You guys! Remember just a couple days ago when I helped reveal the cover for Clare Davidson’s Reaper’s Rhythm? Well today I’m sharing a snippet with you, and even better, it has accompanying artwork! Amazing!
Here it is…..
Two phones in hand—mine and Charley’s—I lay on my bed. I switch Charley’s phone on. It chimes and the telecom company’s logo pops onto the screen. It fades to black and a photograph of me and Charley materialises. It was taken on a rare sunny day on the promenade. We have our backs to the calm sea. Our heads, which fill the entire photo, are knocked together. I’m smiling and Charley is pursing her lips, like she’s about to give someone a huge kiss.
I frown as I check her messages. I can’t find the text she received the night she died. I heard it come through. Charley’s message tone was the riff from her favourite song. Whatever the text said, it’s gone. I doubt the police would have deleted it. Charley must have. But why?
When everyone thinks your sister committed suicide, it’s hard to prove she was murdered.
Kim is unable to accept Charley’s sudden death. Crippled by an unnatural amnesia, her questions are met with wall after wall. As she doubts her sanity, she realises her investigation is putting those around her in danger.
The only person who seems to know anything is Matthew, an elusive stranger who would rather vanish than talk. Despite his friendly smile, Kim isn’t sure she can trust him. But if she wants to protect her family from further danger, Kim must work with Matthew to discover how Charley died – before it’s too late.
