I finally got around to starting that novel I've been threatening for many years. It's the beginning of what will hopefully result in an interesting crime thriller. I know that submissions of prose put many off bothering to read but if some of you would be kind enough to read and comment it would be very much appreciated. Does it grab and hold, etc., or should i quit now?!
