Hello one and all, and welcome new subscribers,
It’s been a busy summer, mainly looking after my grandchildren, (photos because they’re cute), but I have managed to do some writing – about time, I hear you shout – and the new Meredith & Hodge, as yet untitled, and I have yet to decide which of the three suspects ‘done it’, is over half way there. If I carry on at this pace it should only take a couple of months to finish. Although there is a cheeky break in Halkidiki to get in at the end of the month.
I work with some wonderful people, and designer Lindsay and narrators Perdita Lawton and Lee Beddow have done it again! It was time to get The Recruitment of Lucy James onto audio, and Perdita and Lee have done a fabulous job. But Lucy was written some time ago, and the cover designer has since retired, so I asked Lindsay to work her magic. What a result! As always she sent me numerous covers to choose from, and I usually ask you for help, but this one just jumped off the page and grabbed me. I had to have it! Don’t you think it’s stunning?
For those of you yet to read The Recruitment of Lucy James, it’s a little different to my usual Murder/Mysteries. There is a mystery, someone has been murdered, but there’s no detecting. But, no spoilers, here’s the bumph:
Lucy James celebrates the end of her final exams at university. The next day she regrets those celebrations, as she has to attend an important interview, but she can’t remember why. Is it a meeting a prospective employer, or is it yet another member of the top recruitment agency she signed up with? Deciding to wing it, Lucy turns up and meets Gloria. Gloria naturally expects Lucy to know why she is there, and almost immediately gives Lucy her first client. Lucy is horrified, but concerned she might blow her chance if she confesses her lack of knowledge, she sets off on her first assignment. Within days Lucy finds herself involved with blackmail, missing persons, and a possible murder.
Convinced she is working for a covert government agency, Lucy ploughs on with the job. Until the day comes when she is forced to make a decision that will affect everything she has ever known. And having made her choice, she is devastated when it is denied.
Nothing can ever be the same again.
Who is Lucy working for? Why is she denied the one thing she requests? Get your copy of this thought provoking mystery, with a sensational twist, today and find out.
