The last book in the Tara Thorpe series will be published on 24th June, and is available for pre-order from today! (The paperback version will appear on the same page in mid-June.) If you want to know the identity of Tara’s stalker, and what the future holds for her and Blake, all will be revealed! For anyone who is new to the series, Murder in the Fens is also a standalone mystery.
Here’s the cover:
And here’s the blurb:
When the body of twenty-year-old Julie Cooper is found – her pockets stuffed full of wilting flowers – in an iron-age hill fort on the edge of the fens, Detective Tara Thorpe and her team are called in to investigate. The evidence points to an illicit affair gone wrong… but is there more to the story?
As always at the Cambridge Constabulary, the case turns personal. Detective Blake is exhausted after the arrival of a new baby with wayward wife Babette, and Tara is keen to put as much distance between herself and Blake as she can – both at the station and on the hunt for the killer. Charming rookie officer Jez is the perfect distraction… but is he a little too good to be true?
Then Tara makes a startling breakthrough when she finds an unsettling family heirloom hidden in the late victim’s bedroom – a golden statue of a sinister-looking cat with emerald eyes. As she traces its origins, Tara begins to realise that Julie’s murder is no one-off crime, but a sinister plot with its roots in a terrible secret that was covered up decades earlier.
I’ll miss Tara and Blake, but I’m already writing a new mystery series set in Suffolk, featuring obituary writer Eve Mallow. The first three books are due out in spring 2020. I can’t wait to share them with you!
