Welcome to my latest Showcase Sunday post – Inspired by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea.
Please also check out the other Showcase Sunday posts at Books, Biscuits and Tea blog
These posts, each first Sunday of the month, showcase the books I’ve bought, begged, borrowed or won (I draw the line at stolen!) during the previous month. I’ll try to mention everyone that appears in the blog, in a tweet when I publish the post, but I apologise in advance to anyone I’ve forgotten.
So here we go:

I attended a crime panel event in Wigan and was lucky enough to meet author Leigh Russell and have my copy of Stop Dead signed.
