Published by Garreteer Press, my debut novel is a literary thriller in which the relative safety of Ruth Morton’s quiet life is shattered when she discovers a description of herself in a novel delivered to her as a loyalty gift from her book club.

Ruth reads a physical description of herself in a book

The book, The Ruthlessness of One Man claims to be to bebased on the physical appearance of a real-life London commuter,and its author, Mr Walden, promises his readers that “things are rarely as they seem.”

Ruth is sufficiently unsettled at being the model for the book’s self-serving protagonist, Davina, and decides to track down and confront the author. But that proves more difficult than she imagined.

“Tamsin Kate Walker’s  powerful debut novel has an elegant and assured style which balances mystery, dark humour, and a subtle evocation of place and character which fits perfectly with the suspense of the plot. A talent to look out for.” J. P. Davidson, Author of Planet Word

“A thoroughly entertaining read and one that, as a daily commuter surrounded by fellow rail travellers, I found particularly fascinating. It’s intriguing twists and turns lead to a gripping and dramatic climax on the beautiful and remote Scottish island of Iona – so vividly drawn I could taste the salt air. The skill of the storyteller kept me guessing till the end.” Ruby Lawless on Amazon reviews
