'Jagged Night,' Top 30 in International Mystery & Crime

My recently released mystery thriller, "Jagged Night," this week reached Top 30 in International Mystery & Crime on with 19 reviews averaging 4.7 out of 5 stars. Yee-hah!
This is what some of those reviewers are saying:
" Suspenseful and riveting - you won't figure out who the mastermind is until Mr. Henn WANTS you to know..."
"A thriller that captivates right from the start and never relents all the way to the end...A lot is happening at a fast pace with plenty of twists and turns...The characters are not some superheroes ready to save the world but just normal people. Whether they are a university professor, FBI agent, a 4 year old child, an Inuit guide, company CEO’s, politicians, spouses, anti globalisation activists or students...all are regular down to earth people, each with their own strengths and flaws...Henn also manages to perfectly blend modern age technology and thinking with Middle Age history, weaponry and related technology without using flashbacks or any other break in the natural flow of the story."
Some background: My visit to a medieval fair a few years ago, at a time when G8 protests were in the headlines, sparked the initial idea for the novel. It follows the story of ex-CEO Tom Coulter, recovering from a major illness, who along with estranged wife Amy becomes involved in the hunt for a ruthless assassin.

As for me, currently I'm putting the finishing touches to a new short story collection, and starting on a new novel about...well, more on that later, gotta keep something up my sleeve!
