No Other Darkness (Marnie Rome 2)

It's here! Well, my advance copy is. And very beautiful it is, too. Spot-varnished title and so weighty, making that 'holding it in my hands for the first time' moment really special. Big thanks to the creative team at Headline who designed it so wonderfully. I love it!

Do come to the launch party at Foyles in Bristol on 22 April, if you can.

Published in the UK on 23 April, you can pre-order it here.

Lovely readers! You can bid to name a character in TASTES LIKE FEAR, Marnie Rome book 3, coming out in Spring 2016. The auction is to raise funds for a terrific cause, helping children and young people affected by cancer. The top bidder will also get to appear in my new book, or to pick a name for one of its characters, maybe a friend of Noah Jake's or an enemy for Marnie Rome, or (who knows) even the murderer. Do please get involved!
