Many of Owen Mullens books are part of a series, but all can be read alone.
Charlie Cameron Series
There are 4 books in this series – with the 4th, The Accused, being published on Tuesday 21st September 2021.
This series is set in, and around, Glasgow where Charlie Cameron, who is a private investigator, always finds himself involved in high action drama and excitement. (click on book cover to find out more)
Mackenzie Durrock Series
There are 2 books in this series, again set in the Glasgow area. In the first book, In Harm’s Way, Mackenzie Durrock goes missing, but no-one seems too worried about it. I love that DS Geddes from the Charlie Cameron series gets involved in this series also.
The 2nd thriller in this series, Deadly Harm, involves the main character helping others improve their lives, and left me wondering what I would have done in similar circumstances. Expect, as always with Owen Mullen’s fiction, plenty of action and interesting characters. (click on book cover to find out more)
Glass Family Series
This series is set in London, and involves the gangster Glass family. To date there are 2 books in the series, but I have heard rumours that a 3rd one is on its way. Expect drama, tension and grittiness. I recommend reading these books in order, ie Family first. (click on book cover to find out more)
Two totally stand alone books
Out of the Silence is set in Pakistan. This is a murder mystery about Afra who is married off to a wealthy stranger, and what ensues. A very moving story and also a thriller. Totally wonderful! (click on book cover to find out more)
So It Began is a thriller set in New Orleans. I rated it 5*s because everything seems very real and there are plenty of heart-stopping moments, plus a real gasp out loud moment (I had to explain to those staring at me, that it was the book that made me exclaim out loud and not some disaster befalling me – embarrassing!). A serial killer, an extortion scam plus a children’s pageant all skilfully intertwined to make for an enthralling storyline. (click on book cover to find out more)
My favourite Owen Mullen novel (to date)
Without a doubt it is Out of the Silence – indeed this is one of my all time favourite books from any author. It is a mix of human interest and thriller, and I understand is based on a true story. A totally memorable and thought provoking story.
So I would love to hear, in the comments, how many of Owen Mullen’s books you have read to date, and which is your favourite.
All the best, Emma
