A New Title for 2017 – The Lies Within

It seems rather strange sharing this now, what with Beneath the Ashes only just flown the nest, but I’m at the mercy of publishing schedules so here is the cover of The Lies Within, my next book. Whoohoo!


The Lies Within is the third title in the DI Jackman series and scheduled for release by Legend Press on 2nd May 2017. I think this may be my favourite cover yet, and it is a perfect match for a story which takes DI Will Jackman on location to Market Harborough in Leicestershire. Just as he is reviewing unsolved crimes, a new case comes to light that fits with the profile and proves to be his toughest assignment to date. Here’s the blurb:


Be under no illusions by her kind face and eloquent manner… This woman is guilty of murder.

Grace Bannister is distraught after her daughter’s body is found in a Leicestershire country lane. With her family falling apart and the investigation going nowhere, Grace’s only solace is the re-emergence of Faye, an old friend who seems to understand her loss.

DI Will Jackman delves into the case, until a family tragedy and a figure from his past threaten to derail him.

When the police discover another victim, the spotlight falls on Grace. Can Jackman find the killer, before she is convicted of a crime she didn’t commit?


While Will Jackman temporarily heads up a new team in this novel, there is a little of his Stratford upon Avon home thrown in for good measure, and his old mate, DS Davies, gets a look in too!

I really hope you like the next instalment in the series. The Lies Within is now available for pre-order here.
