Dear readers,

First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit my website. As you will have no doubt discovered, this site (for the time being) is mostly dedicated to my first full length thriller, A GIFT TO DIE FOR.

Although my health is not particularly good these days (I like to blame the medication), it is fairly stable at the moment. And since A GIFT TO DIE FOR is now out of print, I have decided to have it published as an eBook. The good news (for me, at least) is that I have several as-yet unpublished works of fiction taking up space on my computers, including several short stories and another full-length thriller called PAST SINS. If all goes well I intend turning most, if not all of them, into eBooks which can be downloaded from Amazon, Apple, and suchlike.

I began writing A GIFT TO DIE FOR in my spare time. It was a bit of a busman's holiday really, because at the time I was also writing for a couple of computer magazines. A GIFT TO DIE FOR took approximately one year to write, although it kept me busy one way or another for around 18 months.

I am all in favour of readers contacting me after they have read the book. Most, if not all, have said that it was worth the wait. They may of course be too polite to say anything else. The book in paperback form contains 245-pages, twenty terrifying chapters, and around 93,000 words in total. Happily, the eBook counterpart is just as long and many pounds and/or dollars cheaper than the original.

Happy reading!

Best wishes,
David Cook.
