A new serial killer chiller set in Hemel Hempstead and Tring is out this week.

Dave Sivers, 67, of Pitstone, author of Aylesbury-based 'Archer and Baines' crime series, is releasing his new crime fiction novel, 'In Ink', on Friday, May 15.

He said: "I have been writing a series of five books set in Aylesbury and the new one is a new set of characters, based in Hemel Hempstead and Tring.

"It is a serial killer story and a body is found outside a church in Tring, but what really disturbs DI Nathan Quarrel is the Tarot card motif adorning the body: The Fool.

"Just 24 hours later, another body turns up. A different card, but from the same pack.

"Unless Quarrel can decipher the meaning behind the cards and the connection between the victims, more will follow in a twisted agenda of abduction, pain and death.

"The story follows the investigation and also the characters in the book, I like the reader to get to know the characters and there will be twists.

"I have been writing since I was six, that's when I wrote my first book, I stole the plot from a children's book. I obviously know about plagiarism now!

"I like to set the stories local to me, I got more into crime and I enjoy writing about it, I hope the readers like the latest book."

The 67-year-old has been writing all his life. His books include the popular crime series featuring the Aylesbury Vale detectives, DI Lizzie Archer and DS Dan Baines. The Scars Beneath the Soul and Dead in Deep Water were both top three bestsellers in the Amazon Kindle Serial Killers chart.

Dave is a founder of the annual BeaconLit festival of books and writing.

The book will be out on paperbook and Kindle e-book, or more information about Dave visit: www.davesivers.co.uk.
