UNHOLY REVENGE was my debut novel in the genre of ‘serial killer and police procedural’. Set in the small market town of Frodsham, Cheshire. I chose Frodsham because I lived there for twenty years before moving four miles away to Helsby, and was familiar with the surrounding areas.
Serial killer novels and films are often set, within large cities, so I wondered how a small market town might react to serial killer on the loose. Especially a close-knit one like Frodsham, which is a small market town in Chester. A place and lived in for many years.
I wondered what would happen when the body count starts to add up and why is one particular family targeted?
Did killer the live amongst the other terrified residents, or did they sneak into the town to do their killing?
