"Fans of the PBS series Prime Suspect or of hot Scottish writer Ian Rankin shouldn't wait to check out this debut mystery.... The Dead Sit Round in a Ring will surely be one of the best mysteries of the summer, probably of the year."
- Rocky Mountain News The Dead Sit Round in a Ring, the first book in this highly acclaimed series, received rave reviews from critics everywhere, and this new Detective Stella Mooney novel is equally stunning. Once she had been beautiful. Now she was eight days dead. Janis Parker - young, successful, and glamorous - had shared her upscale Notting Hill apartment with roommate Stephanie James. But now Janis is dead, and Stephanie has disappeared, and the only thing that the police know for sure is that someone wanted Janis to be very, very dead - she was stabbed at least fifty time. Heading up the investigation is Detective Stella Mooney - smart, brash, and fierce on the outside, but just a little shaky on the inside. She soon has her first suspect in the shape of Mark Ross, Stephanie's boyfriend. (And speaking of boyfriends, Stella seems to have two at the moment. One of them has got to go - but which one?) Stella soon realizes that she and her team are looking for that most dangerous of creatures, a killer who hunts to satisfy a horrible appetite. But the truth turns out to be even more terrifying.... Nothing Like the Night is top-notch suspense.
David Lawrence, in addition to being a talented novelist, is also an acclaimed poet and highly successful scriptwriter. The Dead Sit Round in a Ring was his first Detective Stella Mooney novel; Nothing Like the Night is the second. The author lives in southwest London and is hard at work on the next book in the series, which Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Minotaur will publish next year.
