Foyles host the launch of Bristol writer, Nicola Martin’s debut crime novel, Dead Ringer.
What if you found your deadringer through a doppelgänger app? When Ella and Jem connect, the resemblance is uncanny, but their lives are polar opposites. One is stagnating in her Northern hometown, while the other, an aspiring actress living in a multimillion-pound mansion block, is a Chelsea socialite who knows she’s skating on thin ice.
Other than their looks, their only similarity is the desire to escape. Is it possible to hide in your double’s skin? And at what cost? Dead Ringer is an all-too-believable, twisty, compelling story that will leave you reeling.
Nicola Martin grew up in Bristol and still calls the city her home. She studied literature at the University of East Anglia and the University of California, Berkeley. Her short stories have appeared in magazines like The People’s Friend and placed in national competitions. Dead Ringer is her first novel.
