Blood Rose Notice in the UK Times

My second Clare Hart thriller, Blood Rose, appears alongside books by Scandinavian crime writers Jo Nesbø, Camilla Läckberg in the UK’s Times newspaper:

Margie Orford’s Blood Rose has an appealing heroine, the Cape Town-based criminal profiler Dr Clare Hart, and a lively, fast-moving plot set in Namibia — probably the first time that the sparsely populated country has featured in crime fiction. In Walvis Bay, the largest port, a serial killer is disposing of vulnerable teenage street-boys. Hart is asked to help, which she does with panache while dealing with her own emotional see-saws. Good dialogue and unfamiliar characters.
