DCI Alex Warren and his team are given the challenging task of discovering his killer. They investigate the numerous people Stevenson has harmed and their enquiries reveal a host of related crimes, motivated by sex and greed. As the body count starts to rise, they struggle to close the case before more lives are lost. Review extracts tight cast of interesting characters Mr. Abrams does a great job of bringing the gritty streets of Glasgow to life I found it so hard to stop reading that I missed my regular Tuesday TV Show This book is an intriguing escape. It was dark but not too dark. As a reader I enjoyed every twist and turn.. The setting is made authentic not only by the author's Glasgow upbringing but his ability to visualize the grey, gloomy Scottish November that is a perfect setting for this whodunnit The characters were great. The reason for the murder was believable. I can see it happening in real life. In fact, I am sure it has.
Read information about the author
Having the background of a successful career in commerce and finance, Zach Abrams has spent many years writing reports, letters and presentations and it's only fairly recently he started writing novels. "It's a more honourable type of fiction," he declares.
His first novel 'Ring Fenced' was published in November 2011. This is a crime story with a difference, following one man's obsession with power and control.
After this he collaborated with Elly Grant to produce 'Twists and Turns' a book of short stories.
Zach's next novel, 'Made a Killing', is the first book in the Alex Warren series. It follows the investigation after the killing of a much hated criminal where an elephant tusk was used as the murder weapon was. This has been followed by 'A Measure of Trouble' where Alex's team are seeking the murderer of a CEO killed within the cask room of his whisky distillery. The third was published on 31 March 2015, 'Written to Death,' deals with a mysterious death during a writers' group meeting. - These are fast moving, gripping novels set in the tough crime-ridden streets of Glasgow.
Zach's quirky thriller, 'Source; Greed, Power, Revenge, or is it Economic Terrorism' has three investigative journalists travelling across the UK, Spain and France as they research corruption and sabotage in the banking sector while trying to cope with their own fraught personal lives.
Alike his central character in 'Ring Fenced,' (Bemjamin Short), Zach Abrams completed his education in Scotland and went on to a career in accountancy, business and finance. He is married with two children. He plays no instruments but has an eclectic taste in music, although not as obsessive as Benjamin. Unlike Benjamin, he does not maintain mistresses, write pornography and (sadly) he does not have ownership of such a company. He is not a sociopath (at least by his own reckoning) and all versions of his life are aware of and freely communicate with each other.
More in keeping with 'Alex Warren', Zach was raised in Glasgow and has spent many years working in Central Scotland.
