Chris Longmuir's crime novels all feature the dark side of life. The three novels in her Dundee Crime Series are police procedurals set in the Dundee of today. Night Watcher, the first in the series focuses on a stalker and a woman with revenge on her mind. Dead Wood is more of a woman in jeopardy sort of novel which features a serial killer, gangsters, drug users and pushers, and women on the game. Missing Believed Dead follows the aftermath of child abduction and is an intriguing mystery. Chris has recently published a new historical crime series, which features Dundee's first policewoman in a dark and dangerous Dundee in The Death Game, and finds her in Gretna in Devil's Porridge where she becomes involved in murder mystery complicated by spies and sabotage. Chris has also published a historical family saga and two non-fiction books and is currently working on two more crime novels.

Dead Wood was originally published by Polygon after winning the Dundee International Book Prize. All the books are published as ebooks and paperbacks, and are available from Amazon,  the Kindle Store, the Apple iBook store, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.
