Everyone has secrets.
Some more deadly than others.
"A fiendishly intricate and entertaining work of New Mexico crime. A glimpse through the eyes of four points of view gives this dark page-turner an extra layer as we circle closer and closer to an ice-cold killer."
Some fail. Some never fit in. Some vent a rage against the foulest of humanity.
"Northwest Area Command is bursting with activity as a serial killer is on the loose. A non-stop express ride, frantic, sensitive and utterly refreshing."

Lies hurt. Truth kills.
"Spread thick with winter chill, Stibbe delivers a richly textured, breathtaking novel that gives us an insight into the dark places of the psyche. Some secrets can never be buried."


 If chiller-killer-thrillers and police procedurals are your crime fiction of choice, then these books are for you.

The truth is dead and buried. Or is it?
“A crisp, confident and roundly satisfying novel, the characters simply sparkle with life. This is a meaty police procedural I couldn’t put down.” 

Two best friends. One deadly secret.
​"If there is a crime fan who hasn't discovered the Detective Temeke series yet, go and read them all immediately. I love books with that extra-special something, where the author puts you at every scene and doesn't let go until the last heart-pumping chapter."
