Welcome to the Kembra Publications web-site. My name is Grahame Farrell and I'm a true-crime author.

I see a true-murder case as a miniature drama. The murderer, once he has committed the act, is essentially alone, his focus now entirely on not getting caught, and all the while balancing that priority with the need to act normally, to go about his business, to relate to his immediate social world. It is little wonder that Shakespeare and Dickens feature murder so prominently in their work. The rules of morality have been broken; only God and the killer know the secret.

My books, listed here in order of publication date, are available as ebooks for Amazon Kindle (each links to the corresponding product page on Amazon). The last two are also available in paperback.

A Mix of Murders
Gaslight Villainy
Blood on the Cobbles
A Gallows Guest List

Criminal Tales

Clicking on the relevant tab above will yield a synopsis and sample-chapter for each, along with some independent reviews for Mix of Murders. They are also available now in EPub format (i.e. for non-Amazon e-readers) from a wide range of other retailers on the web.

Be sure to re-visit this site regularly to keep up to date with my publications, and if you wish to get in touch, please use the contact form that is available via the tab above.


My thanks go to Richard Vaughan of Dodeca Technologies Ltd. for his fine work on the copy-editing, cover-art and electronic file-processing that the publishing of my books have required. Richard also developed this web-site, for which he continues to provide the requisite maintenance- and hosting-services, and for which I am also grateful.
