Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Witness Logo

In April this year HarperCollins made the following announcement :

WILLIAM MORROW, AN IMPRINT OF HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS, LAUNCHES WITNESS:
DIGITAL-FIRST MYSTERY LINE DEBUTS WITH 10 TITLES IN OCTOBER 2013

I am delighted that Cambridge Blue has been picked to be one of those ten, and the others include

Darkness First by James Hayman
Black Dog by internationally bestselling author Stephen Booth
Prince by CWA Dagger-winning author Rory Clements
An Illustrated Death by bestselling author Judi Culbertson
Hunted by Sunday Times “Top 10” bestselling author Emlyn Reese
Blind Date by CWA Dagger-winning Frances Fyfield
The Drop by Howard Linskey

The Goodhew series will be released in order, so that’s Cambridge Blue followed by The Siren, The Calling, The Silence and The Backs.  The Backs will have an alternative title for the US and this is still to be decided upon but the covers of the first four have been designed and here’s a sneak preview.  I love them!

Just click on the images below to see them the full cover design.

Cambridge Blue (DC Gary Goodhew Series #1)  

 

 

Some hide the truth.  Some hide from it.

Goodhew hunts it through every page.

 

DC Gary Goodhew is intelligent, intuitive and the youngest detective at Cambridge’s Parkside Station. He is the first on the scene when the body of a young woman is discovered on Midsummer Common and for the first time in his career is given the chance to work on a murder investigation.

 

Soon there is an identity for the victim: Lorna Spence. Richard Moran, her boyfriend and employer, has reported her missing and is distraught to discover that she has been killed. He claims she was loved by his staff and his sisters, reserved Alice and vulnerable Jackie. He says she had no enemies but it isn’t long before Goodhew discovers plenty, including her high maintenance colleague Victoria and Goodhew’s reckless former classmate Bryn.

They both swear that they have nothing to do with Lorna’s death but Goodhew knows someone is lying. Then there is another brutal murder and Goodhew knows it is time to use his own initiative to flush out the killer, even though it means risking his job and discovering the truth about the one person he hopes will be innocent.
