Don't Look For Me launch, and some reviews

Belatedly posting some pics from the Don't Look For Me launch evening at Waterstones.

It was a really good night, with a great turnout even though there was competition elsewhere in town from Stuart MacBride and Chris Brookmyre. Neil Broadfoot did a fantastic job on the questions.

The new book has picked up some nice reviews so far:

"Another gripping release from Mason Cross in what was already an excellent series."

- Keith Nixon, Crime Fiction Lover

"This fourth Carter Blake book is a well-plotted and tension-filled tale, delivering more twists and turns than the Hampton Court maze and is packed with memorably drawn characters"

"If you're a thriller fan who packs a summer blockbuster as a holiday read then don't leave home without this."

- Peterborough Telegraph

"Mason Cross has succeeded yet again in delivering that pace and drive and character and story all in one neat package that sweeps you up and carries you along for the duration, never allowing you back down until you are sated by the ending and wishing you could go back and start all over again. A five star read."

Next up... Crimefest, where I'm looking forward to appearing on a couple of panels and particularly doing a drinks reception with two of my very favourite Steves: Mosby and Cavanagh.

Don't Look For Me - publication day

The fourth Carter Blake book: Don't Look For Me is published today in the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. You can get it in all formats from the usual places - links below for your preferred online book emporium.

The advance reviews have been fantastic, and Simon Kernick says it's "A fast-paced, high octane thriller".

I hope you like it too - if you do, I'd love it if you could take a couple of minutes to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads.
You can also let me know on Twitter or Facebook what you thought of it, and since it's being released at this time of year, you can let me know if you find the hidden Easter egg...

Trade paperback (large format)



Don't look for me.

It was a simple instruction. And for six long years Carter Blake kept his word and didn't search for the woman he once loved. But now someone else is looking for her.

He'll come for you.

Trenton Gage is a hitman with a talent for finding people - dead or alive. His next job is to track down a woman who's on the run, who is harbouring a secret many will kill for.
Both men are hunting the same person. The question is, who will find her first?
