The Hardboiled Collective. As a writer of hardboiled crime - yeah, that's another name for crime thrillers if you hadn't heard - I was pleased when approached by book reviewer and author JV Steen of Sons Of Spade to join a group of likeminded authors to help promote and support others in our field.

A Bridge Too Far: from the FOX FIVE Charlie Fox short story collection
Go and live in a cave and get the hell out of my gene pool! I left Zoe Sharp's book off my previous entry in anticipation of doing this one.

No, all I'm going to do here is mention one name in particular. Now I'll probably embarrass Adrian in saying so - he's such a humble guy - but of all the author's I've read and admired, Adrian probably gave me more of an inspirational boost than any.
