Today we unveil the gorgeous cover of Sheena Lambert’s The Lake, a soon to be released title from our new Killer Reads imprint.
A body is discovered in the receding waters of a manmade lake, and for Peggy Casey, 23-year-old landlady of The Angler’s Rest, nothing will ever be the same.
Detective Sergeant Frank Ryan is dispatched from Dublin, and his arrival casts an uneasy spotlight on the damaged history of the valley, and on the difficult relationships that bind Peggy and her three older siblings.
Over the course of the weekend, Detective Ryan’s investigation will not only uncover the terrible truth behind the dead woman’s fate, but will also expose the Casey family’s deepest secrets.
Secrets never meant to be revealed.
The Lake is available for digital download March 19th. You can pre-order it now to make sure you get it first thing on the day! To keep up with the latest from the author, be sure to follow Sheena on twitter @shewithonee and visit her website.
In December this year, a brilliant and unique new thriller series will launch in the UK. Already a huge bestseller in Scandinavia, The Game Trilogy is seriously addictive reading. It follows Henrik, ‘HP’ Petterson and his sister, Rebecca, as they get sucked in to the sinister world of the Game.
It began by spray-painting a door. Then detonating a hand grenade. Each task is secretly filmed and uploaded for other ‘Players’ to comment on. The more daring the mission, the greater the thrill and reward – and the acclaim. But when his sister gets caught up in the action, HP starts to suspect that the Game is playing him. It’s becoming increasingly hard to tell where the Game ends and the real world begins as HP and Rebecca struggle to escape its clutches. But how do you protect yourself from something you can’t prove for sure even exists?
All three books publish on 6th December and we cannot wait to hear what you think…
Here’s what Patrick Janson-Smith, the Blue Door publisher had to say…
‘What I love most about The Game Trilogy is its very different take on the genre. It sets off at a fizzing pace and doesn’t relent until way past the finishing line: the fiction equivalent of an adrenalin rush. Moreover, Anders de la Motte, ex-Stockholm cop (coincidentally, his beat covered the ground trodden by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and until recently Director of Security at one of the world’s largest IT companies, knows of what he writes. What’s so chilling about The Game Trilogy is that, as implausible as it may seem, everything is entirely possible. And you’re going to love HP, one of the unlikeliest heroes in the annals of crime fiction.’
