What if your memories were not your memories?
What if the drug hailed as a cure became your curse, and ultimately your destruction?
These questions and more are explored in Nicole Fitton’s second novel, Forbidden Colours.
Nicole Fitton is an author, freelance writer, former PR maven and marketer in the music industry, and currently works in healthcare in the UK. She and I are in a writers’ group called Mystery Authors International, and in that group we support each other through social media and blog posts. Each month one author is featured and the month of May belongs to Nicole. Though we haven’t met in person, we’ve had plenty of chats via email and social media and I can tell you she is a delightful person with wide-ranging interests and areas of expertise. One of her passions is science, so it’s not surprising that she delves into the world of medicine and pharmaceuticals in her latest novel.
Here’s a blurb to entice you:
Forbidden Colours is a gripping tale where nothing is quite as it seems. Neurologist Nick Campbell is all set to believe in the new drug Centoria, but when his patients start turning up dead he starts to wonder whether his faith has been blind.
Determined to uncover the truth, pharmaceutical employee Midori Yates and Dr. Nick Campbell find a conspiracy that is to have devastating consequences for both of them. Forbidden Colours is a clever contemporary thriller that has numerous twists and turns that will make your head spin! A book for bedtime? Maybe, but don’t expect to get any sleep!
I must confess that I haven’t read the book yet, but it’s on my list and I plan to read it in the next month or so, after I’ve fulfilled some reading obligations I’ve promised to other authors. The reviews I’ve seen are excellent and I can’t wait to read this one. I do love a good Robin Cook story, and the descriptions of Forbidden Colours are reminiscent of Cook’s writing.
Want more? Here’s a short excerpt, courtesy of Nicole herself.
Katzuko Yates eyed her daughter thoughtfully. A sense of apprehension gripped her. Those years in Japan were long ago; she wondered if she could be clear with her explanation. Even though buried, her memories continued to breathe under the mountain of life she’d lived. Dare she even speak of them? Could she speak of them? Their place of residence had become an unmarked grave in her history. Her family had a right to know, after everything that had happened. His world was dark and full of shadows; where would she begin? For over 25 years she had told no one. Now she was being drawn back into his world. It was a time she wanted to forget. The tie that had been bound to her so tightly was about to be broken.
I look forward to sharing a review of Forbidden Colours with you as soon as I get to it. In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out the book and give it a read. You can find the book here.
