EXPECTANT PARENT

If holding your novel for the first time can be likened (loosely) to holding your new-born, perhaps seeing the book’s cover is a little like espying the image of your baby on an ultrasound scan. Perhaps not. Anyway, I got to see the cover for the next novel. What do you think?

OUT in 2014
And here’s an early blurb for the book.

From the author of What Lies Within and The Method, comes a thought-provoking and beautifully written thriller.

A son returns to the small town where he grew up, where his mother still lives and where a terrible event in his childhood changed the lives of every person living there. As the story unfolds through the eyes of the son, the mother and finally, the father, the reader experiences the taut build up to one day's tragic unravelling, and the shock waves that echoed through a once happy family and close-knit community. Will they ever be able to exorcise the damage of that day or do some wounds run too deep?

In exploring the darkest corners of the human heart, Vowler asks whether we can truly know what those closest to us are capable of? Part psychological suspense, part lyrical meditation on fatherhood, war and the natural world, That Dark Remembered Day is a gripping and moving literary thriller that will haunt you to the end.

I cannot wait to read this. Your first novel was for me a highlight of my reading year of 2013.
