First line of the book.

I’m maybe three or four metres away when he sees me. The gun swings across to point at my face.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Can you ever truly know someone? And what if you suspect the unthinkable? 

London, five months before 7/7. Georgie, a young woman wary of relationships after previous heartbreak, gives in and agrees to sleep with close friend Julian. She’s shocked when Julian reveals he’s loved her for a long time. 

But Georgie can’t resist her attraction to Nikolai, a Russian former soldier she meets in a pub. While Julian struggles to deal with her rejection, Georgie realises how deeply war-time incidents in Chechnya have affected Nikolai. She begins to suspect that the Russian is hiding something terrible from her. 

Then London is attacked… 

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Georgie ~ honest, insecure, sympathetic.

Delightful design (add the cover of the book.)

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

I imagine this book would appeal to a wide audience – it’s a character driven thriller and love story which deals with pertinent issues.

Your favourite line/scene.

Julian sits up straight. ‘Go on, tell me the rest.’

I briefly describe the incident.

’Russians – they’re all over London these days.’ He says this as if they’re cockroaches. He looks at me intently. ‘You’re going to see him again?’

’I doubt it,’ I reply. ‘He was an interesting guy – but I’m not sure. There was something a bit … edgy about him.’

Julian’s face is blank, as if everything behind it has shut down. The only movement in his body is his chest as it rises and falls. His lips are slightly parted and I can hear his breathing.
