From the Author
Q: What inspired the writing of Dying Eyes?
A: I've always had a huge interest in crime thrillers and murder mysteries, whether an engaging series of books or a gripping television drama. For that reason, it felt like writing Dying Eyes was a completely natural decision at the time.
Q: There are several books in the series. Was this always the intention?
A: Yes. When I started writing Dying Eyes, I had plans to expand the books into a larger police procedural series. But I wanted to make sure I did something different with every book, and that they can all stand alone as their own story, while progressing the rollercoaster development of the protagonist, Detective Brian McDone.
Q: What makes Brian McDone different to other fictional detectives?
A: Of course, Brian has problems, like many other fictional detectives. He isn't your attractive, run-of-the-mill hero, and that's exactly the point. His problems run much deeper than the standard cliche issues of a mystery novel protagonist. Each and every book in the series peels back an extra layer of Brian's psyche. In that sense, the series books are as much a saga of Brian's development than they are the individual crimes and murders.
