By on Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Criminologist Ian Marsh has published his second thriller.

In Gemma Makes Her Mark, the Liverpool Hope University lecturer, who lives in Prescot, tells the tale of a probation officer who uses a sociopathic murderer to exact revenge on her mother.

It is a direct sequel to his 2015 book Murderer: On Your Mark, in turn based on the misdeeds of a real-life serial killer. He updated the setting from early 20th-century New York to 1970s Brighton, England, and its follow-up is set in 1980s Dubrovnik, Croatia.

The blurb to Gemma Makes Her Mark promises an “insightful and disturbing” read that “culminates in a gripping climax set on the Adriatic coastline of Yugoslavia.”

The book is now available in paperback and on Kindle from
