I'm so pleased that I can finally unveil the cover for Carter Blake book 3: Winterlong
Another amazing job from the people at Orion. I think this may be my favourite cover yet. The colours and image and tagline really give you a great sense of the book.
Publication date is still a moveable feast this far out, but according to Amazon it's currently 5th May in the UK. You can pre-order in the usual places and it'll be delivered to your letterbox, Kindle or audio device as soon as it comes out.
You can read a sneak preview of chapter one at the back of the Samaritan paperback. It's one of the scenes I've written that I'm most proud of. It functions as an almost self-contained story, but one which I hope will make you want to read more.
If you're a blogger and would like to review Winterlong, you can request an advance copy right now on Netgalley.
Here's the blurb:
It's been five years since Carter Blake parted ways with top-secret government operation Winterlong.
They brokered a deal at the time: he'd keep quiet about what they were doing, and in return he'd be left alone.
But news that one of Blake's old allies, a man who agreed the same deal, is dead means only one thing - something has changed and Winterlong is coming for him.
Emma Faraday, newly appointed head of the secret unit, is determined to tie up loose ends. And Blake is a very loose end. He's been evading them for years, but finally they've picked up his trace. Blake may be the best there is at tracking down people who don't want to be found, but Winterlong taught him everything he knows. If there's anyone who can find him - and kill him - it's them.
It's time for Carter Blake to up his game.
High-stakes action, blistering tension and a deadly game of cat and mouse, Winterlong is the must-read new thriller from Mason Cross.
