I love beautiful, and interesting, cover art so every Wednesday I post my 'Cover Attraction' for the week along with a synopsis of the book. Everyone is welcome to stop by and, if they'd like, post a link to their favorite weekly book cover.

My find this week is Still Waters by Nigel McCrery.


ISBN-13: 9780307388704
Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group
Published: July 2009

Synopsis:
Razor-sharp and mesmerizingly eerie— with one of the most clever and ruthless villains to appear in ages— Still Waters is a stunning start to an exciting new crime series.

DCI Mark Lapslie is called in when the decayed body of an elderly woman is unearthed. The body provides few clues, beyond the fact that the murderer had a deadly knowledge of household plants. The dearth of evidence is not Lapslie’s only problem. He’s just returned to the force after a year trying to overcome the worst symptoms of his synesthesia, a neurological condition that causes him to “taste” sound. The murder appears to be the work of a serial killer who could strike again at any moment, so Lapslie has to find a way to make his synasethsia work for him, not against him. Otherwise the next life taken could be his own.
