A New Angela Savage Book To Be Released in 2013

In her recent blog post as part of David Whish-Wilson’s Next Big Thing meme Angela Savage revealed that the title of her next book is The Dying Beach. She went on to add that the book is expected to be released in July 2013.

As with her first two books, Behind the Night Bazaar and The Half-Child, the new book will feature Australian private investigator Jayne Keeney and is set in Thailand. The book will be published by Text Publishing.

This is definitely good news for the fans of the Jayne Keeney series which started off in fine style with Behind the Night Bazaar (which was short-listed for the 2007 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Crime Novel) and was then followed up by the outstanding The Half-Child. If you haven’t had a chance to read one or both of these books, you’ve now been given a good 6 months to make the effort and read them before the new book is released. It will be well worth the effort.

For those who want to know more about the forthcoming book, Angela reveals quite a bit about the premise behind the book’s storyline, the inspiration for the story as well as few other choice tidbits. Take a look at Angela’s entry in the Next Big Thing on her blog.
