I would like to thank the lovely Francesca Poggi, representing publisher Austin Macauley, for sending me a complimentary paperback copy of this thriller for review. With its intense sounding storyline and featuring an interesting and intriguing new fictional Detective, I am certain I shall have some excellent excerpts and extracts to share over the coming weeks, including a Guest Post, which author Zoe Beesley is preparing as we speak.
After a decade of working in the darkened streets of London, Officer Fergus Toop is back in the Highlands of Scotland.
Standing in the dim light, with the clouds threatening to break over the hills, hopes of a fresh start are fast becoming a distant memory.
Death is a part of him. He can’t escape it.
The scene before him is haunting, beautiful somehow. The remnants of the day just gone still linger in the sky, offering a final breath of light before the corpse turns to black shadow and the landscape claims the soul of a broken man.
A textbook suicide.
The evidence is there in front of him. But as Toop digs deeper he finds himself caught in a web of buried truths.
Only one thing remains certain:
Not even the dead can keep their secrets.
Zoë Beesley was born and raised in Scotland, and now lives in New Zealand. She has a Master’s degree in International Relations and Arabic and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education. A Sinner’s Gift is her first novel, and a book that has been inspired by her love of the mountains and their secrets.
