Crime Fiction Alphabet

This week is the letter...  D

Damien Seaman is a new author from the UK. His first book 'The Killing of Emma Gross' was a riveting read! Historical fiction, based on the true story of notorious German serial killer, Peter Kurten, and the unsolved murder of Dusseldorf prostitute Emma Gross, it is set in 1929 Dusseldorf, Germany. Click here for my recent review.

Damien is an interesting character himself. He has a degree in Modern History from Oxford, has worked as a journalist, parliamentary assistant, financial analyst and security guard. You can read lots of interesting articles on Damien's blog here. And be sure to read the Author Conversation between Damien and William Ryan here (part 1) and here (part 2) over at Mystery Tribune.

This book is an ebook published by Blasted Heath
