Killing Time by Richard Holland

NEW paperback from a LOCAL AUTHOR in Melton Mowbray with his first novel: When pensioner William Reynolds is found brutally murdered, the investigation digs into a gang whose criminal past appears to be catching up with them. 

Sentences have been served but not all wounds have healed. With a group of suspects eager to keep their secrets buried, nobody is safe, all of them are hiding something, and one way or another everybody is running out of time.

Born in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire in 1980. Richard graduated from the Open University in Milton Keynes, and has worked for Travis Perkins for 18 years.

His first crime novel; Killing Time is currently being published with Troubador, following its completion after Richard was furloughed from work in March, and as the coronavirus pandemic took hold. It's his first venture into the world of writing; after the premise for the book came during a flight from China, where he made notes for what became Killing Time.

Richard is married to his wife Nicola, and has 2 children; Alex & Dominic. Richard also likes to keep fit, taking part in the Windsor Triathlon in 2019 for Macmillan cancer support, as well as the Woburn Triathlon, several half marathons and the 40th London Marathon, which became virtual, to coincide with his 40th birthday.

His second novel; Last Man Standing, is underway and is expected to progress well through the winter months.

Good afternoon, this may be a little random, but I have had an experience due to your shop!
I popped in a couple of weeks ago and picked-up a book for my grandma related to WW1 and Castle Donington. Through her reading of the book, we discovered that it had some relatives in it. We found out more information about our family history and how they passed in the war. I used this information to undertake some online/Facebook research and I am now in contact with some Austrian relatives.
A 10-minute trip to you has led to a lot!

"This fabulous bookshop is quirky, welcoming - an absolute treasure trove. The time's I've challenged the team to find a certain book for me and never have they let me down. Now when I go in they make suggestions of books they think I may enjoy and even keep books to one side for me if I'm not about for a day or two.

They also provide the most wonderful monthly subscription to my Mum - a cosy crime novel each month. As I live a good distance from her it's lovely to hear her excitement when she receives her book and to talk about what has been sent on the 'phone. A great gift thoughtfully delivered by an knowledgeable, wonderful team. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work! You are, without a doubt, my favourite shop in all the world! x" Rachel in Wales
