Knife Edge

Another landmark day today, as my second novel Knife Edge is published by Hodder & Stoughton in hardback and e-book. When I first wrote Eye Contact, I didn't really envisage it as part of a series, but the book raised questions that seemed to lead naturally into a sequel. Now, I can't imagine one without the other.

Hopefully people will find Knife Edge is a satisfying development on its predecessor. I was determined not to write the same book twice – this was never meant to be just More Eye Contact – but it's a challenge to do something different while remaining faithful to established characters. I remember doing the research, traipsing around Bristol, writing in cafes and bookshops and on trains, working out changes with my editor… but when those pivotal moments in the plot happened, it was as though I was just writing down something I'd seen. I trust the story will feel as real to you as it does to me.

You can find Knife Edge on Amazon (Kindle and hardback) as well as iTunes (for iPhone and iPad) or Google Play (Android devices). I really hope you enjoy it.

    1. Thank you so much, Liz. I appreciate the comment and I'm glad you enjoyed. Harland will be back in a third novel, later this year.
