RATLINED is the first in the Inspector O'Leary series.
The story takes place in the winter of 1964 and mainly in a fictitious village called Chatsby near the town of Faversham in the South East of England. It’s about a love story between a young nurse and sports writer where they’re plunged into a fight to the death with members of an international criminal gang operated and funded by Nazi’s who escape Germany after the second world through the (Ratline) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratli…aftermath)

I definitely want to have the reader focus on a swastika related object such as the jpg I’m sending you, preferably in the bottom right side of the cover. (But this is only a sample which I do not own the copyright.) I would prefer another orientation of the syringe for the neadle to face the reader on a downward angulation.
I like very much the British Father Brown TV series intro’s, with it’s silhouette figures it flax paper of reds, black and white. https://www.google.ca/url?sa=i&sour…2147384296
Please let me know you if you need more information in best telling my story, I totally understand that you can only focus on a few subjects, but let’s make sure they best relay the story.
