Angie Smith has been busy at work, and on the 11th March she is treating us to a new novel. If like me you are a fan of Angie’s work expect more of the fantastic action, twists and turns that we love her writing for. If you are new to her work, where have you been. Angie intertwines plot lines like some kind of Jedi master, she is awesomely talented and this new novel is a fantastic read, I know i’ve read a sneak preview and it has kept me thinking about it for weeks. Now she has given me and the UKCBC (the best crime fiction book group on the internet) the exclusive cover reveal, I am truly honoured.
so whats the novel about:
Would you believe she is dead?
Taylor Hudson reaches the stark realisation that she is in imminent danger. Time and options have all but evaporated when, out of nowhere, she is thrown a lifeline. She places her trust in a complete stranger, someone who claims they will keep her safe and out of reach. But can they, and who are they? And why the sudden interest in saving her?
Perhaps the answers are 6,000 miles away, deep inside the British Secret Intelligence Service, where a former, disgraced, senior officer is attempting to weasel his way back into the heart of the organisation. But do they really know what this cunning fox’s intentions are?
And can The China Teacup withstand one more knock?
Illicit arms dealing, murder and corruption at the highest level. Prepare for a deadly game of bluff, double-bluff and triple-bluff.
Now the moment you’ve all been waiting for the cover:
Angie Smith was born in Doncaster and educated at Huddersfield University where she graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Education and Training. After a long career in adult education, training and performance management she retired early to pursue other ventures.
She travels extensively, and was nominated for an award on her knowledge transfer partnerships work, during which she co-produced and presented a journal article at the International Social Work Conference in Durban.
Unfortunately in 2013 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and, following a year of extensive and gruelling treatment, her desire to write was rekindled. Her highly acclaimed CXVI Trilogy inspired the creation of her fourth novel, The Spy Who Chipped The China Teacup.
She currently lives in West Yorkshire with her husband, youngest son and two dogs.
