Congratulations to Lela Middour, who is the winner of Helen’s giveaway! Lela, Helen will be in touch so she can send you the autographed copy of A Viking’s Shadow. Enjoy! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented! Hope to see you again!
What fun to welcome fellow Tule author Helen Marsay back to the blog! She has a brand new book out–A Viking’s Shadow, which is Book 2 in her Chief Inspector Shadow mystery series.
H L Marsay has always loved reading detective stories and promised herself that some day, she would write one, too. A Long Shadow is the first book in her Chief Inspector Shadow series. Fortunately, living in York, a city full of history and mystery, she is never short of inspiration. When she isn’t coming up with new ways to bump people off, she enjoys red wine, dark chocolate and blue cheese – not necessarily together!
On the rare occasions when it isn’t raining in North Yorkshire, she can be found tramping across the windswept moors with the five men in her life – two sons, two dogs, and one husband!
GIVEAWAY! Helen is giving away an autographed print copy of A Viking’s Shadow to one lucky commenter. Comment below for a chance to win!
A Viking’s Shadow
The shadows of the past are never far away…
Detective Chief Inspector John Shadow is doing his best to ignore the madness of York’s annual Viking Festival when duty calls. The body of a wealthy businessman, who was playing the role of the Viking king, is found slain by his own ancient sword. The murder scene looks staged, but before Shadow can compile a list of people to question a second body is found. Shadow doesn’t have to look far for suspects—the victims were by no means model citizens.
John Shadow is a man of contradictions. A solitary figure, who shuns company, but is a keen observer of all he meets. A lover of good food, but whose fridge is almost always empty. He prefers to work alone but is ably assisted by the eager Sergeant Jimmy Chang. Together, the two men navigate a web of corruption and family drama to solve the murders before the killer can strike again.
