I’m delighted to announce that I’m writing a new crime series!
Set in the US, in the gorgeous city of Savannah, Georgia, The Echo Killing follows crime reporter Harper McClain, who is investigating a murder that looks identical – in every way – to the murder of her own mother, 15 years earlier. The police believe the murders are not connected but Harper isn’t so sure. Her mother’s murderer was never caught. Is it possible he’s come back at last? Could she finally solve the crime that has haunted her all her life?
As a former crime reporter, I’ve always wanted to write about that world. What it was like to run from crime scene to crime scene, to live nocturnally, to see the darker side of everyday life. In The Echo Killing, I’ve found that story. And I am in love with Harper.
The Echo Killing will be published in 2018, in the US by St Martin’s Press, and in the UK by Harper Collins. Rights have been sold in multiple countries, and I will have more news on that front soon!
I can’t wait to tell you more about this new phase of my writing life!
