‘Exquisitely written, pitch-dark, unsettling’
Big thanks to Patricia Carswell and WI Life Magazine for this smashing review of Fragile in February’s issue.
On Friday 4 February, Fiona Cummins and I will be talking about secrets and survival in crime fiction, with a special focus on the importance of giving victims a voice.
Do join us in Brentwood at the Chicken & Frog bookshop, or online.
Full details are here.
It’s paperback publication day for Fragile! There’s a Director’s Cut deleted scene at the back, and the cover is beautiful enough to make a gorgeous gift.
Look out for it in your favourite indie bookshop, Waterstones, online via Amazon or Hive (which supports local indies) or with free shipping worldwide at The Book Depository.
Please spread the word to your reader friends!

I’m absolutely thrilled to find Fragile included on Ian Rankin’s Top Ten Books of 2021. I’ve been a fan of Ian’s books for as long as I can remember, so this beats Santa’s List, for me!
Of Fragile, Ian says, ‘ … shades of Ruth Rendell, Joe Orton and Daphne du Maurier in this provocative novel about a homeless woman taken in as a housekeeper but whose demons are not far behind.’
I’d recommend reading all of Ian’s book picks as they sound brilliant, and what better way to spend the Christmas period than reading?
On that note, I’d like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas, and a safe and peaceful New Year.
I’m thrilled to see Fragile named Book of the Month in the Bookseller, ahead of its paperback release in January 2022. You can preorder the paperback via the links here or from your local bookshop, or borrow it from your local library. If you’ve read it and enjoyed it, please drop me a line and let me know!
