A SERIAL killer is on the loose on the Tweed Coast with five gruesome murders between Kingscliff and Pottsville.

Enter Detective Jack Creed, a no-nonsense copper from the school of hard knocks whose unorthodox methods upset the hierarchy but gets results.

That’s the premise of a new crime fiction thriller, Breaking Point, by real estate industry figure Greg Reed under his pen name of CT Mitchell.

Mr Reed lives in Brisbane but has been a frequent visitor to the Tweed for the past 20 years where much of his stories are set. In 2005 he even married his wife in front of the then Hideaway Motel (now Halcyon House).

He credits his many years selling mostly off-the-plan apartments on the Gold Coast for helping to hone his writing chops.

He had to learn to wax lyrical in written form to help potential buyers feel, smell and taste the Gold Coast lifestyle including Sanctuary Cove.

“I had to sell a dream because there was nothing there. Just a vacant block of dirt,” he said.

“As a late bloomer to the writing world I believe I can offer hope to other aspiring authors to take the plunge and actually write a book.”

Last year the 57-year-old branched out into writing short novellas, with 12 under his belt so far, many hitting #1 on the Amazon UK & US paid charts in their category.

His first story novella, Rejection, was set at Southern Cross University in Lismore where Detective Creed tried to stop a mass shooting.

Breaking Point is his first novel and centres on five murders set over a decade between Kingscliff and Pottsville.

“You won’t pick the ending,” Reed promises.
