  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 January #1
    Thomas' gritty first novel centers on a murder investigation in Yorkshire, England. Detective Sergeant Adam Tyler is languishing in the Cold Case Review Unit when the discovery of the skeleton of a financier who has been missing for six years offers him the opportunity to prove himself. Except for this one thing: the most likely suspect happens to be someone with whom Tyler recently had a fling. It also doesn't help that his relationship with his fellow officers is strained, at best. Working with another outsider looking for acceptance, Muslim constable Amina Rabbani, Tyler must deal with additional complications, including a mysterious woman with dementia who is apparently being threatened and someone in the shadows who wants the world to burn. Tyler and Rabbani make an intriguing team, and Thomas shows a flair for vivid imagery in this twisty, very dark procedural that one hopes is the launch of a series. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

Russ Thomas grew up in the 80s reading anything he could get his hands on, writing stories, watching television and playing videogames: in short, anything that avoided the Great Outdoors. He spent five years trying to master the Electronic Organ and another five learning Spanish. It didn't take him too long to realize he'd be better off sticking to the writing.

After a few 'proper' jobs (among them: pot-washer. optician's receptionist, supermarket warehouse operative, call-center telephonist and storage salesman) he discovered the joys of bookselling, where he could talk to people about books all day. Now a full-time writer, he also teaches creative writing classes and mentors new authors. Firewatching is his first novel.
