After seven years, a new edition of my bestselling crime thriller The Mentor is out.
With a new cover and a brand-new translation in British English, the first book in the Detective Eric Shaw Trilogy is finally available for you to read.

What if someone you love is a serial killer?

The Mentor is a crime/psychological thriller set in London whose main character is DCI Eric Shaw, a Scotland Yard forensic team chief who investigates a series of murders that seem related to a cold case involving a person he cares for.
The border between investigation and crime becomes blurred in a story that isn’t exactly about finding the culprit, but rather observing how the main character decides to react to his shocking findings.

You can download the ebook version or purchase one of the print editions ( paperback and hardcover) directly from your favourite online store around the world.
A complete list of links is available on the website dedicated to the trilogy:

The price starts from £3.99/$4.99/€4.99 for the ebook edition.

You can also order it at your favourite Waterstones (UK) and Barnes & Noble (USA) bricks-and-mortar store.

Official description of The Mentor.

Twenty years ago Eric saved her.
Who will save him now?

DCI Eric Shaw, leading a forensic team at Scotland Yard, together with DI Miriam Leroux from a Murder Investigation Team, is investigating the death of a known offender. Killed by two gunshots: one to his neck, execution style, but preceded by another to his groin, implying a more personal motive.
Shaw’s attention at work is often distracted by a young forensic investigator, Adele Pennington, who is a beautiful woman over two decades his junior. However, his attraction to her is unreciprocated.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the London police, an anonymous blog describes the details of a very similar crime. The author of the blog signs herself as Mina, like one of the victims in a case Shaw investigated many years ago.

Meet DCI Eric Shaw . . . and his pupil.

It will be published on 28 February 2023.
