Hidden Depths by J H Mann #HiddenDepths @JasonMa74964503 BLOG TOUR @rararesources #BookSpotlight


On a wild Cornish headland, Catherine Carlyon takes a decision that will change her life forever.

She is facing the bleak prospect of years in prison after being sucked into a fraud by a man she thought loved her.

Catherine has found a possible way out – to disappear. But disappearing comes at a price. She must abandon her family and everything she holds dear.

An epic adventure in the North Atlantic is looming which will take her to her limits and beyond…

Hidden Depths by J H Mann was published on 1 May 2023 by Dark Spider Books. As part of this Blog Tour organised by Rachel's Random Resources, I am delighted to shine a spotlight on the book and the author today 

Praise for Hidden Depths:

‘A conventional middle-aged woman has a passionate affair, becomes embroiled in fraud and makes the desperate decision to risk all in the hope of disappearing. J.H.Mann has lovingly evoked the Cornish landscape, from the wild Atlantic coast to the bleak and threatening moors, as a setting for a gripping thriller. I loved it’ – Debi Alper, author of the Nirvana series of thrillers.

‘The real essence of the challenge of open water swimming has been woven into a finely crafted suspense novel’ – Mark Richards, long distance swimmer, one of the few people to have successfully completed the 28-mile swim between Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Jason Mann is an award-winning journalist and writer living in the South West of
England with Nicola, his wife, and their lively whippet, Patch. 

He is also a shore-based volunteer for the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution).

Jason says: ‘Many of my stories are set in the wonderful county of Cornwall where truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction. I have swum and surfed there much of my life. It has been a special place for me with its legends, soaring cliffs, rugged moors and wild seas. The landscape has a raw, mystical magic. My father and mother’s recollections of rescues and tragedies on the North coast are often the inspiration for my stories. 
My father became one of the county’s early lifeguards after his predecessor was killed by a strike of lightning while standing in waist-deep water during a rescue.’
