Today on my blog, I'm delighted to announce the release of the intriguing Tuscan set mystery THE SILENCE by Katharine Johnson, an intriguing and elegantly written novel that will hook you in from the first page with its tantalizing prose. Concealed at the book's heart is the secret to Alice's last summer in Tuscany, and the dangerous secret she left behind there, a secret threatening to cast shockwaves through her present life.
Here's a teaser from the blurb:
Doctor Abby Fenton has a rewarding career, a loving family, an enviable lifestyle - and a secret that could destroy everything. When human remains are discovered in the grounds of an idyllic Tuscan holiday home she is forced to confront the memories she has suppressed until now and relive the summer she spent at the villa in 1992. A summer that ended in tragedy. The nearer she gets to the truth the closer she comes to losing her sanity. In order to hold onto the people she loves most, she must make sure they never discover what she did. But the reappearance of someone else from that summer threatens to blow her secret wide open...
And here's what Katy had to say when asked what inspired her to write THE SILENCE:
"I wrote it because it was the book I wanted to read. I love stories about old houses which harbour dark secrets and I love coming of age stories where a young person makes a choice that changes the course of their life. I like writing about ordinary people rather than hardened criminals who nevertheless find themselves drawn into a crime. I like to get inside that person's head and experience their thoughts as they try to conceal their past and stop it invading their present."
