“My only problem with Nearly Dead is that I can only give it five stars and its worth far more than that. It’s gritty, and I read it as a stand alone book”

The renovation of a remote farmhouse on the outskirts of Liverpool uncovers a chamber of horrors but the crimes are historical. DI Alec Ramsay must sift through the evidence to identify both the victims and the perpetrators, while trying to dismantle the dangerous drug gangs that plague the city. The prequel to The Child Taker, this book is a must for fans of the Alec Ramsay series.

“A well done horror story which should scare you to death about who is still walking around in our world. It seems quite plausible that it could be true.”

“Once again Conrad Jones has written a gritty, gruesome gory, but brilliant book. Once I started reading this fast paced crime thriller, I couldn’t put it down… This book is definitely not for the faint hearted but it is a fantastic gripping crime thriller and I loved it!”

“I highly recommend Nearly Dead although it’s not for the faint hearted. It’s a fast paced thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Warning, you will fast become addicted to this series!! Five shiny stars from purplebookstand!”

Conrad Jones has the ability to take his readers to the place of your worst nightmare, he certainly knows how to shock you with his writing. I couldn’t put the book down. I read the child taker and the others in the series, and this is just as brutal as them. It is not for the squeamish as he describes everything in detail. I have been totally gripped by the Alec Ramsay series. Unputdownable, scary. Can’t wait to read more.”

“I don’t know how he does it! Yet again Mr Jones has created a story of the most repugnant and evil men who are so absorbing in their vile behavior that you simply can’t stop reading. It is, in fact, ten to one in the morning, and I am so impressed by the writing, the characterization and the depths of depravity documented, I felt I couldn’t possibly go to sleep until I’d written my review. This is a superb prequel to The Child Taker and the back story is appropriately abusive and appalling. I am running out of plaudits with which to shower Mr Jones. I will finish by saying this is a fascinating and engrossing story that I highly recommend. Be prepared to lose some sleep! Another masterful piece of writing.”

A standalone novel and the first in 9-book series, that will keep you turning the pages. When twins are abducted from a tent in the Lake District, the hunt for a dangerous trafficking ring begins. The Child Taker follows the desperate search for the missing children. Packed with action and twists, this is one of the best thriller novels around. Guardian Reviews

“My first Conrad Jones and wow what a book. Absolutely full on, action packed, gripping from the first word, kept me guessing until the end. Likeable and very unlikable characters and a hard hitting, no holds barred storyline. Absolutely bloody brilliant from start to end.”

“This is the first book I have read by Conrad Jones and I am very impressed it held my attention from the beginning and never lost pace till the end. As this subject has been in the media for trafficking people this is a very believable story and it was very realistic but still hard to comprehend that such things go on but the story is well written and very intense and keeps you spellbound from the beginning and would recommend this author if you are a thriller and suspense reader.”

“I couldn’t put this book down! Really gripping story line right from the beginning and I really enjoyed getting into the story. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series and other books by Conrad Jones!”
