The Silent Treatment (Katrina Jaitley #1)
by Melanie Surani
Age category: Adult
Synopsis:If you're interested in 'The Silent Treatment, it's on Goodreads and is available for pre-order on Amazon UK and Amazon US.
Twenty-eight year old Katrina Jaitley is rebuilding her life after escaping an abusive boyfriend. The last thing she needs is the mystery she stumbles on during a bout of retail therapy. But she can't ignore the coil of film -- a piece of movie history -- she finds hidden inside her purchase. Unfortunately, Peter, the handsome host of the estate sale, disappears before Kat has a chance to return it to him.
Curious, Kat watches the strip and is shocked to witness the murder of a famous 1920's silent film star by a fellow actor. When a news article cites Kat as the film's owner, her already complicated life goes from bad to worse. Someone begins stalking her. Are they trying to silence her or what she has discovered?

Since partaking in the cover reveal for 'The Silent Treatment' a couple of weeks ago, this one has really been playing on my mind, so I love this trailer - using all of the clips from old black and white silent films really sets the scene, and I'm anticipating the release of this book all the more now.
