Telos Publishing have picked up a new crime anthology edited by USA Today Bestselling author Samantha Lee Howe.
The book, titled CRIMINAL PURSUITS: CRIMES THROUGH TIME, has been put together by Samantha Lee Howe to raise money for the charity POhWER which works to give a voice to those struggling with Human Rights issues in the UK.
‘I am so pleased with the authors who stepped up and provided their amazing crime stories for this worthy cause,’ said Howe. ‘The tales we have assembled are cracking pieces of work, and cover all manner of criminal activity from the very first Caveman detective, to a woman who writes to the world’s worst killers. I’m proud to have curated such an amazing selection.’
The authors taking part are: A A Chaudhuri, Raven Dane, Caroline England, Paul Finch, Samantha Lee Howe, Rhys Hughes, Maxim Jakubowski, Awais Khan, Paul Magrs, Sandra Murphy, Amy Myers, Bryony Pearce, Christine Poulson and Sally Spedding.
Helen Moulinos, the CEO of POhWER, said ‘Meeting Samantha Lee Howe in 2020 was a gamechanger. She helped me to see through fresh eyes how relevant POhWER’s work was not only to people living in the UK but globally. Samantha’s introductions to the writers in this book made this incredible charity project possible. This anthology helps us to expand our reach, help more people and further our work to serve millions who are slipping between the cracks of public services.’
Stephen James Walker from Telos Publishing said ‘Telos Publishing is delighted to have this opportunity to raise money for the valuable work being done by POhWER to help disadvantaged groups. Criminal Pursuits is a cracking collection of short stories by a group of top-notch authors, taking readers on a thrilling historical journey through the darker side of human nature while at the same time giving them the chance to support an excellent cause.’
Publication was agreed between Stephen James Walker from Telos Publishing, and Samantha Lee Howe.
