‘It’s a huge joy and a privilege to be snapping up more addictive Casey White books, and to see this amazing series go from strength to strength! Brian is quite literally brimming with amazing ideas for hooky crimes and adventures for Casey. His readers adore the solid team of investigators Brian has built around his main character, the incredibly atmospheric setting of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, and the shocking twists guaranteed in every book. Here’s to Casey White!’
