Lie Beside Me

Why a Booktrail?

2000s: You wake up. You can’t remember what happened. The man lying next to you is not your husband. And he’s not breathing . . .

  • ISBN: 978-0241363058
  • Genre: Police Procedural, Suspense

What you need to know before your trail

Louise wakes up. Her head aches, her mouth is dry, her memory is fuzzy. But she suspects she’s done something bad.

She rolls over towards her husband, Niall. The man who, until recently, made her feel loved.

But it’s not Niall who’s lying beside her. In fact, she’s never seen this man before.

And he’s dead . . .

As Louise desperately struggles to piece her memories back together, it’s clear to Detective Jonah Sheens and his team that she is their prime suspect – though they soon find she’s not the only one with something to hide.

Did she do it? And, if not, can they catch the real killer before they strike again?

Travel Guide

BookTrail it to Southampton

Southampton is  a backdrop to the story rather than the character but it gets its moment in the sun as it were. Makes a nice change from London for a police procedural and you get to see various sides to the city and various areas as the police search the streets for clues.

Southampton’s Polygon and various suburbs of the city feature but some of the streets and places are fictional for obvious reasons.
