The Cutting Season
The Cutting Season: (Quick Reads 2022) | M. W. Craven
5 posts | 4 read
Poe's just hanging around on a Saturday afternoon... Dangling from a hook in a meat packing plant isn't how Detective Sergeant Washington Poe wants to spend his weekend. He's been punched and kicked and threatened, and when a contract killer arrives it seems things are about to go from bad to worse. He goes by the name of the Pale Man and he and his straight-edged razor have been feared all over London for twenty years. But Poe knows two things the Pale Man doesn't. Although it might seem like a hopeless situation, Poe has planned to be here all along. More importantly, a nerdy, computer whizz-kid called Tilly Bradshaw is watching his back. And now things are about to get interesting . . . _______________ This is a short story, not a full-length novel. _______________ Praise for M W Craven: 'I've been following M.W. Craven's Poe/Tilly series from the very beginning, and it just gets better and better. Dead Ground is a fast-paced crime novel with as many twists and turns as a country lane. I can't wait for the next one.' Peter Robinson 'Dead Ground is both entertaining and engaging with great characters and storyline. I loved this first dip into the world of Tilly and Poe!' BA Paris 'A brutal and thrilling page turner' Natasha Harding, The Sun 'A thrilling curtain raiser for what looks set to be a great new series' Mick Herron 'One of the most engaging teams in crime fiction' Daily Mail 'A powerful thriller from an explosive new talent. Tightly plotted, and not for the faint hearted!' David Mark 'A gripping start to a much anticipated new series' Vaseem Khan 'Satisfyingly twisty and clever and the flashes of humour work well to offer the reader respite from the thrill of the read' Michael J. Malone 'Nothing you've ever read will prepare you for the utterly unique Washington Poe' Keith Nixon 'Beware if you pick up a book by M.W. Craven. Your life will no longer belong to you. He will hold you spellbound. Linda's Book Bag 'Craven's understanding of the criminal world is obvious in this cracking read' Woman's Weekly 'Breath-taking' Random Things Through My Letterbox '5 Stars... another fantastic literary experience and a welcome addition to the already brilliant Poe and Tilly series' Female First 'An explosive plot, slippery twists and my fave new crime-busting duo...Fantastic!'

A fun short story in the Poe and Tilly Series. Nothing crazy but Poe‘s usual shenanigans. 😊🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 #20in4

Such a good book for a Quickread. They are brilliant for trying out new authors and this was great. I love the character writing in this especially Tilly and it was just right for the length of the story. I will certainly be checking out more books by this author.

And another new author. That‘s what I love about quick reads though. Really enjoyed this book. Very clever story with great characters. Would make a great tv series
