Aye so, I got the Faber spring catalogue in the post today, which has my next novel listed in it. Yay! Seems like as good a time as any to post a picture of the cover, eh? So here it is:
Wotcha think? The one in the catalogue is an older version with a slightly changed strapline, but I prefer this one, likes. For those interested, here’s the blurb:
You hit someone. You run. But what if you have to go back?
Driving home from a party with his girlfriend and brother, all of them drunk and high on stolen pills, Billy Blackmore accidentally hits someone in the night. In a panic, they all decide to drive off.
But the next day Billy wakes to find he has to cover the story for the local paper. It turns out the dead man was Edinburgh’s biggest crime lord and, as Billy struggles with what he’s done, he is sucked into a nightmare of guilt, retribution and violence.
Drops on 1.3.12 – looking forward to it already, folks, spread the word!
