False Lights by Gillian Hamer Brings Scandinavian-style drama to the North Coast of Wales
Gillian is passionate about the Welsh coastline and aspires to put Anglesey on the map – such as Agatha Christie achieved for Devon. “All of my novels are set in and around Anglesey where we have a cottage. My first book, The Charter, was inspired by tales of a local shipwreck of the Royal Charter, and memories of metal detecting on a beach and getting very excited when I found ‘treasure’, which turned out to be pennies planted by a friend! I continue to be fascinated by the history and archaeology of the island and I try to bring as much as possible into my stories.”
Bringing Scandinavian-style drama to the North Coast of Wales: “No one deserves to die like this. No one.”
An elderly woman is burnt to death in the remote hamlet of Silver Bay. A young woman dies of an overdose on a notorious Holyhead estate. A drugs war is about to explode. Somebody knows something…but no one is talking.
Kelly Morgan has a social conscience and a pile of regrets. She wants to help but knows she’ll never manage it alone. Her boss, DI Amanda Gold, cannot allow anything – not her divorce nor her daughter nor her affair with the boss – to cloud her thinking. Another fire, another death, and the flames lick closer to home. A threat shadows all their lives. A killer is out there, but one step ahead.
False Lights is the second novel in The Gold Detectives series based along the North Wales coast. The first, Crimson Shore, was released in 2014.
