JD Kirk is the million-selling author of the internationally bestselling DCI Logan crime fiction series.
Ragnarok Ridge is an action-adventure crime thriller set in 'The City of the Dead' - a vast city inhabited by everyone who has ever died. The protagonist is Lash Garrett, a 40 year old cowboy who has spent the last century drinking heavily, but who is called out of retirement to save two young children from a Viking child trafficker. This would be the first book in a series, so please consider series branding when designing.
Readers of crime fiction, thrillers, and urban fantasy. Most of my existing reader base is made up of women aged 40 and over.
