Welcome to my website.

I write crime novels, non-fiction , journalism and book reviews.

My books were first published in the UK, but most have appeared in the USA, been translated into other languages and are available in large print or audio format. I have also written many newspaper features, interviews, book reviews and travel articles, broadcast on TV and radio and appeared at book fairs and festivals. At present I’m reviewing crime fiction for the monthly magazine, The Literary Review.

You can also read some of my books on your e-reader.

Tamara Hoyland is back!

25 years since her last appearance (in Faith, Hope and Homicide) she reappears in my new novel. Married to Dr Alastair Hope, she has three sons and a senior archaeological job, but behind the respectable facade of a wife, mother and busy professional there is still the quick-thinking adventurer who first appeared in Funeral Sites.
