Read full description of the books:
Texas, 1964. Elliott et Clarence sont deux demi-frères nés sous une mauvaise étoile. Après l’assassinat de leur mère, ils ont passé le plus clair de leur adolescence dans des maisons de correction et autres établissements pénitentiaires pour mineurs. Le jour où Earl Sheridan, un psychopathe de la pire espèce, les prend en otages pour échapper à la prison et à la condamnation à mort, ils se retrouvent embarqués dans un périple douloureux et meurtrier. Alors que Sheridan, accompagné des deux adolescents, sème la terreur dans les petites villes américaines bien tranquilles qui jalonnent leur route, une sanglante et terrible partie se met en place entre les trois protagonistes. Loin de se douter de la complexité de celle-ci, la police, lancée à leurs trousses, et en particulier l’inspecteur Cassidy ne sont pas au bout de leurs surprises.

Read information about the authorRoger began his first novel on November 4th, 1987 and did not stop, except for three days when he was going through a divorce from his first wife, until July of 1993. During this time he completed twenty-two novels, most of them in longhand, and accumulated several hundred polite and complimentary rejection letters from many different and varied publishers.
He stopped writing out of sheer frustration and did not start again for eight years.
In the early part of September 2001 he decided to start writing again. This decision was based on the realization that it was the only thing he had ever really wanted to do.
Between August 2001 and January 2002 he wrote three books, the second of which was called ‘Candlemoth’. This was purchased by Orion and published in 2003. ‘Candlemoth’ was translated into German, Dutch and Italian, and has now also been purchased for translation in numerous other languages. The book also secured a nomination on the shortlist for the Crime Writers’ Association Steel Dagger for Best Thriller 2003. His second book, ‘Ghostheart’, was released in 2004, and his third book, ‘A Quiet Vendetta’, was released in August 2005. In 2006 he published ‘City of Lies’, and once again secured a nomination for the CWA Steel Dagger for Best Thriller of that year. His fifth book – ‘A Quiet Belief In Angels’ - was published in August 2006, and in the latter part of the year it was selected for the phenomenally successful British TV equivalent of the Oprah Winfrey Book Club, the Richard and Judy Book Club.
‘A Quiet Belief In Angels’ went on to be shortlisted for the Barry Award for Best British Crime Fiction, the 813 Trophy, the Quebec Booksellers’ Prize, The Europeen Du Point Crime Fiction Prize, and was winner of the Inaugural Prix Roman Noir Nouvel Observateur. It has since been voted Best Thriller of 2009 in The Strand Magazine. The book was also optioned for film, and Roger has recently completed the screenplay for Oscar-winning French director, Olivier Dahan.
Following on from ‘A Quiet Belief In Angels’, Roger released ‘A Simple Act of Violence’, again securing a nomination for Best British Crime Fiction of 2008. In late 2009 he released ‘The Anniversary Man’ to rave reviews.
