It was scarcely the first time that bestselling author Sheila Armstrong had died on stage; it would most certainly be the last.
DCI Alex Warren and his girlfriend, DI Sandra McKinnon, return from a short holiday, but hardly manage to step from the plane before he’s called to investigate the suspicious death.
Sheila,a member of Eastfarm Writers, has been stabbed to death, on stage, in a school, during a rehearsal of a play she’d written. Her death mimics the plot.
Within hours Sandra is roped into investigating a series of crimes which appear to be mob related.
Both their enquiries run in parallel as they each struggle to make progress while supporting each other professionally and emotionally.
Written to Death is the third novel in the Alex Warren murder mystery series by Zach Abrams.

Having the background of a successful career in commerce and finance, Zach Abrams has spent many years writing reports, letters and presentations and it’s only fairly recently he started writing novels. “It’s a more honourable type of fiction,” he declares.
His first novel ‘Ring Fenced’ was published in November 2011. This is a crime story with a difference, following one man’s obsession with power and control.
After this he collaborated with Elly Grant to produce ‘Twists and Turns’ a book of short stories.
Zach’s next novel, ‘Made a Killing’, is the first book in the Alex Warren series. It follows the investigation after the killing of a much hated criminal where an elephant tusk was used as the murder weapon was. This has been followed by ‘A Measure of Trouble’ where Alex’s team are seeking the murderer of a CEO killed within the cask room of his whisky distillery. The third, published on 31 March 2015, ‘Written to Death,’ deals with a mysterious death during a writers’ group meeting. – These are fast moving, gripping novels set in the tough crime-ridden streets of Glasgow.
Zach’s quirky thriller, ‘Source’ has three investigative journalists travelling across the UK, Spain and France as they research corruption and sabotage in the banking sector while trying to cope with their own fraught personal lives.
Alike his central character in ‘Ring Fenced,’ (Bemjamin Short), Zach Abrams completed his education in Scotland and went on to a career in accountancy, business and finance. He is married with two children. He plays no instruments but has an eclectic taste in music, although not as obsessive as Benjamin. Unlike Benjamin, he does not maintain mistresses, write pornography and (sadly) he does not have ownership of such a company. He is not a sociopath (at least by his own reckoning) and all versions of his life are aware of and freely communicate with each other.
More in keeping with ‘Alex Warren’, Zach was raised in Glasgow and has spent many years working in Central Scotland.
