Don’t Even Breathe

The brightest sunlight casts the darkest shadows . . .

Florida homicide detective Maggie Novak has seen hundreds of brutal murder cases, but when she is called out to investigate the charred remains of a young woman, in what appears to be a Halloween prank gone wrong, she is confronted with a twenty-year-old secret. The body is formally identified as that of school counselor Dana Cullen, but a distinguishing mark makes Maggie look again. She believes it is the body of her school friend Rita, who perished in a fire twenty years ago.

Maggie’s hunt for the truth behind the murder takes her back to a cruel high school trick she’s desperate to forget. And when another body turns up, Maggie realizes she too may be the target of a sinister plot creeping toward its final act.

Maggie needs emotional distance to do her job, but she’s so close to this case that she can’t even breathe. Will Maggie be able to uncover the truth of who wanted Rita dead? Or will her past mistakes catch up with her first?

Keith Houghton Posted on

When I was thirteen, my English teacher - who was fed up with reading my space stories - told me I'd never make it as a science fiction writer. Undeterred, I went on to pen several sci-fi novels and three comedy stage plays, in and around raising a family. Thirty years later, and in a bid to make some real money from my writing, I switched genres and started to write mysteries. It was the best move I ever made. Now my self-published crime thrillers have sold more than 160,000 copies on Amazon alone and notched up over a third of a million downloads worldwide. Finally, I have given up paid employment and do my dream job full-time. I'm genuinely grateful for my break and, despite my head still being full of those space stories, I try my best to keep my feet planted firmly on the ground.
