  1. Can I just say that I am really enjoying your books. I have just started the third book and living in Dunbar can relate to the places around East. Lothian. Keep up the great stories.

  2. Do you have any idea when your ‘Come into my arms (supernature book 2)’ will be released, as I can’t wait to get stuck into it after reading ‘Shot through the heart’? 🙂

    1. Hi Nicola –

      Erm. Glad you loved SHOT THROUGH THE HEART… Not sure when book 2 will be done as the sales for book 1 have been a bit disappointing, shall we say. I’m going to repurpose CRASH INTO MY ARMS from being a police procedural with vampires to just a police procedural.

      Sorry to disappoint but writing a book is a big commitment and I’m not feeling motivated to do any more vampires or zombies as book 2 is going to be. Might change in the near future, you never know.

  3. Loved shot through the heart. I was wondering if you were planning on continuing with Marks story. I don’t want it to end. Besides, that was one of the first of your books that I’ve read. Brilliant.

    1. Cheers Natasha. Glad you enjoyed it. No immediate plans to do a sequel due to poor sales on that one. Maybe it’s starting to find an audience I don’t know. I’ll see how things are in the next few months – got some ideas for a sequel, but I’m pretty focused on crime just now. Ed

  4. As a non Kindle user I have enjoyed reading Cullen 1-4 in paperback however as an old school lover of physical books with a distrust of the electronic format I am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to read Cullen 5. Could you please let me know when I can expect to see a paper version of ‘Bottleneck’? Keep the words flowing and the readers hooked.

  5. Ed, I just finished Ghost in the Machine and posted my review on Amazon and Goodreads. I enjoyed it tremendously and am looking forward to reading the rest in the series. Your site is great since it lets us know all the work you have available. I signed up for your newsletter too so I can keep up with what’s coming out.

    1. Hi Jeni – check out the Current Projects page to see what’s next. SNARED is out end of April and the next Cullen should be late June. Couple of other things will be out second half of the year, if I’m lucky…

  6. Hi, Ed

    Same post as Rob. Have just read Cullen 1-7 and expected ‘Heroes and Villains’ to appear on the
    Kindle site. Disappointment doesn’t begin to cover it. Hopefully, it will be published soon? Can hardly wait, having been totally sucked in to the sometimes hapless DS Cullen. (Thank goodness he got promoted!). And, hopefully, Bain will get some sort of comeuppance. I really don’t like him. (See what I mean about getting sucked in?). Thanks for the continued enjoyment of your writing. I’m off now to start another of your series.


    1. Hi Maureen,

      Sadly, I’ve been sidetracked with a few other things so it won’t be out for a good few months now (not even started it, to be honest). I’m working on the second Craig Hunter book just now, which should be out in the next month or so. It’s got some Cullen in it, like the first one does. It’ll be May or June before the eight Cullen book, I reckon.

      Hope you enjoy the other books and I’m really pleased you like the Cullen books so much!


  7. Loved all the Cullen books and whilst waiting for the eighth book I’ve read Snared and Missing and I loved them too. Can’t wait for the next in all three series. I live in northern Northumberland and visit Edinburgh and the Lothians quite frequently so I can relate to a lot of the places in the books. Keep up the good work

    1. Thanks Liz. Really appreciate the note. Just finishing the second Hunter book just now which features your neck of the woods a little bit. More news on Vicky Dodds soon — hope you dip your toes into the Fenchurch books soon. Ed

    1. Hi Linda,
      Glad you enjoyed it! There’ll be some news on that very soon. Got a lot of plates spinning just now, but there will definitely be a second Dodds book. Either late this year or early next.

  8. Hi Ed.
    I downloaded DI Fenchurch series on kindle for myself. Somehow I got a free download on audible fo book one. My 14 year old son started listening on audible, he’s registered blind. So prefers audio. He listened before I started reading. He loved the book so much I paid for the remaining books in the series. He loved the books. He listened to them one after the other. I’ve finished two books so far. I presume there are only three? He tried to tell me the ending. Which sounds like there are only three books. I managed to stop him. Although he has hinted heavily what happens.
    Secondly are all of your books on audible? He’s a big fan. I’m enjoying them too. Something to discuss with him too.
