Today I have the lovely Katerina on my blog to talk about her new Book The Angel,
Q) Can you tell us a little bit about your new Book: The Angel Katerina?
We get to see more of our two police officers’ private life, not all of it good. Imogen Grey is forced to choose between her job and her love life. Adrian Miles finds out more about his past and why trouble seems to follow him around. They investigate a dead body found in a disused signal box which leads to the arrest of a young man. As Imogen delves deeper into the she begins to doubt his guilt.
Q) What inspired you to start writing and why?
I have always loved books and stories, including Tv and movies. I grew up watching Hitchcock movies and reading Agatha Christies Poirot books. I started writing because I wanted something to do while I was home with my toddler. I started writing crime because I love mysteries.
Q) Out of all your books which one did you enjoy writing the most?
The next one. The truth is I am always obsessed with what comes next. I think the Teacher was probably the one I enjoyed writing the most because I learned so much about my own writing style and what I enjoyed writing. Also, where I met Miles and Grey and started this amazing journey.
Q) Who are your favourite authors that you love to read?
I don’t read as much as I should but I like to read Karin Slaughter and Mark Billingham’s books. I also really enjoy the Diana Gabaldon outlander books.
Q) Can you describe The Angel in 10 words?
Tall dark and handsome stuck in prison with bad food.
The Angel is out on 21st September!
If you haven’t discovered Katerina’s books before.. you must!
Today I am on the blog tour for Katerina Diamond’s debut novel The Teacher. I was so thankful when the lovely Helena from Avon Books asked me to be part of this blog tour.. I love a good thriller book that keeps me hooked from the go. which is exactly what The Teacher did.
The Teacher is not for the faint hearted, with graphic descriptions of the killings, if your squeamish then this book may not be your taste.
What is The Teacher all about your asking? The body of the head teacher of an exclusive Devon school is found hanging from the rafters in the assembly hall. . .Hours earlier he had received a package and only he understood the silent message it conveyed. It meant the end.
As Exeter suffers a rising count of terrible and gruesome deaths, troubled DS Imogen Grey and Adrian Miles must solve this case and make their city safe again…
I really enjoyed The Teacher very much, Following DS Grey and Miles trying to solve the case was good, you get to know them as people but also while on the job trying to solve the case. The Chapters flip from the present but also to the past as you the reader try to figure out who would kill all these people and why. A network of corruption, lies and exploitation tests DS Grey and Miles with who they can trust before it can be too late…
The Teacher is definitely the most graphic thriller book I’ve read, it keeps you guessing throughout, if you can let the gruesome details of the murders not make you sick then you really need to pick this book up and give it a read!
I cannot wait to see what Katerina has her characters DS Grey and Miles up to next!
Katerina Diamond has written a terrifying Psychological thriller which will keep the reader hooked until the very end.
I Highly recommend The Teacher to anyone, I’m giving 4 Stars for the best gruesome psychological thriller this year!
Do You Dare To Read The Teacher?
