This last week has seen a few tweaks on, TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE, a final shave of words before it goes to typesetting. My novel sent out into the world a few months ago, has shaken off any surplus accessories and is now as clean-lined and pressed as a new suit, something perhaps it shares with Eleanor Costello, the novel’s first victim.
What kind of book is Too Close To Breathe? Here’s a little blurb to whet the appetite:
TOO SOON TO SEE. TOO LATE TO HIDE. TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE.
Polished. Professional. Perfect. Dead. Respected scientist Dr Eleanor Costello is found hanged in her immaculate home: the scene the very picture of suicide. DCS Frankie Sheehan is handed the case, and almost immediately spots foul play.
Sheehan, a trained profiler, is seeking a murderer with a talent for death. As Frankie strives to paint of picture of the killer, and their victim, she starts to sense both are part of a larger, darker canvas, on which the lines between the two blur.
TOO CLOSE TO BREATHE is published by riverrun April 5th 2018, and in US by Dutton May 2018.
