Show Notes from Tim Adler Interview
HOLD STILL is Tim’s third thriller, but the first to be traditionally published. He shares the reason for the change.
We discuss the setup for HOLD STILL, in which a woman snaps a picture of her husband, at the moment where he dies. The idea running through Tims’s mind when he conceived the story was MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS for the Instagram generation.
Tim has an extensive background as a journalist and we spend some time discussing the current state of the newspaper business.
Tim has also had success as a non-fiction author and shares stories from that part of his career, before we get into his reasons for turning to fiction.
The book takes place in Albania. Tim describes why he chose that country as a setting, and in a podcast first, shares some travel tips for visitors to Albania.
From the Publisher:
‘I photographed the moment of my husband’s death…’ So begins HOLD STILL, a nerve-twisting thriller from bestselling author Tim Adler.
How much do we really know about those we love? Kate is visiting Albania with her husband Paul, a much needed break from Paul’s stressful website business. ‘Hold still,’ says Kate, taking a picture as Paul steps onto the hotel room balcony. ‘We’ll always be together,’ Paul responds. Suddenly there is screaming below and a blaring car horn. Kate stares down from the balcony at the broken body of her husband lying lifeless in the street. Overcome with grief, Kate can’t accept the truth of Paul’s tragic death, and replays the incident over and over again, searching her pictures for a vital clue to what really happened. When she meets the enigmatic Priest at a grief support group, they journey together into a dangerous world of violence and secrets as Kate realizes what Paul really meant when he said he would never leave her……
