With Terror 404's launch date fast approaching, here's a little reminder of what's happened in the series so far... Way back in the depths of 2013 – during the rule of the Tory-Lib Dem Coalition, in the time of the iPhone 5 – Jason Carr was released from prison after serving time for car theft. Desperate to get back on his feet in a cold, wet November, Jason took on a job as a cleaner – and entered the house of Amy Lane.

Amy Lane #3: Captcha Thief

I am delighted to announce a new book in The Amy Lane Mysteries! Captcha Thief, the third full-length novel in The Amy Lane Mysteries, will be available to buy from all good ebook stores on 20th July 2015. I would like to apologise for the delay in making this announcement. The main reason for this is that Carina Press and I have parted ways, and I will be self-publishing The Amy Lane Mysteries in the future. To maintain consistency and high editorial quality, I have retained the fantastic Deb Nemeth to edit the series. I am committed to The Amy Lane Mysteries and Book 4 is planned for release in early 2016. Thank you for your ongoing support and expressing your love for the series. I look forward to you joining me for the next chapter in Amy and Jason's crime-fighting adventure!...
