Welcome to my stop on the blog tour today!
I’m absolutely delighted to share a fabulous extract from Amalie by E.J. Wood. But first, here is a little more about the book and its author!
About the Book
THEY MURDERED FAMILIES. THE FUHRER CANNOT PROTECT THEM NOW.
It’s not wise to murder the family of a budding assassin. Created by Auschwitz, her skill is honed by revenge.
A very different type of serial killer is loose in 1950s Europe. In Britain, a Brotherhood of powerful men takes notice and enhances the expertise and artistry of a killer.
DCI John Owen was born to serve. Recruited by MI6, he tracks an accomplished executioner whose love of luxury and the arts is second only to the love of watching an early death come to those who truly deserve it.
Join the chase. Then ask yourself…
Can there ever be only one winner?
Don’t miss this new page-turning historical thriller by E.J. Wood.
About the Author
Graham Young had been admitted to Broadmoor in 1961 as a bright 14-year-old child. His father had purchased him a chemistry set when he was just eleven thinking he was interested in science – what he was really interested in was poison and he’d experiment with his family by putting Strychnine in the Sunday roast to observe what would happen. He kept a log of the gradually increasing dosages. He eventually killed his stepmother, and the strychnine permanently damaged the internal organs of his father and sister.
He was eventually caught and sent to Broadmoor for ten years for his crimes. Whilst in Broadmoor he placed Harpic toilet bowl cleaner in the tea urn and thus resulted in patients suffering from internal organ damage. He got a job working at a photographic laboratory in Hertfordshire – ironically the only industrial unit in England that used Thallium, a rare metal poison that fascinated Young. His room at Broadmoor had been covered with pictures of Hitler and Swastikas, but the doctors hadn’t been aware of the warning signs. Amalie had been grateful Young was no longer at Broadmoor; she hadn’t quite imagined her demise would be at the hand of a Teacup Poisoner for she did enjoy a nice brew now and then.
