Beverly Barton is a headline author for Avon and a phenomenally successful New York Time bestseller. Hailing from the Deep South, Beverly is a born and bred Alabamian with over sixty novels under her belt. She first earned her spurs as a romance writer, eventually going on to become an award-winner. But ever adaptable, she has been writing page-turning, nerve-shredding thrillers for the market since 2000.
Her latest blockbuster is Time of Death, set in Beverly’s stomping ground of the Deep South, and follows the fall from Hollywood stardom of actress Lorie Hammonds who has returned to Alabama. When the first death threat arrives, she assumes it’s a joke. But as the notes become more personal, Lorie starts running scared. Sheriff Mike Birkett, Lorie’s ex-lover, has been keen to avoid her since her return, but when investigators uncover Lorie’s connection to a string of recent murders, he’s drawn into a case that’s becoming terrifyingly intimate. With every murder, the killer edges closer and soon Lorie’s name will be the last left on the list. As she battles to unearth a deadly secret, will she be able to save herself before time runs out for good?
Described by Tess Gerritsen as “shocking and terrifying – it will chill you to the bone”, Time of Death is out now, so make sure you grab yours before they fly off the shelves!
