I’ve had a GREAT 2020 so far, global pandemic aside. I’ve been sitting on this for a while, but the news is out! I’ve signed a second book deal this year, and the first book of this series, Twelve Motives for Murder, is now available for pre-order on Amazon. PREORDER HERE
Hodder Studio will publish Twelve Motives for Murder in audio and ebook on the 10th December, followed by a print edition in autumn 2021.
Twelve Motives for Murder is an homage to the classic crime murder mystery told entirely through interviews between the detective and each of the twelve suspects in turn. Readers and listeners must piece together the crime and work out ‘whodunit’ alongside the detective. The audiobook will be a multi-cast production.
The novel is set in the 1950s, and follows the Caswell-Jones family, who are celebrating Christmas day in Como with their nearest and dearest. Merriment and limoncello abound . . . Until Jonty Caswell-Jones is found dead in his study. With no staff today, the only suspects are the guests and the family. Jonty’s wife, Catherine, knows there’s a killer among them so she calls her acquaintance, Elizabeth Chalice, to investigate. She wants to keep this firmly within the family if she can. No one else must know . . .
PS: Covid is making it a little harder for new authors to be found, so if you did consider hitting the preorder it would really help! PREORDER HERE
