Fast, wickedly funny, hugely enjoyable

Sunday Mirror
on Dying for Christmas

Chilling, twisty and addictive. I finished the last few pages walking from the train station, bumping into people, because I couldn't put it down.

Julie Cohen (author of DEAR THING)
on Dying for Christmas

A smart, gripping story that we just couldn't stop reading - you won't believe the ending.

The Mirror on The War of the Wives

A must-read for fans of psychological crime thrillers. 

Herald Scotland
on When She Was Bad

It's witty, ludicrously melodramatic and psychologically perceptive.
