I’m absolutely thrilled to share the cover for my new thriller, Witness, which is available for pre-order now. I always get nervous around cover reveals but Thomas & Mercer have done an amazing job capturing the essence of this story. What do you think? Click on the cover to find out more.
Here is the blurb:
To Rebecca, it was a brave decision that led to her freedom from domestic abuse. To Solomon, it was the ultimate betrayal.
It’s been ten years since Rebecca’s testimony saw Solomon locked away. Enough time for the nightmares to recede, the nerves to relax; enough time to rebuild her life and put the past behind her.
Then one day a phone rings in her bedroom—but it’s not her phone. Solomon has been in her home, and has a very simple message for her: for each of the ten years he has spent in jail, Rebecca must witness a crime. And, to make matters worse, she has to choose the victims.
Fail to respond and you get hurt. Talk to police and you die. Ready to play? You have sixty seconds to decide…
As the crimes grow more severe, the victims closer to home, Rebecca is forced to confront a past she had hoped was gone forever.
Domestic Abuse and Coercive Control
Domestic abuse and coercive control are the words on a lot of people’s lips right now and highlighted in this latest book. I spent many years of my career as a police detective safeguarding high-risk victims of domestic abuse, and there are many forms of abuse. As shocking as physical violence is, emotional manipulation can be just as damaging and every bit as powerful. Although most victim’s lives may not take as dramatic a turn of events as the victim featured in my book, I hope that I have shown the strength needed to leave an abusive relationship and the far-reaching effects, which spread like a ripple, affecting friends and family too.
