Luton born author, Melanie Comley, has published her crime thriller, Impeding Justice, in ebook format.
Impeding Justice features feisty new BritCop, DI Lorne Simpkins in a gritty crime novel set in London. After The Unicorn kills her partner, Lorne knows if she doesn't bring the underworld criminal to justice soon, she will be his next target. It's a race against time, she has a 24 hour deadline to meet before her kidnapped daughter is used as a human bomb by the Unicorn. Can Lorne track the criminal down before it's too late...
Mel Comley left her job as a store manager in Worcester and moved to France nine years ago despite never having set foot in the country before. She renovated a French property, decorating 22 rooms in six months.
Renovation completed, she began to follow her dream of becoming a writer. After completing a creative writing course she penned a romance which was a near-miss with Mills & Boon. Then she decided to turn her hand to crime writing and DI Lorne Simpkins was born.
Impeding Justice is the first in a series of novels featuring Lorne Simpkins. The book has gained a Gold Star on the writer's site, Authonomy, with a Harper Collins editor saying, "It keeps the reader focussed on the dramatic interest of the story."
One of Mel's biggest influences in James Patterson and she hopes she has achieved her aim of making Lorne as memorable as his ‘Alex Cross’.
Impeding Justice has reached number 37 in the Amazon Kindle chart and Mel hopes it will be available in print in the near future. She is currently finishing the sequel which should be completed in the new year.
In her spare time, Mel loves pottering in her garden which has, for the past few years, won a local award. She also enjoys painting and walking her dogs.
