Well, it’s been a while but I can finally reveal that my new book, THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR, is out on 27 October and the ebook is on preorder right now for 99p.
This is a new series with a new lead character, Detective Sergeant Eden Berrisford, but for anyone who has read THE ESTATE SERIES, it is set in the same fictional city, Stockleigh, so some of the old characters pop up here and there. Here is the blurb for it:
One warm spring evening, five teenagers meet in a local park. Only four will come out alive.
Six months after the stabbing of sixteen-year-old Deanna Barker, someone is coming after the teenagers of Stockleigh, as a spate of vicious assaults rocks this small community. Revenge for Deanna? Or something more?
Detective Eden Berrisford is locked into a race against time to catch the twisted individual behind the attacks – but when her own niece, Jess Mountford, goes missing, the case gets personal.
With the kidnapper threatening Jess’s life, can Eden bring back her niece to safety? Or will the people of Stockleigh be forced to mourn another daughter…?
A terrifying, compelling, police procedural which will thrill fans of Angela Marsons, Peter James and Rachel Abbott.
