9780099471264: Perception of Death

Erin Paterson runs her grandfather’s law firm in Glasgow, and is an uncompromisingly aggressive negotiator. But, to a great extent, her obsessive work ethic conceals a terrible vulnerability. For all her ability to control the working day, her personal life is in disrepair.

When her sister’s old schoolfriend is brutally murdered, Erin’s life begins to unravel. And the past, held at bay for so long, comes slithering out of the darkness to expose a secret in the family that should have remained dead and buried.

From the Inside Flap:

A major new crime-writing talent emerges with a debut novel that reaches deep into the dark and murderous heart of a divided family.

There are some things in life better not known - some things that should be left where they rest...

Erin Paterson runs her grandfather's law firm in Glasgow, and is an uncompromisingly aggressive negotiator. But the success of her practice is not echoed in her personal life. Her father had a stroke, she can't stand her mother, her sister is a flake and their brother, Leland, committed suicide. And she's not doing too well with her boyfriend either - she discovers him in flagrante on the same day that an old-school friend, Lucy Grant, is murdered.

From this moment on, events unravel to test Erin's resolve to the maximum. Can she hold onto her job, even to her life, when the past slithers out of the darkness to expose a secret in the family that no one dare confront?

About the Author:

Louise Anderson was born in 1966. She gained an MA from Glasgow University in 1988, and now lives and works in Glasgow.
