Negative Image

I hope you've all read Barbara's post of last Wednesday and entered her contest to win a copy of the new Inspector Green book, Beautiful Lie the Dead. I didn't even wait for the contest results, but bought my copy already.

Good thing the holidays are coming up because my newest book, Negative Image, is also being released this week.

Negative Image is the fourth in the Constable Molly Smith book from Poisoned Pen Press. The release date is supposedly November 2nd, but it seems to be available at most online sites already.

What would you do if you believe the person you trust most in the world has betrayed you? What would you do if you discover that the person you trust most in the world believes you capable of betrayal?

As the mountain town of Trafalgar, British Columbia shakes off a long hard winter, famous photographer Rudolph Steiner arrives to do a feature on mountain tourism. Steiner is accompanied by his assistant and sexy young wife, but he has another reason for the visit: to re-connect with the woman who left him twenty-five years ago to marry another man.

Twenty-five years ago she was young, beautiful, naïve, an internationally known supermodel. Today Eliza Winters is no longer young, and definitely not naïve, but still beautiful and married to Trafalgar City Police Sergeant John Winters.
When Steiner is found dead in his luxury hotel room, shot once in the back of the head, suspicion falls upon Eliza. John Winters is forced into the most difficult decision of his life: loyalty to his job or to his wife. As the RCMP dig into the secrets of both Steiner and Eliza, John Winters slowly comes to realize that he doesn’t know the woman to whom he has been married for twenty-five years as well as he thought he did.

Unable to help the Sergeant, Constable Molly Smith has her own troubles: a series of B&Es has the peaceful town in an uproar, her overprotective Mountie boyfriend is fighting with her colleagues, and a vengeful stalker is watching her every move. When tragedy strikes at the heart of her own family, Molly can’t even turn to her mother, Lucky, for help.

“…combines the crisp plotting of the best small-town police procedurals with trenchant commentary on such universal problems as love and trust.” Kirkus Reviews

“Delany … deftly sprinkles clues–and red herrings–without ever slighting her engaging characters.” Publishers Weekly

"The fast-paced, suspenseful novel explores not only the question of spousal trust but the secrets of all those involved. Negative Image is a good book to curl up with a hot drink and few distractions because you won’t want to set it aside." Make Mine Mystery

Negative Image is available at,, other online stores and the best independent and chain booksellers. It is also available for Kindle and other e-formats, as well as audio by Blackstone Audio.
