Kelly Vero was born in Nottingham in 1973, and has worked in the music and television industries more recently writing storylines for Hasbro’s Transformers series of games for young people ages 13+.
A woman is attacked in strange circumstances on a midnight street in Valletta, Malta. An island country known for its history of early civilisations and military might is the backdrop for a series of distant relations and revelations as we follow Jack Sant; a Knight of Malta, on his quest to solve some of the country’s worst cold cases.
Jack takes us on a journey of chivalry and secrets as he uncovers lies and the gritty realism of crime in a small country. From the lively dancehalls to the languid conversations at dinner through the eyes of the Maltese people; a mélange of culture powered by the sun, where east meets west and north meets south in language, love and laħam.
The first book, Summer Girl focuses on a cold case from 1984. How can an 82-year old priest lead Jack to an unsympathetic killer? Hiding in plain sight Jack gets involved in a chain of events that lead to an interesting twist.
