Count To Ten

Gibson Dickie

Amy is cursed by her psychotic impulse to count every good or bad thing that happens in her life. When she reaches her decisive bad count of ten, there's a real danger that her alter-ego, Jessica, will make someone suffer.

The local police force is in a state of flux. Detective Sergeants Holmes and Chappell are thrown together to solve a murder. One inspirational, one meticulous, they are presented with a body more than a week old, limited and contradictory forensic evidence, and no obvious suspect.

Having missed the critical first forty-eight hours of opportunity, the detectives have an uphill struggle if they are to solve a brutal and callous crime and achieve a successful arrest and conviction.

The perpetrator has methodically cleansed the crime scene and dispassionately disposed of the evidence. Can she continue to avoid detection? Could she possibly strike again?

Gibson Dickie is a latecomer to writing, completing his first novel in his late fifties. Having studied physics in his Scottish homeland, he spent a large portion of his career working in the offshore oil industry before graduating into business sales. His career has involved substantial international travel, and residential periods in Bahrain, Dubai and Western Australia. Inconsistent hobbies include golf, cycling, swimming, football, rugby and progressive rock music, the latter frustrated by a complete lack of musical ability. Oh, and he really likes to cook and spend time with his granddaughters. A continuation of Count to Ten is in process.
