So, here it is!
This is the fantastic cover for my first standalone novel, Pretty Little Things!
I really enjoyed writing this book. I love my DCI Claire Winters series but it has been lovely to start from scratch with a new set of characters to get to know and flesh out, in a new place, and with some new ideas through the story itself.
Pretty Little Things is a bit different from the DCI Winters series, but I am confident that readers of the series will also enjoy the new book. Best described as a psychological thriller with a investigative procedural edge, Pretty Little Things still stays true to my ‘voice’ and tendency to lean towards the raw, darker and twisty side of the crime/thriller genre.
Pretty Little Things will also be available as an audio book in due course and when there is more news, I will update the website.
I hope to have some more news soon, but until then, I’ll leave you all with the blurb and the awesome, and suitably creepy, book trailer!
It’s bad when the girls go missing.
It’s worse when the girls are found.
Six months ago, Charlotte almost lost everything. Now, she’s determined to keep her daughter, Elle, safe. So, when local girls close to Elle in age and appearance begin to go missing, it’s her worst nightmare.
Charlotte’s fears are confirmed when a frantic search becomes a shocking murder investigation. The girls’ bodies have been found – half-buried, and with traces of mud and wildflowers under their fingernails.
As Charlotte’s obsession with keeping her daughter close pushes her marriage to the brink, local DI Madeleine Wood embarks on a gruelling search for the killer. And, as they dig deeper into the lives of the people they call friends and neighbours, they uncover secrets more terrible than they ever imagined…
Pretty Little Things is the nail-bitingly terrifying new serial killer thriller from T. M. E. Walsh – the perfect read for fans of Close to Home, Behind Her Eyes and The Child.
