My blog friend, Rebecca Bradley, has launched her debut novel Shallow Waters, the first in her DI Hannah Robbins series.
Rebecca’s crime novel is about teenage murders and a killer on the loose. She whets your appetite some more with this blurb.
“When the naked, battered body of an unidentified teenager is found dumped in an alleyway, post-mortem finds evidence of a harrowing series of events.
“Another teenage death with the same MO pushes DI Hannah Robbins and her team on the Nottingham City division Major Crimes Unit, to their limits, and across county borders. In a race against the clock they attempt to unpick a thick web of lies and deceit to uncover the truth behind the deaths.
“But it doesn't stop there. When catching a killer isn't enough, just how far are the team willing to push themselves to save the next girl?”
DI Hannah Robbins will return in 2015, says Rebecca.
Rebecca Bradley lives in Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom, with her family and her one-year old Cockerpoo, Alfie, who keeps her company while she writes. She says she needs to drink copious amounts of tea to function throughout the day and if she could, she would survive on a diet of tea and cake while committing murder on a regular basis, in her writing, of course.
Once a month Rebecca hosts a crime book club on Google+ hangouts where you can live chat about a crime book everyone has read and has members in the UK, the US, France, and Australia. She blogs regularly at rebeccabradleycrime.com.
Shallow Waters is currently available on Amazon and Kobo in all countries.
The 3Cs wishes Rebecca and her novel, a police procedural, the best of readership and sales.
Thank you for hosting me on your blog today Prashant, I really appreciate it.ReplyDelete
Rebecca, you're most welcome. Glad to share your novel with readers and visitors to this blog.Delete
Sounds like it's very intense. I like that.ReplyDelete
Charles, those are the kind of novels I like to read too.Delete
Charles, it does indeed cover difficult topics, but I've been told by early readers that it's not gratuitous and is sensitively done.Delete
Sounds good. I wish Rebecca a lot of good luck in her writing career. Much tougher these days, I hear.ReplyDelete
I realize that your holidays don't coincide with our Christmas, Prashant, but I still want to wish you and your family a Happy Holiday and Wonderful New Year just for the heck of it. :)
Yvette, it certainly does. I'm looking forward to reading SHALLOW WATERS.Delete
Happy Christmas to you and your family too, Yvette! December 25 is a public holiday in India and there is a festive atmosphere in the air. People go on leave between Christmas and New Year. My family is exposed to the Christmas spirit as we live close to Christian institutions and missionaries. Only last evening we saw the first Christmas float of the season. Many non-Christian families like ours celebrate this wonderful season by putting up Christmas trees and lights, as my kids did last night, leaving presents under the tree, and shopping and dining out. It's my favourite festival.
Thank you Yvette. It is a tough market indeed out there.Delete
I hope you enjoy the holiday season Prashant! :)
You too, Rebecca. As I'm typing this, Christian families are dressed up and on their way to the church for midnight mass. The church near our house puts up a lovely crib.Delete
Thanks Prashant - if only it were available on paper ... I will become an e-book reader eventually I'm sure ...ReplyDelete
Sergio, I hope it does. I read more ebooks than paper books which is doing nothing to lessen the load on my creaking bookshelves.Delete
I'm just creating the paper version. The proof copy is the way to me as I type and once I OK it, it will be available to order in all countries. It just took longer to sort out than the ebook. Thank you again for your support Prashant.Delete
Rebecca, you're welcome. An ebook version will be good for Indian readers many of whom buy ebooks from Amazon India.Delete
I'm looking forward to reading this book, Prashant. It's on my kindle!ReplyDelete
Sarah, I equally look forward to reading your thoughts on Rebecca's novel.Delete
I'll keep an eye out for this one Prashant, it seems to tick a fair few boxes on what I like in a book.ReplyDelete
Col, I thought Rebecca's debut might be up your crime fiction alley. Kindle books serve me well and I hope to read it soon next year.Delete
