The death of Princess Diana isn't mentioned by name in The Accident Man, but it does play a large role.

So what do I think happened in the crash?

Bookslut Interview

I was recently interviewed by Clayton Moore for Bookslut.

Here are the results.

Some Early Press and Reviews

The Accident Man has already received some great press.

A couple nice pre-publication quotes:

"Anyone who loves an intelligent, unpredictable and exciting story is going to enjoy this immensely. I absolutely loved it."
-Publishers Weekly, Galley Talk

"Cain's debut thriller...boasts a compelling protagonist who shows the potential to lead a continuing series. Given the subject, expect this one to attract attention well beyond genre fans."
-Booklist

And here's a wonderful review from Kirkus Reviews posted on Edmund's Saltmines blog.

Ali Karim, a huge figure in the British thriller-writing community, runs a superb blog called The Rap Sheet. He was an early supporter of The Accident Man and did an amazing write-up/profile of it:

Rap Sheet - Praising Cain Part I
Rap Sheet - Praising Cain Part II

Ali's interview was also featured in Shots Magazine.

Finally, here's a nice review from CrimeSquad.com. Scroll to the bottom!

Hello And Welcome

Hi,

Welcome to the official Accident Man blog. I will, I promise, endeavor to post regular updates. I may even drop the odd hint about the sequel to The Accident Man, which has already been written, and which picks up the action pretty much where the first book leaves off. In the meantime, though, here’s a bunch of stuff that I hope will explain pretty much everything there is to know about the book, how it came to be written, its characters, and its links (or not) to reality…
