Kill Joy is the second Naomi Richards story. Children’s author Joy Davis mysteriously disappears after her car crashes during a snowstorm on the outskirts of Liverpool in the UK. Has she simply escaped her cheating and wasteful husband Jon or has something more menacing happened? Could her disappearance be linked to her writing which has moved in a new, darker, direction, following her interest in the story of a convicted serial killer? Or has she simply decided to disappear like Agatha Christie?
Her friend, Naomi Richards, decides to investigate and discovers that Joy’s disappearance is more menacing and leads her and journalist Sandra Parry into uncovering a conspiracy involving murder, intrigue, and trafficking.
