New title and cover for Sam Blake novel

Sam Blake's forthcoming crime novel Little Bones, which was originally going to be titled "The Dressmaker", is due out on 17 May 2016.

It's the first in a series featuring Cathy "Cat" Connolly, a twentysomething Dublin garda and kickboxing champion.
Investigating what seems to be a routine break-in, Garda Connolly makes a grisly discovery: a vintage wedding dress, the hem lined with a baby's bones. The dress is connected to a top Dublin fashion magnate who died the same day. Initial evidence suggests natural causes; Connolly suspects otherwise. 
In the investigation she is paired with O'Rourke, an old friend in the force. Normally she would welcome his support, but she's nursing a secret of her own. Then a Las Vegas gangster arrives in town, leaving two bodies and an FBI investigation in his wake.
Sam Blake is a pen name of Vanessa Fox O'Loughlin, the literary scout and founder of The Inkwell Group publishing consultancy and Writing.ie.
