The Library Murders — read the deleted epilogue!

Did you know that The Library Murders originally featured a brief epilogue that was removed prior to publication? The epilogue features DCI Claire Metcalfe, the detective in charge of the hunt for the killer, and was designed to tie up a couple of loose ends and provide some insight into Metcalfe’s home life. My beta readers ultimately convinced me that it wasn’t necessary, but I reckon it might still be of interest — particularly if, like me, you developed a fondness for the put-upon DCI Metcalfe, trying to do her best for the investigation and ultimately made into a scapegoat by her superiors.

(Don’t be surprised, incidentally, if Metcalfe shows up at some point in a future novel of mine. The brief glimpses we got of her in The Library Murders intrigued me, and I’d definitely like to find out more about her.)
