The Shadow Men blurb reveal

At long last, The Shadow Men, my fourth novel and the third instalment in my Anna Scavolini series, has a release date. Mark your calendars, because The Shadow Men will be coming out on Monday 18th October on Kindle and in paperback.

I’ve been teasing this book for long enough, but until now I’ve only dropped the broadest hints as to what the novel is actually about. Well, wonder no more, because it’s now time for me to unveil the finished blurb:

They see everything. They hear everything. They know everything.

When a young police officer, Derek Sullivan, goes missing, the detective investigating his disappearance turns to criminologist Anna Scavolini - Derek’s one-time university lecturer - for help. Haunted by the belief that she failed in her duty of care towards her former student, Anna finds herself drawn increasingly deeper into the investigation.

Meanwhile, Zoe Callahan - once Anna’s best friend, now unhappily estranged - becomes preoccupied by unsettling rumours involving her old school. Uncovering a trail of evidence implicating the most powerful men in Scottish society in a scandal stretching back decades, she soon attracts the attention of sinister forces who don’t look kindly on those who disturb the past…

A missing police officer, a highly coveted list of names, a fatal car crash on a rainswept night - what connects these seemingly unrelated threads? And who are the mysterious Shadow Men, whose very name strikes terror into the hearts of everyone who hears it?

I’ll be unveiling the cover art and details about the upcoming blog tour at a later date. In the meantime, the Kindle edition is available for pre-order now. The paperback edition will be available to purchase closer to the release date.
