Publisher SelfMadeHero is releasing The Murder Mile this February, a detective story from Brighton-based based artist (and athlete) Paul Collicutt that is set during the era of Roger Bannister’s world record-breaking four-minute mile.
“A mile can be a long way to run when you have killers gunning for you. Brighton-based based artist and athlete Paul Collicutt brings together his two passions in this detective drama set during the era of Roger Bannister’s world record-breaking four-minute mile. Arizona, 1954 and runner Todd ‘The Phoenix Flyer’ Naylor is found dead. P.I. Daniel Stone’s investigations find him increasingly ensnared in a web of conspiracy, cartels and communists.”
Fittingly, the book will include an introduction from Olympic gold medallist Steve Ovett.
The Murder Mile is out 21st February. Visit selfmadehero.com for more.
