Sewing the Shadows Together

Alison Taylor-Baillie, MA 1968

Murder, secrets, truth, lies - the past will come to light. A gripping page-turner set in Scotland which asks the question: Do we ever really know the people closest to us? 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... Sewing the Shadows Together is a murder mystery which draws us totally into the story and keeps the reader guessing to the end. 
Compelling reading.
