*COVER REVEAL* for Not The Deaths Imagined by Anne Pettigrew

Welcome to The Bookwormery….I’m pleased to be taking part in this COVER REVEAL for Anne Pettigrew’s novel…….Not The Deaths Imagined….but here’s a little about the book first……

 

PUBLISHERS BLURB  

In a leafy Glasgow suburb, Dr Beth Semple is busy juggling motherhood and full-time GP work in the 90s NHS. But her life becomes even more problematic when she notices some odd deaths in her neighbourhood. Though Beth believes the stories don’t add up, the authorities remain stubbornly unconvinced.

Soon, Beth’s professional reputation is challenged. There follows a chilling campaign of harassment and she finds her professional reputation – and family – are put at risk. 

Is a charming local GP actually a serial killer? Can Beth piece together the jigsaw of perplexing fatalities and perhaps save lives? And as events accelerate towards a dramatic conclusion, will the police intervene in time?

From the author of Not the Life Imagined, this slow-burning tartan noir novel from a Bloody Scotland Crime Spotlight author follows Beth on another quest for justice. Reflecting Pettigrew’s own medical expertise, Not The Deaths Imagined re-affirms the benefits of growing up in a loving family and the need for friends in hard times, while offering insight into the twisted development of a psychopathic mind.

 

Nearly there, but first a little about the author…..

“A. J. Park is a master of suspense who knows how to keep readers hovering tensely over the edges of their seats.”
Sophie Hannah
THE FIRST LIE BY A.J. PARK
“This is a real page-turner. I finished it in one go!”
Martina Cole
A husband and wife cover up a murder. But the lie eats away at the fabric of their relationship and things unravel till they can’t trust anyone – even each other.
“A great thriller that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.” Luca Veste
A freak accident. An impossible choice. But what was the first lie?
When Paul Reeve comes home to find his wife in the bathroom, bloodied and shaking, his survival instinct kicks in.
Alice never meant to kill the intruder. She was at home, alone, and terrified. She doesn’t deserve to be blamed for it. Covering up the murder is their only option.
But the crime eats away at the couple and soon they can’t trust anyone – even one another…
But there is much more at stake than anyone realises – and many more people on their trail than they can possibly evade…

 
“Fast-moving, gripping, the ground shifting perpetually beneath your feet as you read… I read it in one sitting.”

Alex Marwood
