You know that way you are having a great week and a wee email just pops into your inbox and makes it a whole load better? Yeah? Well, that is what happened to me late last week when the wonderful Karen Sullivan from Orenda Books emailed me and asked if I’d like to host an exclusive #CoverReveal for Michael J Malone’s new novel, “After He Died”.  I actually think Karen may have heard the screams all the way from Glasgow! That would be an absolute hell yeah to that!

So, you all know me by now. I give nothing away right at the start, got to give a few little teasers before the big reveal!

So, what is this new book all about? Check out the official blurb below…

“After He Died”

You need to know who your husband really was…

 When Paula Gadd’s husband of almost thirty years dies, just days away from the seventh anniversary of their son, Christopher’s death, her world falls apart. Grieving and bereft, she is stunned when a young woman approaches her at the funeral service, and slips something into her pocket. A note suggesting that Paula’s husband was not all that he seemed…

When the two women eventually meet, a series of revelations challenges everything Paula thought they knew, and it becomes immediately clear that both women’s lives are in very real danger.

Both a dark, twisty slice of domestic noir and taut, explosive psychological thriller, After He Died is also a chilling reminder that the people we trust the most can harbour the deadliest secrets…

I am hyperventilating about reading this book, really excited, I mean like jumping up and down excited as I remember Michael talking to me about it a while back and now it is finally here (well almost finally here!) Due to be published in September with an exclusive Bloody Scotland launch taking place!
