The awards ceremony is on October 25th, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for then along with my Dutch publisher AmboAnthos. A big thank you here to my foreign rights agent Therese Coen for making all this possible.

The Shadow Man

A mother goes missing, a 12 year old girl is kidnapped from school.  Dr Connie Woolwine, American forensic profiler has to find their kidnapper before it's too late, knowing that he's killed before and that he'll kill again. But how do you catch a killer who is already dead?


These Lost & Broken Things

How dangerous is a woman with nothing left to lose? Powerful historical fiction novel set in London between 1891 and 1907, in the era of the Suffragettes against the backdrop of extreme poverty and social injustice.


Perfect Kill

Bart had never heard himself scream before. It was terrifying. Perfect for fans of Val McDermid and Stuart MacBride. Set in the backstreets of Paris and in those part of Edinburgh tourists never visit, exploring themes of human trafficking and organ harvesting, this book is a rollercoaster ride of terror.

“Timely, anger-inducing and very powerful - it's excellent.”
