Happy rebirthday to BINARY WITNESS and CODE RUNNER!

It's launch day! Today, we are welcoming the brand new editions of Binary Witness and Code Runner to the world. Available in paperback for the first time - and with a new ebook too - Crime Scene Books have given these books a new lease of life. A young woman trapped by her fear. A serial killer on the prowl. A woman locked in a darkened flat. An ex-con hiding from a vengeful gang. As clubbers in Cardiff are targeted by a brutal murderer, the police turn to unconventional means to catch the killer. Amy Lane, a desperately agoraphobic grey-hat hacker, only at peace with her fingers on a keyboard and her eyes on a screen, can peek into virtual corners in ways DI Bryn Hesketh would rather not know about. But he needs her skills, and turns to her for help. Jason, an ex-con looking to go straight, starts as Amy’s cleaner, but soon becomes much more. Order from: Amazon | Foyles | Kobo | Waterstones Coming soon...

New site design

New site design

Welcome to the new and improved Amy Lane Mysteries! We are delighted to feature original artwork by Lisa Lennon, which is also appearing on Facebook and Twitter pages. In the future, we will be offering signed bookplates incorporating this design, for those who can't reach Rosie at a signing event. Her next event is Cardiff Library's Open Space with Alis Hawkins on 18th Janaury 2018, and tickets are available here. The eagle-eyed among you will also notice that a fifth novel has appeared in the book listing. So far, it only has a working title of Hard Return and will be coming out later in 2018. And what is the reason for this flashy makeover? Watch this space!...

Terror 404 – Sneak Peek!

Terror 404 – Sneak Peek!

With both Terror 404 and the General Election only days away, we know there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes. While we can't predict the new Government, we can offer you a taste of what's to come for The Amy Lane Mysteries. When we left our heroes in Captcha Thief, they had solved a murder but at a price. Amy's past had caught up with her and Jason was back on the run. In Terror 404, Amy has been detained in a private mental health unit, isolated from all technology, and Jason is living a secret double-life in Bristol. Here's a taster: Chapter 1: The Sea’s Sway When everything was too fast, too intense, too crowded with worry, her only respite was the sea. Its calming blue or its stormy grey or the white horses riding over it—she could watch and find a tiny space inside her that was still tranquil. Emma Mason sat cross-legged on the damp grass, looking out through...

The cover for Terror 404 will be revealed soon, and we will keep you updated on the exciting events around the launch date.

She is already learning the art of crime-fighting at her mother's knee and watching Murder, She Wrote with her father. She is also insatiably curious and has a mean left hook.

Terror 404 release date

Terror 404 release date

Thank you for your patience in waiting for updates on The Amy Lane Mysteries. We can now confirm that Terror 404 will be released on 6th April 2017. We also have some very exciting news about the series that isn't quite ready to share yet, but we will keep you all posted in the build-up to the release of Terror 404. What's Rosie doing? Since the release of Captcha Thief in February, Rosie has been working on the edits for Terror 404 and the first draft of a fifth Amy Lane novel. She also moved house and gained a long commute to her day job, so her time for writing, social media and blog updates has become very limited. Her schedule is about to become even more interesting, as she's expecting her first child in January 2017!...
