Come to the party!!

Let’s lift the curtain on this party!
Come along to the launch of my latest book – THE SIXTH WINDOW – and the seventh outing for everyone’s favourite detective, DCI Tom Douglas. In an exciting new twist, I will be coming to you LIVE by video – technology permitting – so get your questions ready!

I’m so happy to invite you to the launch of THE SIXTH WINDOW, which will be available on Amazon from 21st February. Please join me for an online party on Facebook to celebrate its release.

Throughout the afternoon and early evening (GMT) there will be competitions and prizes. You will be able to display your knowledge of Hitchcock in Dial M for Murderously Good Fun; my hometown of Manchester gets its very own music scene quiz and in addition there will be a hitlist of killer songs to get us all up and dancing!

And forget Goody Bags – as always, we have Baddy Bags stuffed with rewards for the quiz and questions queens – and kings!

We’ll be focused on nibbles to keep our strength up during the day before we mix up a well-deserved cocktail to start the evening with a bang – we’ll offer suggestions and hope that you can top them.

Click HERE to visit the party event page, and select JOIN, then just dip in and out as you wish throughout the day. We’ll be online from 2pm to 5pm, and then again from 7pm until 9pm.

I’d love to see you there as every party is only as good as the people who come along so this one should be FABULOUS!



The truth hurts. But lies are deadly.


After eighteen months of grieving for her husband Bernie, killed in a horrific hit and run accident, Natalie Gray has found love with her husband’s best friend – Ed Cooper – and has moved herself and fifteen-year-old daughter, Scarlett, into his home. But Natalie begins to suspect Ed has a dark side – and even darker intentions.

Desperate to get her daughter to a place of safety, she and Scarlett move to a new home that holds secrets of its own. But has removing Scarlett from one potential threat placed her in far greater danger?

DCI Tom Douglas is also chasing the truth, as his investigation into the suicide of a teenage girl draws him ever closer to Natalie and Scarlett. But will he be too late to protect them from the peril they face, or from the truths that will tear their lives apart?
