*Cover Reveal*: Not the Deaths Imagined – Anne Pettigrew


Today I am absolutely delighted to participate in the Cover Reveal for ‘’Not the Deaths Imagined’ by Anne Pettigrew, which is due to be published by Ringwood Publishing on the 1st August 2020.  I hope that you will support the author by preordering what promises to be a very exciting read!

Book Summary:

In a leafy Glasgow suburb, Dr Beth Semple is busy juggling motherhood and full-time GP work in the 90s NHS. But her life becomes even more problematic when she notices some odd deaths in her neighbourhood. Though Beth believes the stories don’t add up, the authorities remain stubbornly unconvinced.

Soon, Beth’s professional reputation is challenged. There follows a chilling campaign of harassment and she finds her professional reputation – and family – are put at risk.

Is a charming local GP actually a serial killer? Can Beth piece together the jigsaw of perplexing fatalities and perhaps save lives? And as events accelerate towards a dramatic conclusion, will the police intervene in time?

From the author of Not the Life Imagined, this slow-burning tartan noir novel from a Bloody Scotland Crime Spotlight author follows Beth on another quest for justice. Reflecting Pettigrew’s own medical expertise, Not The Deaths Imagined re-affirms the benefits of growing up in a loving family and the need for friends in hard times, while offering insight into the twisted development of a psychopathic mind.

*COVER REVEAL* : Midtown Huckster – Leopold Borstinski



Today in another first for this blog, I am absolutely delighted to participate in the Cover Reveal for ‘Midtown Huckster’ by Leopold Borstinski. This is the third book in the Alex Cohen series, and is due for release by Sobriety Press on 16th July 2020 (See below for the pre-order links). Having read and reviewed book two in the series (Here), and with the first book very high on my tbr list, I will certainly be checking out this title, and I hope that you will support the author by pre-ordering what promises to be a very exciting read!

Book Summary:

Can you keep your gelt and freedom when the cops have enough evidence to take you down? 

1930s Jewish gangster, Alex Cohen runs Murder Inc for Lucky Luciano. After the death of Prohibition he must find a new way to make money, just as the cops are baying at his heels. When Luciano goes down for racketeering, Alex loses his protection and is arrested for tax evasion-he must decide between saving his skin and ratting out his friends.

If he chooses prison time then his gang will fall apart and he will end up with nothing. If he squeals then he will have to flee the city he loves and the family he once adored. What would you do in a world where nobody can be trusted and you have everything to lose?

The third book in the Alex Cohen series is an historical noir novel, which plunges you deep into the early days of narcotics trafficking and the Jewish New York mob. Leopold Borstinski’s piercing crime fiction delivers a fix to every reader like heroin from a needle.
