‘Gritty and close to the bone, Hold Your Tongue is a compelling, addictive read that I devoured in one sitting.’ Lisa Hall, bestselling author of Between You and Me

In the run up to Christmas, a serial killer stalks the streets of Aberdeen . . .

On Detective Eve Hunter’s first Monday back at work following enforced leave, she is called to the scene of a gruesome crime. A young woman’s body has been discovered in a hotel room, her face mutilated and her tongue cut out. A newspaper headline about the victim’s burgeoning modeling career is pinned to the body.

Hunter and her team spend the week chasing leads, until the following Tuesday, another body is discovered in similar circumstances. Again, a newspaper headline about the victim is found on the scene.

When a breakthrough with the newspaper clippings leads them to a clue about the killer’s pattern, they realize the countdown is on until the next victim is found. Battling against a team who has lost respect for her and her own personal demons, Hunter must put herself inside the mind of a depraved killer if she is to prevent another terrible death . . .

Introducing DI Eve Hunter, HOLD YOUR TONGUE is your new obsession.

Gritty, Gruesome and NOT to be missed! Gritty, Gruesome and NOT to be missed!!Hold Your Tongue is a shocking and brilliant debut by an author who has the rare talent to drag the reader right into the heart of the story and keep them on the edge of their seat until the very last page.I loved DI Eve Hunter’s ability to be both fragile – emotionally and physically broken, and racked with guilt – and at the same time 100% badass! She was an instantly likeable heroine and one I can’t wait to read about again.Thank…

Excellent page turner with unexpected plot twists This is an excellent detective / thriller novel, and exceptional for the author’s first. The characters are really well drawn and fully rounded, and you care about what happens to them. The story is compelling and keeps you turning the pages (“just one more chapter”!), and there are some excellent twists throughout the story which I didn’t see coming. As an Aberdonian I also appreciated the use of real Aberdeen landmarks and settings for the plot, which added to my enjoyment. I really want…

Fantastic read full of suspense Edge of your seat suspense with no clue as to how the ending turned out! Full of so many twists and turns that you couldn’t skip pages. Living in Aberdeen it was also refreshing to read a book where I recognised all the places mentioned! Hard to believe this is her first book but I’ll definitely buy her next one.
