SO NOW GO TELL
a gripping psychological thriller with a dark Shakespeare twist
by Susan Sachon
After reaching a crisis point at 40, Jenny Watson is offered her dream job running a Shakespeare festival at a Tudor pub. She can hardly believe her luck at this brilliant new start, and chance to escape her unhappy past. The job is not all it seems, however. The pub is remote and her mysterious boss permanently absent; there is a 400 year old skull residing in the cellar; and the local actors are less than enthusiastic over the choice of play. Then there is the growing conviction that someone is watching her. Strange messages, withheld calls and shadows on the window bring on temporary attacks of stress-related blindness, but Jenny refuses to give up her last chance to live her dream. At last, she finds a cast and starts work.
But as the dark play she is directing starts to unravel the secrets she had sworn never to tell, Jenny realises she is not at the pub by chance . . . and soon she finds herself the leading lady in a nightmare replay of her past.
