Back in 2010 Conrad Williams, one of the favorite writers around this blog, took a plunge into crime fiction with “Blonde on a Stick”, a novel published by Max Crime. This year, Conrad Williams’ “Blonde on a Stick” is revamped and saw the light of print again last week under the title “Dust and Desire”, published by Titan Books. Even more, “Dust and Desire” will be followed next year by “Sonata of the Dead” in what has become the Joel Sorrell series. But without getting ahead of myself, first things first, if you fancy a copy of Conrad Williams’ “Dust and Desire” you have a chance of grabbing one of the ten free copies offered through a contest on Goodreads. The giveaway is open to the US and UK residents and ends on November, 18th.
The Four-Year-Old, an extraordinary killer, has arrived in London, hell-bent on destruction… PI Joel Sorrell is approached by the mysterious Kara Geenan, who is desperate to find her missing brother. Joel takes on the case but almost immediately, an attempt is made on his life. The body count increases. And then Kara vanishes too… as those close to Joel are sucked into his nightmare, he realizes he must track down the killer if he is to halt a grisly masterplan – even if it means sacrificing his own life.
