‘Watch Me’ by James Carol

Published by Faber & Faber,
7 August 2014.
ISBN: 978-0-571-30276-5

This is the third Jefferson Winter book, all stand alone.

Jefferson Winter is a bedraggled unkempt former FBI profiler, who now freelances traveling the world hunting serial killers. His long grey hair and bad taste in clothing mask a mind that understands how serial killers minds works, why, because his works in the same way.

Sam Galloway died slow, and he died hard. His death was completely at odds with the way he lived, and completely at odds with the sort of death he should have had.

The above first two sentences had me, and the book thereafter didn’t disappoint. The mismatch of characters works so well, the twists have your head spinning whist all the time rooting for the good guys. The ends a cliff hanger.

Has Jefferson Winter taken on too much this time?
Reviewer: Nicky Cooper Brown

James Carol was born in Scotland and moved to England in the early-eighties. At various times he has worked as a guitarist, sound engineer, guitar tutor, journalist, and a horse riding instructor.When he's not writing, James spends his time training horses and riders. An accomplished guitarist, he relaxes by writing and recording music. He lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and two children.

Nicky Cooper Brown came late to this game we call writing. Growing up, up North, she was always praised for her talents with her hands, rather than her mind, she harboured an artistic flair often drawing and painting into the night. It wasn't until she moved south to the Beautiful picturesque New Forest that she took pen to paper so to speak. Now Nicky enjoys writing short stories and articles and has a funny and light hearted style, but when it comes to her novels she displays a darker side and a taste for psychological thrillers.
