‘Day Of The Dead’ By Mark Roberts

I realise that I have run a couple of features for this book quite close together. However the blog tour schedule has only just been agreed and Mark will be stopping by on June 9th 2017, with a great guest post to fill my slot on the tour, so I am busy trying to set the scene …

Prologue – 29th September 1986

“Do not move a muscle, Eve! Stay exactly where you are!” commanded Mrs Tripp, head of St Michael’s Catholic Care Home for Children. “And if anyone comes into my office and attempts to talk to you, do not speak a word!”

Eve Clay noticed a sheen of sweat and anxiety on the fat woman’s face as she hurried from her office, slamming the door shut after herself.

Day One – Wednesday, 23rd October 2019, 6:30pm

“Actions have consequences. His sins found him out and he died because of the things that he did to me.”

Detective Chief Inspector Eve Clay gripped the receiver of her landline telephone and felt Samantha Wilson’s voice drift inside her head like a bitter wind.

She looked at the pictures of David Wilson’s dead body spread across the surface of her desk in the incident room at Trinity Road police station and felt a strong echo of the shiver she had experienced nine days earlier when she had walked into his bedroom and saw, for the first time, what had happened to him.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
