It’s a pleasure to reveal the cover for Simone Buchholz’s Beton Rouge, the Hamburg crime writer’s second novel with Orenda Books – which will be out in February 2019, translated by Rachel Ward.
Love that neon lettering! And the significance of that very arresting image becomes a little clearer when you read this teaser from Orenda:
Simone is a wonderfully engaging crime writer. If you haven’t yet read the first in the ‘Chastity Riley’ series, Blue Night – beautifully translated by Rachel Ward – then head over to Orenda Books for a peek. And you can read a great interview with Simone here. Key takeaway – ‘everyone needs a beer family’.
Love Hamburg, love to discover the city through Simone’s eyes!
Blue Night has a great sense of place! I lived in St. Pauli, Hamburg for a bit in the 90s, so it brought back lots of interesting memories 🙂
Oh, that’s quite a cover, Mrs. P.! And the story sounds suspenseful. I’ll be interested in knowing more about it when it comes out.
Will keep you posted, Margot!
Mmmm, think I ought to start with the first book!
Sounds like a plan, Christine!
