Good morning everyone! I have a little surprise for you all today. As you may know, I’ve recently dove into Historical Fiction, and today I’d like to share the cover for my first Historical Thriller/Mystery, Toll the Bell.
This started after talking to a friend, who happened to be a Titanic aficionado, about an idea I’ve had for years of having a murder mystery taking place on an ocean liner. That conversation sparked the idea for this book, but instead of a straight up mystery, I added a few other other aspects that I enjoyed writing and hope you like it when it comes out in fifteen days (May 20).
Without further ado, here is the synopsis and cover by the awesome RJ Keith. 🙂
Synopsis: Thomas Clayton is an assassin hired to kill his best friend. He can’t help but wonder if this is the one task he won’t be able to complete. Who could his friend have crossed this time anyway?
Born into wealth, Thomas spends most of his waking moments antagonizing those of his class, until a beautiful socialite crosses his path. She proves to be as much an enigma as himself. Their meeting seems innocent enough, but when he’s forced into service to kill his current target, dark and sinister complications arise.
He struggles to reclaim control over the situation. He needs to determine why his friend is in so deep while saving his own skin, all before the Titanic reaches New York.
