Sewing the Shadows Together


Can you ever get over the death of your sister? Or of your best friend? More than 30 years after 13-year-old Shona McIver was raped and murdered in Portobello, the seaside suburb of Edinburgh, the crime still casts a shadow over the lives of her brother Tom and her best friend Sarah. When modern DNA evidence shows that the wrong man was convicted of the crime, the case is reopened. So who did kill Shona? Sarah and Tom are caught up in the search for Shona’s murderer, and suspicions fall on family and friends. The foundations of Sarah’s perfect family life begin to crumble as she realises that nothing is as it appears. Dark secrets from the past are uncovered, and there is another death, before the identity of the real killer is finally revealed... Set in Edinburgh, the Outer Hebrides and South Africa, Sewing the Shadows Together is a thoroughly modern murder mystery that keeps the reader guessing to the end. Filled with characters who could easily be friends, family or people we work with, it asks the question: Do we ever really know the people closest to us?

Alison Baillie was born and brought up in Yorkshire by Scottish parents. She studied English and Philosophy at the University of St Andrews and then taught English in Edinburgh secondary schools for twenty years. She has taught English as a Foreign Language in Finland and Switzerland, where she now lives. It was only when she retired from teaching full-time that she wrote her first novel Sewing the Shadows Together, based partly on her time teaching in Portobello. She’s now just finished the first draft of her second novel, which seems to be taking nearly as long to write as her first one.
