Chatting With Sherri welcomes back author Lee Murray!
Sherri welcomes New Zealand writer Lee Murray, to talk about her June book release Hounds of the Underworld, the first book in a collaborative supernatural crime-noir series which she has co-written with her Kiwi colleague Dan Rabarts. Lee talks about the collaborative writing process, both the pleasures and the pitfalls, as well as working with overseas publishers.
On the verge of losing her laboratory, her savings, and all respect for herself, Penny Yee lands her first contract as scientific consult to the police department. And with seventeen murder cases on the go, the surly inspector is happy to leave her to it. Only she’s going to need to get around, and that means her slightly unhinged little brother, that is, her adopted brother, Matiu, will be doing the driving. But something about the case spooks Matiu, something other than the lack of a body in the congealing pool of blood in the locked room at the warehouse, or that odd little bowl…
Matiu doesn’t like anything about this case, from the voices that screamed at him when he touched that bowl, to the way his hateful imaginary friend Makere has come back to torment him but Penny isn’t giving up on her big break. But the deeper they get, the more Matiu realizes that they’ll have to fall into hell before they have any chance walking away. And hell is a long way down.
