I often wonder what the Tourism authorities in some of the places that authors use as their settings think.  Mixed blessing or the old "any publicity is good publicity" thing.  There are times when I think I'd love to visit Christchurch New Zealand, and then there are times when I just don't think I'm young enough (and therefore spry enough) to dodge the bad things..... 

Steve Malley writes noir thrillers, he says suspense, and he says he does it well.  He certainly knows how to write an opening sequence to make you sit up and take notice.

Poison Door is scary. This is a Noir thriller, a dark and violent story packed with action and laced with steamy sex.

Sarah Crane is one tough cop. In a country where police don't carry guns but criminals do, she has to rely on the strength of her wits and the skill of her bare hands. Faced with a series of brutal murders and the disappearance of young women no one else seems to miss, she'll stop at nothing to get to the truth. In troubled young Michelle, Sarah sees a reflection of her own dark past.

Tommy Knowles is a vicious killer. From a London orphanage to the shores of New Zealand, he has risen from life on the streets to control this small country's heroin trade. Now his own success has led him to the edge of disaster. To secure the weapons he needs in the fight for his life, Tommy will trade as many innocent lives as necessary to secure his survival.

Michelle Swanston is fourteen and in danger. Safer on the Christchurch city streets than she is in her own home, Michelle's night wanderings take her into a hell worse than any she ever imagined. With no way of knowing who she can trust, no one else she can rely on, this terrified young girl is determined not to go down without a fight...
