Reporting the news is one thing, but becoming the news is an entirely different story...


Award-winning journalist Janey Stuart is only just starting to get her life back on track after battling a five year rollercoaster of alcoholism and failed relationships. She’s even about to be promoted to assistant editor of the York BET Newspaper. But the week it’s all supposed to come together, Janey finds herself in court defending Sean Caron, a man she helped cover up a murder twenty years ago.

Janey thinks she’s the only one who knows what happened to eighteen-year-old Amelia Cross on that fateful night in 1999, but there’s somebody else, Mercedes, a woman who has been searching for Janey and wants to expose the truth.

Mercedes secures a reporting job at the York BET Newspaper so she can get closer to Janey. When their brazenly authoritarian boss Helen Crowe teams them up, Janey's plans for promotion turn awry as Mercedes puts her plan into motion.

As twisted truths of that night start to untangle, Janey must fight to stop Mercedes from revealing the truth to not just her boss, but to the rest of the city. When new evidence surfaces from that night, Janey must work to stop it from making mainstream news which could cost not only her reputation and career, but the rest of her life...

In Izak Hannard's first adult psychological thriller, mysteries unwind in this dark and humorous debut centred in the UK city of York in 1999 and 2019.

"I wanted to write and publish this book as a celebration of independence in a world of conformity. It was a no brainer that this particular story is set in York. It is one of my favourite places to go and brings back so many cherished childhood memories of exploring the shambles, the famous York Minster and the streets that are so enriched with a fascinating history. I wanted to merge the gothic elements with present-day themes and really enjoyed writing this story for some much-needed humour and escapism. With laugh out loud moments and controversial characters, hopefully this book will provide some comfort and joy to anyone who reads it." - Izak Hannard
