DEATH OF A MERMAID - A STABBING FOR NEWHAVEN?

November 18th, 2019.

Death of a Mermaid is a new book from Lewes-based novelist, Lesley Thomson. It is due for publication in May 2020. Want to know more? Go to goodreads.com -  CLICK HERE  - where you can find the synopsis of the new novel which reads:


"Freddy left her childhood home in Newhaven twenty-two years ago and swore never to return. But now her parents are dead, and she's back in her hometown to help her brothers manage the family fishmonger. Nothing here has changed: the stink of fish coming up from the marshes; the shopping trolleys half-buried by muddy tides; the neighbours sniffing for a new piece of gossip."

Well, you can't judge a book by its cover, or indeed a few carefully chosen lines by the publisher, but we kind of get the idea from the above blurb.

Maybe Death of a Mermaid will surprise us all and paint a balanced and honest picture of Newhaven and its people.

Maybe...
