That was the initiating idea behind my new Mike Delaney short story thriller ONE FALSE MOVE.
I enjoy creating nasty villains to pit against Mike Delaney and in Julius Schipp I have conjured up one of the nastiest.
And the good thing is, I might resurrect him in another, as yet unwritten, thriller. For now, he has escaped from custody after being convicted for child sex offences. So why capture Bob Messenger, a man in a wheelchair, and his young daughter? What can he have in mind for them?
Bob Messenger is Delaney’s longest standing friend, the man who created confess-confess, the crime busting website that Delaney is involved with.
So, Julius Schipp doesn’t want either of them. They are expendable. Why? Because his real target is Mike Delaney. He wants to tempt Delaney to come after him to get his revenge.
