Bone Deep

& 1 more


A twisty and propulsive read, this dark psychological thriller of sibling rivalry, love, betrayal, and the dire consequences of family fallout brilliantly plays on our fears of loneliness and abandonment, harkening to the modern gothic bestsellers by Ruth Ware and Liz Nugent. Is a story ever just a story? Mac, a retired academic and writer, is working on a new collection of folktales, inspired by local legends, and at the insistence of her only child, Arthur, she hires a young assistant, Lucie, to live in a cottage on her property and help her transcribe them. What Arthur doesn't know is that his mother is determined to keep the secrets of her past from ever being discovered. And what Mac doesn't know is that Lucie has a few complicated secrets of her own. The creaking presence of an ancient water mill next to Mac's property that used to grind wheat into flour serves as an eerie counterpoint for these two women as they circle warily around each other, haunted by the local legend of two long-dead sisters, ready to point accusing fingers from the pages of history. This atmospheric page turner evocatively gives voice to the question: What happens when you fall in love with the wrong person?

After graduating with a BA in Acting from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2001, Toni enjoyed many years working on stage and screen. From outdoor theatre productions of Shakespeare to children's TV presenting on the BBC, and of course, a must for every Scottish actor, an appearance in Taggart. She has been the continuity announcer for STV (Scottish Television) for the past decade introducing programmes such as Coronation Street and the X Factor. She also records corporate, commercial, and character voiceovers from her home studio in Glasgow. She loves the variety that voiceovers offer, from bloodthirsty video-game characters to corporate on hold messages, her days of recording are never dull. Toni particularly loves getting stuck into a good audiobook and was thrilled to have last year won an award for her audiobook narrations.
