Edinburgh, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 04, 2012 -- COLIN GALBRAITH'S second crime book of 2012 is an action-packed novella based on the Greek island of Rhodes, and is called GREENER IS THE GRASS.
When Jamie Tosh takes a summer job as a holiday rep on the Greek island of Rhodes, he has high hopes of changing his life for good. But paradise turns to hell, when days before his fiancee is due to fly out to meet him, a young girl is murdered in the hotel grounds - and he's the top suspect! With no way off the island and almost nobody to turn to, Jamie discovers that the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
GREENER IS THE GRASS is Colin Galbraith's second crime offering in 2012. A novella inspired by an event on a family holiday in Rhodes, it is the quintessential read for all holidaymakers heading off this summer with their Kindle packed to go with them.
"The idea for 'Greener' came to me while on holiday in Rhodes a couple of years ago," explains Galbraith. "We experienced an earthquake that hit 6.3 on the Richter Scale, and one evening at the hotel a small child went missing for over an hour. One thing led to another and the book was born before I even left the island."
"It's the perfect book for your Kindle or e-reader if you're planning on going away this year," insists Galbraith. "It's an exciting read, and because it's located in the type of place many Brits will be flying out to, it'll be like living the book as it unfolds."
When asked why the new novella will only be available as an ebook, Galbraith said: "With the publishing industry expanding further into the word of ebooks, I'm delighted to continue connecting with more of my readers through digital formats."
