Screenwriter and former private detective (seriously, how cool is that?) Cal Moriarty’s debut novel The Killng of Bobbi Lomax is getting rave reviews left, right, and centre. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy which I devoured a little while ago and was so excited when I go the chance to then interview Cal Moriarty herself. Before we get to the interview I want to tell you all a little about The Killing of Bobbi Lomax.
Bobbi Lomax is the young wife of a local businessman and as the book begins, she along with property investor Peter Gudson, have been killed by bombs. The story starts with the third bomb going off and the victim Clark Houseman isn’t quite dead. Detectives Marty Sinclair and Al Alvarez are investigating and as they start to uncover the secrets in this deeply religious area (ruled by The Faith) I found myself staying up into the small hours of the morning trying to read as much as I possibly could before forcing myself to go to sleep. Cal Moriarty has written a gripping book with funny, addictive characters, and more layers than an onion (truly I have always wanted to say that).
Getting the chance to ask Cal about The Killing of Bobbi Lomax was fantastic – this book made all these questions and thoughts spark off in my head and having Cal answer some of the questions for me is by far the coolest thing ever.
