My second novel, Amazon bestseller Her Turn To Cry, was also published by Harper Collins and released in July 2016.

London, 1965. Top model Joycie Todd lives a glittering life with photographer Marcus Blake. But her childhood tells a different story… 

When she was eleven, Joycie’s mother disappeared. Run away with another man, so HerTurnToCry (1)everyone says. But Joycie can’t forget the thumps she heard in the night, or the bloodstained rug hidden under the bed. A rug that was gone the next day.

Twelve years later, Joycie has left her past behind. But when an old friend dies, Joycie is left a letter beseeching her to find out the truth. Unable to keep the door locked any longer, Joycie sets out to discover why her mother left her – if she ever really did.

As she travels to the shabby seaside towns of her childhood, Joycie soon finds that it’s not just her mother who vanished all those years ago. Joycie knows the disappearances are connected, she just doesn’t know how. But there’s someone out there who does – and they will do anything to keep it buried.

I talk about my research for Her Turn To Cry over at the Killer Reads Blog where you can also read the first chapter.

CoverRevisedMy first novel, Mindsight, is a psychological thriller published by Harper Collins Killer Reads.

Also an Amazon bestseller, it was chosen as a Sunday Express best summer read in July 2016  http://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/books/686792/Holiday-book-selection-July-2016

Five years ago, Clare killed her family – her husband, her father, and her son. While she has no memory of the car accident, she cannot refute the evidence of drugs in her system. She has accepted her guilt, and served her time.

Now, released from prison, all she wants is to be reconciled with her remaining son, 13-year-old Tommy. But he demands to know the full truth of what happened on that fateful night.

Probing into the past, however, turns out to be a dangerous exercise, threatening not only Clare’s sanity, but ultimately her life…

One thought on “Welcome

  1. Well done Chris!!
    Fantastic read, I was totally absorbed by Her Deadly Secret, couldn’t put it down, drawn in by the first chapter. The characters, as always in your books, worm their way into your head. I needed to find out more and more about them as the twists and turns created suspense and intrigue. Wow great book.
    Can’t wait for next one.
