Competition time again. Thanks to the lovely people at Audible.co.uk you could win an audiobook of A Commonplace Killing by Sian Busby. This smash hit book has been commissioned for a TV series which is due to appear on screens later this year. It was also chosen for ITV’s Richard & Judy’s Spring Book Club 2014. Sadly the author died shortly before the book was published so she didn’t get to see its success.
Set in London in the summer in the mid 1940s, a woman’s body is discovered in an old bomb site off Holloway Road, North London. The body is identified as Lillian Frobisher, a ‘respectable wife and mother’ who lived with her family nearby. The police assume that Lillian must have been the victim of a sexual assault, but when the autopsy finds no evidence of rape, they turn their attention to her private life.
I love the 1940s era, and a good crime drama so this is the perfect combination. Even better for me is that it is being adapted into a TV series – I love it when the pages of a book a brought to life.
A Commonplace Killing audiobook is out now at audible.co.uk. THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
