‘The Devil You Know’ – My New Thriller Published!

The Devil You Know


After being beset with delays I can finally say that my new thriller The Devil You Know has been published and is available from Amazon as a print book and a Kindle. Next will be stocking in major bookstores but that takes a little longer, apparently.

So what’s The Devil You Know all about?

It’s a contemporary thriller set in Scotland and the main location for most of the action is an uninhabited island. Uninhabited for a very good reason. Or a very bad reason.

We live in a time of (relative) peace, but not so long ago that wasn’t the case. Our governments have often done questionable things in war-time that get brushed under the carpet. Other times they rear back up and bite us on the arse. Read the book to find out which case applies here!

This book has an unlikely hero.

You probably won’t take to him initially. Not many people do. In fact he’s been despised since birth simply for his appearance and in school he was voted the Pope of Fools; a term taken from a Victor Hugo novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and in my book his award was for the ugliest boy in school.

You won’t see many marches supporting people who look like him. Not a lot of social media sympathy or attention either. Some regimes have declared his type to be sub-human in the past.

So, it’s fair to say that he’s not a huge fan of the human race nor is he a very nice person.

But do you believe that light can come from darkness?

Sometimes bad people do good things and supposedly good people do bad things.

It’s not always obvious who we can trust and in this fast-paced thriller those lines become blurred more than once.

I hope you enjoy this Scottish adventure and let me know what you think of it!

I’m presently working on the third Ridge Walker novel in the series and so if you’d like to be a beta-reader and get free editions of all my future novels then drop me an email at info@alexbreckbooks.com. All I would ask is that you give me an honest review.

Here’s a couple of links to the paperback and kindle version for Amazon here in the UK. I’m sure the technology will re-direct you to the Amazon sites of whatever other country you happen to be living in.

Remember – we’re stronger by what unites us than what divides us right?
