WKU’s Bell releasing 7th novel

SomebodyIUsedToKnowWKU English professor David Bell’s seventh novel will be released with New American Library, an imprint of Penguin Random House USA, on July 7.

Bell will launch his book tour for “Somebody I Used To Know” at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Bob Kirby Branch of Warren County Public Library in Bowling Green, Ky. The event is free and open to the public.

“Somebody I Used To Know” begins when Nick Hansen sees a young woman at the grocery store and his heart stops. She is the spitting image of his college girlfriend, Marissa Minor, who died in a campus house fire twenty years earlier. But when Nick tries to speak to her, she acts skittish and rushes off.

The next morning the police arrive at Nick’s house and show him a photo of the woman from the store. She’s been found dead, murdered in a local motel, with Nick’s name and address on a piece of paper in her pocket.

Convinced there’s a connection between the two women, Nick enlists the help of his college friend Laurel Davidson to investigate the events leading up to the night of Marissa’s death. But the young woman’s murder is only the beginning…and the truths Nick uncovers may make him wish he never doubted the lies.

Publishers Weekly calls “Somebody I Used to Know” a “satisfying thriller” and says, “Distinctive characters and a smartly crafted plot lift this well above the genre average.” New York Times bestselling author Linwood Barclay says that “David Bell writes spellbinding and gripping thrillers that get under your skin and refuse to let go.”

Bell is also available for interviews.
