Welcome to Day 20 of the Mystery Book Tour.
Today Carys Jones joins us with her book Prime Deception.
Where is your home town?
My home town is Telford which is in Shropshire. It is in central England and pretty rural which is great for walking my beloved dog, Rollo.
How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing full length novels since I was twenty three. Before that I used to write short horror stories and poems but never actually finished anything…
What is your favourite sub-genre of mystery?
I love romantic suspense. I think that love is a really powerful force which can drive people to sometimes do truly terrible things which is why romance works really well within the mystery genre.
Where is your book set?
Prime Deception is primarily set in London, England.
Introduce us to Lorna Thomas.
Lorna Thomas is a spirited and ambitious young woman. She lands an intern position within Downing Street in London and so leaves her family home, and her twin sister Laurie, to pursue her dream of a career in politics.
Did she have a close relationship with her twin sister?
Lorna and Laurie were inseparable growing up but once they entered adulthood they began to slowly drift apart. However, they retained a closeness which even Lorna’s untimely death couldn’t destroy.
Where does Laurie begin her investigating? Why doesn’t she leave it to the police?
Laurie begins her investigation by following in Lorna’s footsteps and joining the intern program at Downing Street. The police have already ruled that Laurie killed herself so Lorna can’t turn to them for help as she is acting on instinct alone. Somehow, she just knows that her twin didn’t commit suicide.
Do you need a good understanding of British politics to get the most from this book?
Not at all. The political environment is merely the backdrop to the story, the main focus is on the characters and how Lorna’s death and subsequent search for the truth impacts them differently.
Tell us what you are working on at the moment.
I’m currently writing the third book in my Avalon series. The first two books, First to Fall and Second to Cry are already published through CarinaUK.
