Crime, suspense and thriller is a genre that I’ve always loved, but sometimes it takes a little while for authors to find their way to the dark side, if you will. Brona Nilsson is a long-time author but a debut crime novelist, and I was delighted to work with her on her first mystery: The Sound.
So, it was a privilege to be invited to work with Brona on this new path on her writing journey.
A man overboard on a ferry. A shooting in a cinema. Is ex-policewoman Lyra Norton’s best friend next?
When her best friend’s father-in-law dies in the Sound between Sweden and Denmark, Irish forensic linguist Lyra Norton rushes to Sweden to comfort her. When Olive’s own father is murdered, Lyra realizes that the case is much bigger than anyone anticipated and nowhere near solved.
Piecing together clues with the help of a local policewoman, Lyra establishes several twisted motives for the murders. When the authorities lose interest, she must choose between the quiet life of an academic or a return to solving crimes.
Can Lyra find the murderer before Olive becomes the next victim?
The Sound is available now.
Read on for an exclusive interview with the author, Brona Nilsson.
