I’m very excited to share the gorgeous cover for the second book in the Lena Szarka Mystery series: A CLEAN CANVAS.
It’s out on 3rd January 2019 (4 days after my second baby is due!) and sees Lena tracking down the perpetrators of an art heist in a gallery she cleans.
Click to hear a free excerpt from the audio book, read by the wonderful Rula Lenska, currently gracing the cobbles of Coronation Street. Or pre-order on Amazon to be the first to read!
Full blurb and some lovely early feedback below.
Crime always leaves a stain…
Lena Szarka, a Hungarian cleaner, dusts off her detective skills when a masterpiece is stolen from a gallery she cleans with her cousin Sarika. When Sarika goes missing, accusations start to fly.
Convinced her cousin is innocent, Lena sweeps her way through the secrets of the art scene. But with the evidence against Sarika mounting and the police on her trail, Lena needs to track down the missing painting.
Embroiling herself in the sketchy world of thwarted talents, unpaid debts and elegant fraudsters, Lena finds that there’s more to this gallery than meets the eye.
