Wendy H Jones

“The plot moves along at a cracking pace and the highs and lows, and twists and turns leave you breathless. If you like gritty tartan noir then you would do well to read this book. I would highly recommend it.” – Wendy H Jones


Valerie Laws

“As with her other contemporary Dundee thrillers, Dead Wood is well written, tightly plotted, dark and well, thrilling. Lately, like many crime readers/writers, I've been wary of too many books with female victims of twisted serial killers but having read her other three books on kindle I had to read this one and it's so good I devoured it despite the female body count! Highly recommended.” – Valerie Laws

"Dead Wood" is the best book I have read for some time. Thrillers are supposed to grab you from the outset and keep you enthralled right to the end and "Dead Wood" most certainly did that for me. I think the main reason I enjoyed this book so much more than other thrillers I have read recently is because I really cared about Kara, the central character, it mattered to me what happened to her and that kept me rooting for her all the way through the book! Add to that the fact that the book is beautifully written and flows easily, which allows you to concentrate on the story rather than the process of reading and you have a brilliant book At no point did I sense the writer behind the story trying to lead me along a certain path - rather, I felt I was reading a true story, one so real that it couldn't have just been invented, one where I felt I was actually there, observing the events as they happened. It is a great book and I can, without the slightest hesitation, heartily recommend "Dead Wood" to anyone who likes an engaging thriller that will keep you hooked to the very end. I absolutely loved it!" - OM Carey-Jones

"Living in the area of Dundee and being a retired Police officer I could relate to the subplot of the two unsolved murders refererred to. The descriptions of Dundee and the surrounding area are well researched/ Another top tale from a very accomp-lished author with lots of twists and turns. (Well into the book before I identified killer !!!)" - Jim Mollison


I Christie

"As an aficionado of crime fiction set in such Scotttish cities as Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and even St Andrews I was delighted as an exiled Dundonian to chance upon Chris Longmuir's "Dundee Crime Series" of which Dark Wood is a part. Having read all three books of the series in a week I must nominate Dark Wood as my favourite story perhaps of all time. Great characters, thrilling action, high suspense, all make for splendid reading. But faint hearts beware - Mills and Boon this is not! The Dark Wood of the title is Templeton Wood in the outskirts of the city, notorious for the discovery in 1970 and 1971 the bodies of two young women, a grim fact cleverly remarked upon by the author. I have to say that in over seventy years of reading crime novels I find this tale perhaps the most gripping of all, a real page turner. More please, Ms Longmuir!" - I Christie
