A Life or Death Match....

I was talking to my editor Martin Fletcher at Headline yesterday about the next book in the ‘Death Force’ series, which is going to be called ‘Ice Force’. The outline is looking great. But we were discussing whether one of the character should die, as they have done in each of the previous three books in the series.

We decided one should.

But who?

We picked a pair of characters, and decided to kill off one if England beat Slovenia today. And another if they get beaten.

So it really is a life or death match.

Why kill (formulated pattern)? Why not shock your readers with a crippled hero, and give insight to his fight to regain sense of worth and air of normality - one false arm, one false leg!

Enough guys are blown up every week in Afghanistan.
