Now if you read my rewind recap post on Monday then you will probably remember that I was engaged in some secret squirrel reading activities for a book that was so hot off the metaphorical press that it didn’t even have a cover. Well if you were waiting and wondering what that book could be then your wait is over because it gives me great pleasure to be able to share with you the cover for Carol Wyer’s new DI Robyn Carter thriller, Secrets of the Dead. Are you ready? Here you go…
Isn’t it a stunner? Bookouture have done it again! Now having had the pleasure of doing a pre read on this I can definitely say that it is as gripping and twisted as Little Girl Lost and if you want to know how come, here is the official blurb.
Secrets of the Dead
Three murders. Three innocent victims. What secrets did they share with their killer?
A bottle of bubble bath and colourful, plastic boats were scattered in small puddles on the floor. In the bathtub lay Linda Upton, fully-clothed, her lips a shade of blue, and her bloodshot eyes wide open.
When a young mother is found drowned in the bath, clutching a receipt saying ‘all debts paid’, Detective Robyn Carter knows it’s just the beginning of a harrowing case. She recognises the signs of a serial killer, and when a second victim with a receipt is found, her worst fears are confirmed.
With the local press whipping the public into a frenzy, Robyn is under pressure to solve the crime yesterday. But her team can’t find a link between the two bodies, and the cracks are starting to show.
Just when her leads have dried up, Robyn discovers an unsettling clue she thinks could unlock the case. But as she chases across the plush carpets and manicured lawns of the wealthy elite, honing in on the killer’s shocking motive, one of her own is put in terrible danger.
The press call him The Leopard for his stealth, speed and brutality. Can Robyn stop the most twisted killer of her career before it’s too late?
A heart-pounding, toe-curling, one-sitting serial killer thriller that will hook you from the first page till the last.
Now you can preorder the book on the following links. Which you should do right now. What are you waiting for? 30th May will be here before you know it!
