For one week, and one week only, my seaside thriller Circ (collaboratively written with an amazing international crew of
savages authors) is available for free on Kindle! Here! Or, if you happen to be in the UK, you can grab it here!
If you’ve only joined the J’adore community recently, you can read all about how this book came to be under the Ten to One tag. If you’re already in the know and haven’t had a chance to buy a copy, I hope you’ll take this opportunity to pop over and grab one (did I mention it was free?!).
Circ was an incredibly fun book to write, and I can’t begin to tell you how much I learned about sword swallowing, Romanian history, meat processing, modern art, and close quarters hand to hand combat in the process. Oh, and did I mention fire? I studied everything from how one can swallow it safely, to how long it takes to get untied from a chair in a room engulfed in flames, to what a death from arson can do to a community. Not many of my other projects have pushed me to research such diverse topics, but it was all for the best. I only hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed putting all the pieces together…
Razvan Popescu lives in a flat overlooking the seaside town of Skegness. He keeps himself to himself and few know the man at all. Even fewer know his past, which he has tried to leave behind in the Romanian woods.
But when a tattooed stranger is found murdered on the beach, it is clear that past has followed him to this tacky seaside town. As a battle erupts within the criminal fraternity, dark forces gather around the town and Popescu’s acquaintances find themselves dragged into a world of violence, fire and fairy tales.
One thing is certain: the circus has come to town.
