    It's amazing how many crime writers live in Sussex .....is it something in the water?
    We've just discovered that best-selling crime writer @helenfields_author lives nearby, and she has kindly agreed to stop by later in April to sign and name dedicate copies of her hard-hitting new thriller PROFILE K.
    This is a must-read for fans of gritty, high-impact crime, it's a dark, terrifying journey into the mind of a psychopath that will keep you riveted until the very last page.
    Follow the link or QR code to pre-order on our website, add the names for dedication in ORDER NOTES.
    PROFILE K is released in hardback at £16.99 on April 25th. Copies will ship / be ready for collection after this date. #sussexcrimewriters #thrillers #profilek @avonbooksuk @harpercollins
