Local author, Philippa East has recently written her second novel, Safe and Sound.

Her debut Little White Lies burst onto the psychological suspense scene in February 2020. It has sold over 52,000 copies and has been shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger 2020. Safe and Sound is another enthralling novel that is guaranteed to get under your skin!

Home can be the most dangerous place... In a small London bedsit, a radio is playing. A small dining table is set for three and curled up on the sofa is a woman’s body... Jenn is the one who discovers the woman, along with the bailiffs. All indications suggest that the tenant - Sarah Jones - was pretty, charismatic and full of life.

So how is it possible that her body has lain undiscovered for ten whole months? Clearly haunted by her own demons, Jenn turns detective and is compelled to find out the truth behind the life lost. Her feelings of guilt and anxiety soon turn her search for answers in to an obsession which spins her life upside down.

This gripping psychological thriller is a page turner from the outset, with twists and turns right to the very end.
