Nov­el­ist set for more city crime tales

Evening Times - - NEWS -

A CRIME nov­el­ist RJ Mitchell has signed a book deal for the fifth in the award nom­i­nated DS Thor­ough­good crime se­ries based on his ex­pe­ri­ences as a Glas­gow cop.

The former Evening Times sports re­porter has penned a deal with MJ Pub­lish­ing for fol­low up, The Blood Acre to pop­u­lar novel The Shift.

Mitchell set a WHSmith Scot­tish tour record with a stag­ger­ing 1388 sales on his ‘The Shadow of Fear' tour in 2018.

He will again travel to Glas­gow later this year as part of a 30-date tour in Scotland.

He said: “As usual the ac­tion will be mainly cen­tred in Glas­gow and draw from my ex­pe­ri­ences as a cop but this time we will also be heading south.

“Nat­u­rally Thor­ough­good's love life will be a roller­coaster of re­jec­tion and rekin­dling of old flames and that doesn't even scrape the sur­face.”
