Lazy Sunday Service

Back in February I posted about Patti Abbott's forthcoming book Concrete Angel, which was due to be published by Exhibit A (an imprint of Angry Robot).  Since then Angry Robot have canned Exhibit A, pulling out of crime fiction publishing, leaving Patti and a string of other authors high and dry.  Thankfully, Patti's book has been picked up by Polis Books, who have just revealed the cover (right) and below is the cover blurb.  I'm looking forward to this one being published.

Eve Moran has always wanted “things” and has proven both inventive and tenacious in getting and keeping them. Eve lies, steals, cheats, swindles, and finally commits murder, paying little heed to the cost of her actions on those who love her. Her daughter, Christine, compelled by love, dependency, and circumstance, is caught up in her mother’s deceptions, unwilling to accept the viciousness that runs in her mother's blood. Eve’s powers of seduction are hard to resist for those who come in contact with her toxic allure. It’s only when Christine’s three-year old brother, Ryan begins to prove useful to her mother, and she sees a pattern repeating itself, that Christine finds the courage and means to bring an end to Eve’s tyranny.

This is the best news all week! Finally, Patti gets her due. I think it's a great cover and I truly look forward to the first of many novels from Patti Abbott.
