Exciting news!

Although currently out of print, The Hastings series to be relaunched by The Book Folks in 2020 along with the fourth in the series: Deadly Tide.

# You Too

The third in the Hastings series.

A partner in a successful law firm in the seaside town of Hastings dies when his penchant for erotic auto-asphyxiation apparently goes too far. The head of the Crown Prosecution Service in E Sussex is photographed drunk and undressed at a well-known dogging location. A corporate lawyer in a city finance company is found drugged and drowned in his employer’s swimming pool. What is the connection between these bizarre incidents and have they been deliberately set up?

Body Heat

The second in the Hastings series sees the Forensic Medical Practitioner faced with a gruesome series of murders which leave the remains of the victims twisted and charred. The
hunt heats up for the arsonist, and so does Jo’s relationship with the exasperating DI Miller. A
chilling mystery with lead characters you want to spend more time with, and a murderer you
definitely want to avoid.

Candy Denman brings all her well-honed, screenwriting skills to bear to give us one of the most chilling and ruthless crime fiction villains this side of Hannibal Lecter. From the first words of its devastating opening chapter I was completely hooked on ‘Body Heat’ and you will be too. This is crime fiction at its best.”
