THE RISE & RISE OF Carlotta Morazow

Raymond Cramble was a journalist. After his degree course at the University of Mid-Scotland he’d got a job with the Wick Advertiser. After a couple of years he moved to the Fifeman. It was somebody there who told him to get out of newpapers: “Most people get their news on TV or the internet. They only buy papers for the puzzles or the celebrity gossip.

That’s why the papers don’t bother with news any more. What there is, they just copy from elsewhere or make up. Special interest mags is the way forward.” So Raymond became deputy editor of the monthly World of Rodents. He learned a great deal about furry creatures large and small, so much so that four years later he was easily the prime candidate for the editorship of Pest Exterminator. Now he was at the top of the tree, but it wasn’t enough. He knew he could write, and he needed money.

A comfortable flat by the Dundee waterfront just wasn’t enough.

He decided to write novels. Visits to bookshops and his local library told him soon enough that crime fiction was what sold. He read enough to get a feel for what seemed to be successful, and then developed his formula. There must be a detective who is dedicated, brutal, flawed and successful, though disliked by his superiors. He must work with a partner who is a complete contrast to him. The cases he deals with must involve frequent killings of a most gruesome type. And only because of his prescient gut feelings, his imaginative leaps, and his dogged persistence after all his colleagues have given up, are the cases solved after his tense final confrontation with the killer. And so Judd Moloch was born.
