Thanks for reading!
Tony Parsons here to welcome you to my official page on Amazon, where I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about the book I publish this year – WHO SHE WAS, a story with a twist that I guarantee you will not see coming.
Set in Cornwall, WHO SHE WAS is a love story, a murder story and a psychological thriller of shifting perception where no-one’s identity is ever quite certain or ever exactly what it seems. WHO SHE WAS is a story that dances on the thin line between truth and lies, good and bad, where it is never revealed who is really the victim and who is truly the murderous perpetrator, until the very last line of the very last page.
In WHO SHE WAS, I hope you will feel the love I have for Cornwall – which has been the setting for some of my favourite writers down the ages, from Winston Graham (Poldark), to Daphne du Maurier to John Le Carré. No other county in England has inspired more truly great story-telling than Cornwall. I hope that the readers of those brilliant writers will find something to enjoy in the pages WHO SHE WAS.
WHO SHE WAS begins with a fire on a Cornish beach in the middle of the night. Near the fire a young woman waits for morning and an estate agent to arrive with the keys to her new life in the peaceful fishing village of St Jude’s. But can any of us ever have a new life? And what happened in her old life? And what price did she pay to escape it? Even those who come to know her – and come to love her – have no idea who she really was. And when her past finally catches up with her in her idyllic new home, secrets long buried will explode into the light, and change the lives of everyone around her.
I am proud of WHO SHE WAS, and happy that many people whose opinions I trust are telling me that it is the best thing I have ever written. I hope you will read it too. And I hope you do not see the twist at the end coming. And I hope WHO SHE WAS keeps you guessing until the very last line of the very last page.
A writer is nothing without their readers.
So thank you- your support is always appreciated.
