I’m really excited to tell you all that my novel will be published next year through Crooked Cat books, who said “We’re delighted to announce that Crooked Cat has signed new author JV Baptie today. THE FORGOTTEN, an Edinburgh-based crime drama, will be release through us in mid-2018.”

They want revenge. They will never be forgotten.

Newly promoted into CID, acting Detective Sergeant Helen Carter has a lot on her hands. When a body is found in an abandoned cinema, no one in the team has seen anything like it before and when the business card of an ex-cop private detective is found, the case takes a chilling turn.

As the body count mounts can Helen find the killer while her own life is falling apart?
