"UK beers are actually served at "cellar" temperature - not "room" temperature, which means they are lightly chilled, not warm. Think of it as storing your beer in an unheated room of your basement. That first sip is cool on the…"

About Me:
Born in Scotland, living in Canada and writing fast-paced U.S. fiction, Grant McKenzie likes to wear a kilt and toque with his six-guns. An internationally published thriller author (Switch; No Cry For Help) often compared to Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay, Grant also has a secret identity as mystery writer m.c. grant whose series debut Angel With A Bullet is being released by Midnight Ink in September. http://grantmckenzie.net

Books And Authors I Like:
Picking a favourite author is always difficult as I have learned, and continue to learn, so much from so many masters. From Mickey Spillane and Enid Blyton to John Sandford, James Rollins, Andrew Vachss and Stephen Hunter, James P. Hogan and Issac Asimov, Neil Gaiman, Dean Koontz and Joe Hill. But if I was being weatherboarded and forced to pick only one, it would be Robert McCammon.

Angel With A Bullet receives its first 5-star review on Amazon

Angel With A Bullet receives its first 5-star review on Amazon: Nancy writes: "There is definitely a new "girl" detective on the scene, although she is neither a girl nor a detective. Dixie is well into her 30's and works as a investigative journalist. She has many of the fine habits that come with such a lifestyle, too much drinking, too many men, along with colorful and strange neighbors. In others words all the things required for a successful and interesting detective series. Like many…
