I know that I'm not the only Elly Griffiths fan around here, so you can imagine my happy dance when I found out that she's got a new book coming out. No, it's not a Dr. Ruth Galloway mystery and it's not one of her Magic Men series either. It's something new, and I can't wait to read it.
Now... if you're the impatient sort like I am, note that this book will be available in the UK on November 1. If you can wait, it will be released in the US on March 5, 2019. Let me tell you more about it!

"A gripping contemporary Gothic thriller from the bestselling author of the Dr. Ruth Galloway mysteries: Susan Hill meets Gone Girl and Disclaimer.
Clare Cassidy is no stranger to murder. As a literature teacher specializing in the Gothic writer RM Holland, she teaches a short course on it every year. Then Clare's life and work collide tragically when one of her colleagues is found dead, a line from an RM Holland story by her body. The investigating police detective is convinced the writer's works somehow hold the key to the case.
Not knowing who to trust, and afraid that the killer is someone she knows, Clare confides her darkest suspicions and fears about the case to her journal. Then one day she notices some other writing in the diary. Writing that isn't hers..."
I really wish they had left out that reference to Gone Girl, but they didn't, so I'll just have to ignore it as useless marketing twaddle. I've always enjoyed a good Gothic thriller, and I'm sure Elly Griffiths has written a good'un.
How about you fellow Elly Griffiths fans-- are you looking forward to this as much as I am? Inquiring minds would love to know!
