Good news for fans of Anne Pettigrew! Previously, Anne has published two well-received novels with Ringwood; Not The Life Imagined and Not The Deaths Imagined.

Ringwood is proud to announce that we are about to publish  her third novel. The Carnelian Tree is a multi-layered novel rich in humour and suspense that takes her beyond Tartan Noir to extend the scope of crime fiction as she interweaves a range of literary and historical references within the plot, with enough  wit and excitement to compete with the very best of Cozy Crime. 

A dead body, a disappearance, and an epic lost in time. Unrelated incidents on the surface.  Judith Fraser’s Oxford sabbatical quickly takes a sharp turn when she gets tangled in the mysterious murder of a colleague. With threads leading nowhere, conflicting impressions about people around her, and concern for increasing risk to her loved ones, whom can she trust? Her eccentric housemates? The CIA? Or herself?  

The Carnelian Tree is being launched on 20th October 2022 at a still-to-be-confirmed Glasgow venue. Keep an eye on the website for fuller details as they are confirmed.

As from today, the book can be ordered from the Forthcoming Titles Page of our website.
