I love blurbs. When I pick up a book, I skim the names of the writer's who blurbed the book. If it's a writer I like, I'll read the book. So, imagine my excitement when Catriona McPherson, award-winning author of The Day She Died, as well as a series of "ten and counting preposterous 1920s detective novels" agreed to read STILLWATER. Multiply that excitement by 100 when I received her feedback:
"Crisp and pacy writing pulls you in deep from page one, when Jack McBride strides into a crime scene and a world of trouble. STILLWATER is the perfect combination of a tightly plotted tale peopled by rich, complex characters (plus one or two deliciously hateful true baddies). Slashed budgets, racial tensions, messy pasts - this small town is anything but cozy. The mystery itself is a classic puzzle, though: clever and convincing. Roll on Jack #2!" —Catriona McPherson, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity–winning author of the Edgar-nominated The Day She Died
If you're looking for something to read before STILLWATER is released on October 6, you should check out Catriona's stand-alone novels and her series. You won't be sorry!
FYI, I'll have news soon about the Jack #2 she speaks of. Stay tuned!
