This August we are publishing two new books through our Moth crime imprint: Hard Wired, the winning novel of our Northern Crime Competition, by Leeds writer Kath McKay; and Turning Blue, the first crime novel by acclaimed novelist Benjamin Myers, who lives in West Yorkshire.
Hard Wired is a suspenseful stand-alone novel which launches Kath McKay as a new voice in crime. It features Charlie, an accidental detective who is drawn into solving the murder of her best friend’s son in 1990s Newcastle upon Tyne.
In Turning Blue Benjamin Myers has created a new genre in crime fiction, folk crime, and introduces us to DS Brindle, a detective from the elite police department Cold Storage, and his sidekick, journalist Roddy Mace. Together they unlock a horrific network of crime and abuse in a Yorkshire hamlet.
Both books launch in August 2016.
