Urban Legends: thrills and wine at Blackwell's Edinburgh

26th March 2015 sees the publication of the third and final book in my Forbidden Spaces trilogy: Urban Legends.

A group of story-tellers are disappearing one by one. A young woman is haunted by her past. A serial killer has one target he is desperate to hunt down. 
Veerle is trying to lie low, to live as 'normal' a life as she possibly can. But when you've thwarted a serial killer, it's hard to do this. Especially when he wants revenge...

Urban Legends sees the return of the terrifying killer who calls himself De Jager - The Hunter. It also has some of the most atmospheric and thrilling locations of the trilogy. Forbidden Spaces has a theme of urban exploration running through it. In Silent Saturday Veerle and her friend Kris explored opulent villas whose expat owners were away. In Demons of Ghent the action moved up to the high points of an ancient city - the towers, battlements and rooftops. Urban Legends takes us to some of the murkiest, most dangerous urbex locations of all, as Veerle is forced to confront a brutal murderer with a personal vendetta against her, and try to uncover the real truth of what she saw on Silent Saturday ten years ago.

To celebrate the publication of Urban Legends, I'll be at Blackwell's Bookshop in Edinburgh on Tuesday 24th March, talking to fellow author Susy McPhee (Husbands and Lies, The Runaway Wife, Back to You) about the inspiration for the book, the challenges and thrills of researching the real-life locations, and why urban legends are so compelling. There will be wine too, to steady our nerves while contemplating some of my scariest settings and most brutal confrontations ever!
