Don't Look Back
The fourth book in Scott Frost's acclaimed Alex Delillo series.
A young woman, missing for three years, is found murdered in the centre of the famous Rose Bowl Stadium. The only clue is a copy of an etching by nineteenth century artist Francesco Goya left at the scene, a picture of a dead woman in the exact pose as the girl.
More violent and horrific deaths follow, every person in a horrifying pose, every person linked to each other in some way. The trail leads years into the past, to secrets and lies, to power and abuse, madness and deception. For Delillo and Harrison only one thing is clear - no one is safe from this terrifying killer. And Delillo must yet again attempt to face her own past, a past laced with both danger and demons...
How is it to write books about murders and killers?Scott Frost
: I think it's just like any other writing, if you do enough research to understand the world, then from their it is all about trying to write well.
Where do you get your story ideas from? Scott Frost
: The story ideas are products of my twisted imagination. It is great to work in my imagination. I get to live in my imagination for my job.
Will there be another book in this particular series? Scott Frost
: I am currently working on my fifth book in the series. I have a few weeks off to come here. I hope to write a sixth and a seventh, but we'll see what happens. I really enjoy writing about her character, she is great.
How different is it writing for television compared with writing a novel? Scott Frost
: I don't write for television any longer, I am lucky enough to just write books- that is a dream come true. Television and novel writing are very different. With television you are writing in a large team, all of you are working towards something but you are just one piece of the puzzle. With my novel writing I am every piece of the puzzle. In Hollywood, writing is very low in the process.
What is the most rewarding thing in regards to writing? Scott Frost
: You have your days where you write as well as you could have dreamed you don't know where the words have come from but they have formed perfectly. Writing provides a certain satisfaction. You go through many processes when writing, it can take a year and you end up with a pile of papers. But when you look at that book on a bookshelf you don't feel you belong. You don't associate your name with that object.
