I’m really pleased to reveal this….it’s coming out in the UK on September 29, and there’s already something unique planned – just in Leeds, I’m afraid – prior to the launch.
But here it is, ladies and gentlemen, The Hanging Psalm, and isn’t this cover absolutely wonderful?
And if you click right here, you can read the opening.
Leeds, 1820. Simon Westow makes a good living as a thief-taker. The boy who grew up in the workhouse has become a success, finding and returning the stolen possessions of the rich – for a fee. But when mill owner John Milner hires Simon to find his kidnapped daughter, Hannah, he faces a challenge like no other.
With his enigmatic and deadly young assistant, Jane, by his side, Simon’s search takes him through the dark underbelly of Leeds, where poverty, industry and death live cheek by jowl. But he soon comes to understand that the real answers lie in his own past, and an old enemy seeking revenge . . .
