Dead in Time
Publisher: Accent Press
When successful London psychiatrist Sara Jones’s relationship breaks down, she returns to the remote part of Wales she grew up in, keen to clear her head and start afresh. Soon, though, her former boyfriend, Metropolitan Police detective Jamie Harding, is back in her life – investigating a series of murders with links to the occult. Sara is drawn into assisting the investigation – much to the chagrin of her childhood friend, Ceri Lloyd, the detective in charge.
As more bodies are found, a series of clues makes Sara realise that the killer believes they have psychic powers. Soon, the killer confronts Sara and offers a shocking explanation for their crimes – one that could have a massive impact on her life and, crucially, allow her to come to terms with the tragedy that haunts her past…but at what price?
A sharp, clever thriller with a paranormal twist, Dead in Time is the first novel featuring Sara Jones by up-and-coming crime writer Terence Bailey.
