I got a couple unexpected packages today! One of them is from St. Martin’s Press – and I’m so excited for this July title. Oh, and this cover is amazing. The colors, the bloody hand prints on the window… love it all.
LET THE DEAD SPEAK by Jane Casey (releasing July 25th, 2017)
Here’s what Goodreads has to say about it!
When 18 year old Chloe Emery returns to her West London home she finds her mother missing, the house covered in blood. Everything points to murder, except for one thing: there’s no sign of the body.
London detective Maeve Kerrigan and the homicide team turn their attention to the neighbors. The ultra-religious Norrises are acting suspiciously; their teenage daughter and Chloe Emery definitely have something to hid. Then there’s William Turner, once accused of stabbing a schoolmate and the neighborhood’s favorite criminal. Is he merely a scapegoat, or is there more behind the charismatic facade?
As a body fails to materialize, Maeve must piece together a patchwork of testimonies and accusations. Who is lying, and who is not? And soon Maeve starts to realize that not only will the answer lead to Kate Emery, but more lives may in the balance.
I’m a little nervous starting on book 7 in the Maeve Kerrigan series, but I’ve heard so many great things about all the books. Plus, who knows, I could maybe crank out the other six between now and July 25th 😉
Has anyone read this series? Thoughts? I’d love to discuss!
