I’ve long been a fan of Liz Mistry’s work, her Gus Maguire novels set in Bradford are some of my favourite crime novels. I particularly enjoy how she reflects the true nature of Bradford as a city in her books, it’s not all dark and gritty there is lots of vibrant culture and interesting places and people too Also she has some amazing characterisation and you find yourself almost feeling like Gus, Mo and the others are your friends. So when I was asked to reveal the cover for the upcoming Gus Maguire novel you can imagine my delight, it was worth blowing the cobwebs off my Blog for. Read on for some information from the author and the Blurb and then the cover will be revealed at the bottom of the blog. Preorders will be up in the next few days, get it ordered it will be a cracker
Note from the author
October is supposed to see temperatures plummet in a sure sign that Summer is well and truly over and Autumn is settling in. So, what better way to herald the start of the darkening nights and colder temperatures than a little reminder of The Beast from the East and Storm Emma that ravaged the UK earlier in the year.
Unspoken Truths is set in the middle of the biggest storm to hit the UK for decades and poses great problems for DI Gus McGuire and his team as, in the midst of these adverse conditions, he tries to investigate a murder and disappearance that are very close to home for him.
So what else is in store for Gus and co? Well, Alice is put through the mill and then some, showing a side of her we’ve never seen before. Geeky Compo, the digital expert, reveals a lot of his backstory and Taffy comes into his own and Mo has personal issues to resolve. As for Gus – he is perhaps the happiest we’ve seen him – yet clouds hover above him as he battles the elements, his family and his ongoing mental health issues. Unspoken Truths can be read as a standalone
As ever, I am grateful to all you readers who take the time to read and review my Gus books. I hope you enjoy this one, too. It will be up for Pre-order soon, so watch this space.

In Unspoken Truths, DI Gus McGuire and his team navigate a complex web of intrigue, espionage and murder. Set in Bradford, Manchester and on Saddleworth Moor, Gus is pushed to his physical and psychological limits.
First a rural train between Manchester and Bradford is deliberately derailed by a vehicle with a boot filled with drugs, then a woman’s tortured body is discovered in Keighley. When Gus’ brother-in-law goes missing, the investigation becomes personal. As he battles against the storms of the Beast from the East, Gus must uncover the links between the dead woman, a pharmaceutical company in Manchester and a research facility in Northern Cyprus, as well as the disappearance of his brother in law. With the body count increasing, Gus sets Compo loose on the Dark Web – how will Gus react when he discovers that things are not as they seem?
Meanwhile, DS Alice Cooper faces extreme danger in prison and, as the evidence piles up against her, Gus and his team’s loyalties are pushed to the limit.
