    I came across the first book in the Diane Fallon series at a book sale. After I read it I looked to see if there were more and was so happy to find 8 more to be exact. I LOVED this series and was sad when I read the last one. They kept me on the edge of my seat and couldn’t put them down! Any chance there may be any more?

    I have read and re-read all your novels since I discovered one grave too many. I unfortunately read far too quickly , having done a speed reading course way too many years ago. As such I learn something new each time I read anything you have written. Don’t stop writing. Regards SarahB
