Imagine yourself sitting there with a lovely cup of your favourite brew reading a copy of Visiting Lilly. From now, right through to October the 15th, there’s a copy up for grabs in my Goodreads Giveaway. The Giveaway is open to US and UK residents. The restriction is purely to keep costs down as it’s a paperback I’ll be sending out.
Visiting Lilly introduces Detective Inspector Jake Talbot, a man with a deep sense of justice and a personal tragedy that haunts him, especially at Christmas. Talbot can’t understand why a man at a Surrey police station should go ballistic because someone tries to visit Lilly, his elderly grandmother. He’s intrigued, and this little puzzle might serve to distract him from sorrows of a Christmas past.
Soon he’s entangled with Frankie, an odd young man who claims to have met Lilly in her youth. Talbot dismisses the notion of time travel, but then discovers the Ministry of Defence has been monitoring Frankie since his childhood friend disappeared ten years previously. Forced to work with the MOD, Talbot unearths family secrets and betrayals. The families act ruthlessly to prevent him from discovering the facts, colluding to ruin him.
If Frankie is innocent, Talbot won’t let him be victimised. An uneasy understanding grows between them as they follow the evidence, for only the truth will allow Frankie to visit Lilly.
Visiting Lilly is a story of mystery, murder and a question of time travel.
