I first saw the cover for Murder on the Marshes back in February and I’ve been itching to share it ever since. Finally the day has arrived, and here it is!
As the graphic implies, you can order the Kindle version of the book now, if you’d like to line up some Cambridge crime fiction to read on your summer holidays! It’s just 99p/99c and will download automatically on publication day, 31st July.
Here’s the blurb:
They were deep in the fens. The peat soil all around was black, criss-crossed with channels of deep, dark water. It was known to send people mad, this creeping feeling of endless space and loneliness. Tara shivered. This would be the ideal place for someone to kill you and make it look like an accident…
As the sun rises, a young woman – Samantha Seabrook – is found drowned in the ornamental fountain of a deserted Cambridge courtyard, the only clue – an antique silver chain wound tightly around her throat.
It’s Tara Thorpe’s job to discover what happened to Miss Seabrook – but the case becomes personal when she learns that Samantha had been receiving death threats… rather like the one that landed on Tara’s doorstep the night the woman died.
Together with DI Garstin Blake, Tara tracks the killer to the dank and dangerous fens on the outskirts of the city. But there’s something Tara isn’t telling Blake about her past – and it could make all the difference to whether they live… or die.
If you do read the book I’d love to know what you think.
