Today and tomorrow – that’s 22 and 23 February 2012 – you can download Linda Gruchy’s self-published crime novel Death in Spiggs Wood for free on Amazon. As the title suggest, Spiggs Wood in Essex is at the heart of the action. Kickboxing champion Meg Rusher has shot one man and wounded another, and while she claims it was self-defence, it’s her word against theirs.
Meg is in a battle to prove her innocence and it’s all the more compelling because she has three children. The story is told from the perspective of Meg and that of the police, and other readers have found the book tense, atmospheric, gritty and even scary. One has described Death in Spiggs Wood as Rankin meets Martine Cole.
The book is free for two days only. If you download it and read it let us know what you think by posting your comments below.
