Announcing Women Who Kill!

I’m thrilled to announce the fourth Anna Scavolini mystery and my sixth novel overall, WOMEN WHO KILL. A gripping cold case mystery filled with twists and deadly intrigue, Women Who Kill is Anna’s toughest challenge yet, and will be released on Kindle and in paperback on Monday 18 September 2023.

Read on for the blurb and a sneak peek at the wonderful cover art put together by Tim Barber at Dissect Designs.

Ice Queen. Angel of Death. Innocent victim?

Cold, unsympathetic, pilloried by the press, despised by the public, Sandra Morton has always maintained her innocence, but her attempts to overturn her conviction for the brutal murders of her husband and two infant children have been repeatedly knocked back.

When Sandra’s solicitor asks criminology lecturer Anna Scavolini to review the evidence, Anna is initially reluctant to accept. Soon, however, she becomes consumed by the case’s myriad unanswered questions, and by the enigma that is Sandra herself. Did she really do it, or was she merely a convenient scapegoat?

But Sandra herself is far from cooperative, and Anna has her own problems to contend with. She’s juggling work commitments with raising her three-year-old son, and her estranged, overbearing mother is back in town. Can Anna keep the case and her private life separate, or are they on an unstoppable collision course - with potentially devastating consequences?

Women Who Kill paperback and ebook covers

Women Who Kill is available to pre-order on Kindle today, with the paperback edition available to order closer to the release date. As we get closer to the launch, I’ll be sharing more details, including an early sneak peek at the prologue and opening chapter.
