Murder Most Vile

Murder Most Vile, the ninth book the the Langham and Dupré series, is out now from Severn House.

It was not I, but rage, did this vile murder; Yet I, and not my rage, must answer it.” – Thomas Heywood.

April, 1957. When Donald Langham is approached by a retired businessman to find his artist son, what starts as a simple missing persons case soon turns to murder as a body is discovered in a disused warehouse.

While investigating the killing, Langham’s business partner Ralph Ryland must confront his past as a Mosley-ite Blackshirt in the Thirties. In the course of their search for the murderer, Ralph is kidnapped by a gangland boss and Langham must not only attempt to save his friend’s life, but track down a killer who strikes not once but three times…

Murder Most Vile combines a traditional whodunnit mystery with gripping suspense and a thrilling dénouement.

    Love this series, and everything you write! I’m in the US near Chicago. The WorldCon/ChicCon site is listing an “Eric Brown” as a registrant for the con here in September–are you planning to be there or is it someone else? Thank you, Jeff.

    • Hi Jeff, Many thanks for your kind words – much appreciated. Sadly, the Eric Brown who’ll be attending the con is not me: maybe it’s Eric S. brown, the zombie writer… Well, he isn’t a zombie, but writes a lot of zombie fiction. Have a great time, and if you come across Mr Brown, say Hi to him form me. Cheers!
