Four a.m. on a wet stretch of the highway: a driver skids out of control. Quickly arriving on the scene, detective Kate Daniels and her partner, Hank Gormley, witness a horrifying display of carnage and mayhem that proves to be one of the worst traffic accidents in Northumberland’s history. But as the casualties mount, they soon realize that not all of the deaths occurred as a result of the accident …
At the same time, on the other side of town, a house goes up in flames and its two inhabitants become charred corpses. Except for the timing, there is no evidence to connect this incident with the traffic accident. But it soon becomes apparent that all is not what it seems, and that Kate and her colleagues are always one step behind a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Note:  Can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Why do you think readers love DCI Kate Daniels?

Although Kate is the senior investigating detective on Northumbria Police’s Murder Investigation Team, she’s also a bit of a maverick who bends the rules on occasions to get the job done. Able to solve crimes using her intellect, not solely relying on high-tech modern methods – CCTV, DNA etc. – she’s also a conflicted individual, torn between her professional ambition and the love of her life. People see her vulnerability and I think they identify with that.

Which of your characters would you like to meet in person and why?

That would have to be Kate . . .
Following her debut in The Murder Wall she was described by one reviewer as: a superb character, and one that we will be meeting again when Hannah’s second novel, Settled Blood, is published later this year. Edgy, stubborn, intensely private, fiercely loyal, a born maverick but still remarkably sensitive to the emotions of the bereaved, the enigmatic Daniels has a promising future both as a police chief and as a literary leading lady.
Kate is her own worst enemy in some ways. On the positive side she cares deeply about others – especially the families of homicide victims – but she puts ‘the job’ above all else to the detriment of her personal life. I’d like to knock some sense into her sometimes but I love writing about her.
