On Tuesday, the lovely Karen Mace hosted the cover reveal for One Dark Lie on her blog, Books and Me, which means I’m now allowed to share it here too. As ever, I feel that ace designer, Berni Stevens, has done a fantastic job. (And I love the fact that she’s managed to include a bike in the artwork, as well as all the other elements!)
The official blurb is confirmed now too:
The truth can hurt, and sometimes it leads to murder …
After becoming embroiled in a murder investigation, Nate Bastable and Ruby Fawcett have decided to opt for the quiet life. But crime has a habit of following them around.
When her work dries up, Ruby finds herself accepting a job researching and writing about Diana Patrick-John, a colourful and enigmatic Cambridge academic. Simple enough. But then there’s the small fact that Diana was found dead in suspicious circumstances in her home – the very place where Ruby has now been invited to stay.
As she begins to uncover Diana’s secret life, Ruby’s sleuthing instinct kicks in, leaving her open to danger and retribution. But can she rely on Nate to support her? Especially when his behaviour has become increasingly distant and strange, almost as though he had something to hide …
The book is live for pre-order exclusively on iBooks, and will be released there and on all other digital platforms on 13th December 2016.
