May 2016 Debut of the Month.

An emotional and tense tale of family drama and intrigue. When she was 17, Abigail’s two young half-sisters and her mother disappeared. 14 years later, while undergoing counselling, Abi makes some decisions to revisit and explore the past. Heidi Perks gets right under the skin of the relationships in this story, pulling, pushing and provoking  feelings. Abi writes heartfelt letters during the novel, as a means of expressing her innermost thoughts, and this cleverly adds a new layer of understanding. With little knotty puzzles, several surprises waiting to trip you up and emotional family connections, this is a penetrating and very readable debut novel.

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

Beneath The Surface is a novel that stands out amongst its peers in the current thriller market. With turns at every corner, it’s unpredictable, original, and written with well-paced and griping prose. The sense of terror in the novel rises throughout and Heidi has a knack for getting inside the heads of her characters that I haven’t seen executed so well in a long time. This is very much a domestic thriller and Heidi faces the complex relationships between mothers, daughters and grandmothers with intricate detail, not shying away from taboos. In fact, Heidi tackles the serious issues of mental health problems, teenage pregnancy, and dark family secrets, unflinchingly. I’m really excited to see where Heidi’s career takes her. She’s a pleasure to work with and we’re so proud to have published her debut novel.' ~ Anna Burtt, Red Door Publishing
