I love a cover reveal 💛
And I am especially excited today, as it is for SILENT NIGHT, the first book in ‘a gripping and unputdownable new crime series‘ by Irish writer Geraldine Hogan, due for publication August 23rd 2019 with Bookouture. While many of us are familiar with Geraldine’s alter ego, Faith Hogan, this is her first step into crime, so it really is the start of something new for Geraldine and I am only too delighted to be involved.
Apparently fans of Patricia Gibney, Angela Marsons and L.J. Ross won’t want to miss this 😱
‘I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to write a new crime series with one of the most exciting publishers currently around.
Bookouture have offered me a two book contract to bring my Corbally Crime Series to life. It’s exciting times, of course, it means I’ll be keeping the head down and writing like a mad woman, but I’m really thrilled to be bringing these books to life. I can’t wait for people to meet Iris, Slattery, Grady and all the team in the Corbally Station….’
– Geraldine Hogan
But firstly what is SILENT NIGHT about?
A baby is snatched from her pram in the garden. She’s never found. Thirty years later her sister, now a mother herself, is brutally killed.
When Anna Crowe is killed in her sleep alongside her children, the quiet local community of Corbally is shocked. It’s also a chilling reminder of when her sister, Janey, disappeared as a baby, twenty nine years ago, never to be seen again.
Detective Iris Locke is assigned to the case and, after a year undercover which ended in failure when her cover got blown, she’s desperate to make her mark – and to live up to the reputation of her ex-cop father, the former head of the Limerick Murder Squad.
Jack Locke ran the investigation into the disappearance of baby Janey. But by reopening the old case, Iris is also reopening old wounds for the team. Can she untangle the dark secrets that lead to one sister vanishing and the other’s death – even if it means digging into the past of someone very close to her?
Doesn’t that sound thrilling?
