New foreign editions!

Twisted Wing is now out in Portugal under the title Os Rostos Do Mal ("The Faces of Evil"). Meanwhile the Netherlands version of The Company of Shadows is called Schaduwkant ("Shadow Cast"), and the Polish version is titled Cienie MarzeĊ„ ("Shadows of Dreams").

So what do you think of the covers? The Portugese masked killer is a bit scary. The Dutch cover does a really good job of making a pic of a girl in a summer dress somewhat sinister. The Polish cover amuses me as the heroine is described in the book as having black hair and grey eyes; but at least the model looks like she would happily kick you in the 'nads, which is appropriate for the character... ;-)

The Company of Shadows

So book 2 is now out! The Company of Shadows was published by Simon & Schuster yesterday. Available via Amazon of course, and there will be signed copies at Heffers in Cambridge from Tuesday onwards.

Flicking through her friends' holiday snaps, Kate Benson receives a sudden shock. For there in the background is her husband, Charlie. Dark hair, blue eyes, familiar smile: there's no mistaking him. But that's impossible. Because Charlie died exactly a year ago. Determined to track down the man in the photograph, Kate follows the trail from Miami to Sicily, where her husband drowned in mysterious circumstances. But when she discovers serious discrepancies in the original investigation, Kate starts to question whether she ever really knew the man she loved so much. Was Charlie murdered? Was their marriage as perfect as Kate remembers? Who are the people following her? Who can she trust? And is Kate herself to be trusted? Because there are secrets in her past too ...

Now onto book 3!
