One week into the 'life' of John Caul

It's a curious thing publishing a book. The pleasure of seeing the pre-orders come in is balanced by the nervousness about what will happen when the book is in the wild. Will people buy it? Will they like it if they do? To my shame, over the week that Rakehell has been on sale (right here) I've become a bit of a Kindle Unlimited Page Reads watcher. I know that people buy books and don't read them immediately. I have something (ahem) of a to be read pile myself... but KU page reads are incontrovertible proof of pages being read.

He doesn’t mention the other kills, those of his own initiative. Highly-trained, finely-honed and used hard, Stoner now seeks not to kill as he investigates underworld activities for official intelligence agencies, an entirely deniable operative in sleazy situations. This is one of those books that rather fries the brain, but in a good way. The style of writing is very free flowing wit
