I feel it’s time, I can say it: Find the Lady is coming soon.
And what is Find the Lady? Haven’t you been listening at all?
No, humour me. Find the Lady is the second Kathryn Blake novel.
And the first would be? The first was Viennese Waltz, a contemporary thriller, described variously as ‘a slow burn to brilliance’, ‘that bloody book of yours’, and something that ‘like the finest of single-malts … [should be] … savoured rather than tasted’.
Very nice, you expect me to take your word for that? Of course not. You can read a long sample at firstchapters.net.
But not the whole book? Not yet. For now it’s available at all these places, as an ebook or in paperback. (Well, not Kobo at the moment, but I’m an optimist, so I’ve left the link in.)
Sorry, looking at the links. So what about this new one, then? It goes something like this:
Who is the girl currently calling herself Kathryn Blake? Where does she come from and . . . where does she belong? To her potential employer, collecting statements about this troublesome asset, one thing is clear: this lady is never the lady you expect her to be, she is the pea under the thimble, the grinning queen who was never in the pack
And would you like to define ‘soon’? In about ten weeks, if everything goes to plan – the last weekend of the year.
