Cold Sacrifice Launch Party

by Lloyd Paige

Crime writer Leigh Russell showcased her much anticipated new book last week at her launch event.
Cold Sacrifice marks the beginning of an exciting new series and turns the spotlight on the colleague of Geraldine Steel, DS Ian Peterson.

The event in Central London saw an array of Leigh’s fans, friends, and people in the crime fiction fraternity come out in support, and No Exit Press have printed only a limited number of books before the official release date.

I was able to meet some of the team behind the book and also a few of the dedicated fans too. Some had even travelled down from as far as Wigan and Birmingham. Leigh read a gripping extract from the book to much applause and a nice evening was had by all.

Cold Sacrifice will be released in September 2013.

Cold Sacrifice Synopsis

When three dead bodies are discovered in quick succession on his home patch in Kent, DI Ian Peterson

becomes too embroiled in a complex murder investigation to worry about his forthcoming promotion or the

state of his marriage. The first victim is a middle class housewife, stabbed to death in a park. Her

husband is in the clear until the prostitute who provided him with an alibi is murdered. While the police

are busy gathering evidence, a second prostitute is killed. Ian and a young female constable, Polly,

struggle to make sense of the case and find the elusive killer, before he strikes again. By the time Ian

realises the truth, it may be too late to save Polly.
