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!

Thanks Alessio! The publishers of Twisted Wing, Garzanti, should be publishing it sometime this year or next year, though I'm not sure yet what the title will be!
