Welcome to Books & ebooks. I chose this particular title because ebooks have becoming increasingly important for both authors and readers these past few years, a trend which I see continuing.
Some authors have known nothing but ebooks and kindle in order to reach their reading audiences. Others such as John Locke, Amanda Hocking, Hugh Howey and E.L. James* built up such sizeable ebook audiences that they found themselves suddenly courted by mainstream traditional publishers. While conversely authors such as J.L. Konrath and Barry Eisler have had notable traditional publishing careers but swear that now they’ve been lured over to the kindle ‘dark side’ (trad publisher and bookshop terms, not mine :), they’ll never go back.
* (worthy of note is the fact that E.L. James’s publishing success was kick-started by a small Australian literary press which specialized mainly in ebooks).
Two boys.One Murder.
Sometimes justice takes more than a lifetime.
A car accident in California, a deadly assault in Provence, and two boys 30 years apart are left battling for their lives.
Dominic Fornier is the detective who finds himself at the heart of the investigation. A simple provincial case that becomes one of the largest and most important in French criminal history.
Fornier’s only hope is to prove the link between the two boys thirty years apart. A compulsive journey through forensic, medical and psychiatric evidence between France, the USA and London; a breathless paper chase of clues from a young boy’s psyche… and a desperate race against time with a killer who will stop at nothing.
