Debut Author Alice Slater hides copies of Death of a Book Seller

Book Fairy for a Day: Alice Slater shares her debut novel Death of a Bookseller

β€œIf someone wants you dead, you’re done for, and there’s nothing you can do to protect yourself.”

The Book Fairies have been sharing copies of Death of a Bookseller by Alice Slater ahead of its launch next week!

About the book:

A bookshop. A true crime case. A deadly friendship.

Roach – bookseller, loner and true crime obsessive – is not interested in making friends. She has all the company she needs in her serial killer books, murder podcasts and her pet snail, Bleep.

That is, until Laura joins the bookshop.

Smelling of roses, with her cute literary tote bags and beautiful poetry, she’s everyone’s new favourite bookseller. But beneath the shiny veneer, Roach senses a darkness within Laura, the same darkness Roach possesses. As Roach’s curiosity blooms into morbid obsession, it becomes clear that she is prepared to infiltrate Laura’s life at any cost.
