In the Wake
In the Wake is a thriller with a heart. I couldn’t write something superficial with the twists of a rollercoaster because actually real life is far more terrifying than any outlandish made-up serial killer.
About In the Wake
‘SECRETS ALWAYS RISE TO THE SURFACE…..’
In the Wake is a crime thriller set in contemporary London with dark ‘me too’ themes and a distorted vision of who is good and who is bad. Kay Christie, a successful career woman, navigates a professional catastrophe under the shadow of an old traumatic event that resurfaces violently and refuses to leave. When a body is found in the Royal Albert Dock, Kay is sent to quiet the media, but things get complicated when it emerges that she knew the victim.
As events spiral out of control, Kay discovers that those close to her may be harbouring another secret – the story of a missing girl. Kay needs to discover the truth before her life unravels and she loses everything. It questions whether we can ever truly leave our pasts behind and explores the lengths that we will go to please the people that we love.
