamp’s writing through his latest book - a crime action thriller called Blood Red Ivory. It’s got a compelling lead character Special Agent Tyrone Benhoff who is with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service - that’s NCIS, like the popular TV show.
    Tyrone is on the outer after getting on the wrong side of his command…and he’s transferred to Djibouti in Africa. 
    Whilst this is fiction, John, who writes across crime, action and horror genres, has first hand experience of what this world is like. He’s served as a Special Agent of the FBI, NCIS, and as a Police Officer in South Carolina.
    We chat a lot about crime and writing…and also podcasting because John has his own podcast talking to true crime writers. 
    You can follow John on Twitter @JohnStampWriter
    Blood Red Ivory is published by Wild Blue Press

    Domestic noir is the real deal - Kylie Kaden

    Domestic noir is the real deal - Kylie Kaden

    The domestic thriller, or domestic noir,  is a genre that is really popular and we have some Aussie authors writing gripping tales that are published worldwide.
    Kylie Kaden is one of these authors. I discovered Queensland-based Kylie by reading her latest book One of Us which lifts the lid on what, on the surface, appears to be the polished suburban life. It’s a premise that I can’t get enough of - what goes on behind closed doors? What secrets are people desperately trying to keep hidden below that Instagram-perfect veneer? 
    You can follow Kylie  on Instagram @kyliekadenwrites
    One Of Us is published by Pantera Press.
