Deadly Waters in Paperback
The paperback version of Deadly Waters has now been published and I have just received my copies from the publisher. It's what is known as a trade paperback, not sure why, whereas Tide of Death, In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill are all mass market paperbacks, the smaller variety. The trade paperback version of Deadly Waters is the same size as the hardback version but cheaper. It retails at £10.99 but you will be able to get it cheaper on Amazon. I've just looked and it's £6.25, which is a good price. A smaller, mass market version of Deadly Waters will be published but I'm not sure when. With a bit of luck it could be in time for Christmas. I'll keep you posted. But just to tempt you, if I can, into buying a copy, here's the blurb on the back cover.
When a woman, the head teacher of a struggling local school, is found brutally murdered in Langstone Harbour DI Andy Horton is appointed to lead the investigation – but not for long if Superintendent Uckfield has his way. Horton is given only a week to find the killer, after that he will be shunted off the case. Horton now has a point to prove as well as a complex murder case to solve. A note was found on the victim – Have you forgotten ME? – along with money wrapped up in a five-pound note and dripping with honey. Is there a clue in ‘The Owl and the Pussy-cat’ rhyme? Is it simply a senseless murder by an unhinged killer or does someone close to the head have a motive for murder? As Horton delves deeper into the investigation, aided by Sergeant Cantelli, the tension mounts. With the clock ticking Horton is soon forced to take a decision that will put his life on the line . . .
