I just thought I would share some book news with you, yesterday I received an email from HQ, sharing details of White Bodies, I must say the book description has piqued my interest, and I will certainly be reading it when it’s published What do you think?
HQ TO PUBLISH HITCHCOCK INSPIRED PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER
HQ have announced acquisition of UK and Commonwealth rights to White Bodies, a unique attention-grabbing debut novel by journalist and author of three non-fiction books Jane Robins. Cleverly reworking Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train for the internet age, White Bodies follows the story of an abusive relationship that tests the unbreakable ties that bind twin sisters.
White Bodies will be published on 28th December 2017 in hardback, ebook and audiobook.
White Bodies follows bookseller, Callie, as she watches her beautiful, talented sister visibly shrink and diminish under the domineering love of her new boyfriend. Tilda has stopped working and pretty much stopped eating. Her flat is freakishly clean and tidy, with mugs wrapped in cling film and ominous syringes in the bathroom bin. So worried is Callie that she joins an internet support group – controllingmen.com – for the victims and families of women enduring abuse from their partners. But when one of Callie’s new internet friends is murdered by her abusive partner both Tilda and Callie’s lives spiral out of control.
