No Place To Hide


‘Clever, convincing and wickedly twisty – highly recommended’ MICK HERRON

‘An intelligent and inventive thriller that grips to the very last page’ J.P. DELANEY

‘Compelling, relentless and genuinely frightening’ SIMON RUSSELL BEALE


A spellbinding tale of psychological suspense, weaving together the dark web, murder, and blackmail…

You can shut the doors.
Adam lives a picture-perfect life: happy marriage, two young children, and a flourishing career as a doctor. But Adam also lives with a secret. Hospital CCTV, strangers’ mobile phones, city traffic cameras – he is convinced that they are watching him, recording his every move. All because of something terrible that happened at a drunken party when he was a student.

You can close the blinds.
Only two other people knew what happened that night. Two people he’s long left behind. Until one of them, Clio – Adam’s great unrequited love – turns up on his doorstep, and reignites a sinister pact twenty-four years in the making…

But once it begins, there’ll be no place to hide.

No Place To Hide will be published in April 2023

Hackpen Hill


A coded message. A Barbaric death. And the search for truth in a world of lies. An intelligent and twisty thriller set in rural Wiltshire.

Brilliantly plotted and original with not so much a twist as a seismic shifting of the ground under your feet. Amazing.”
– Rosamund Lupton, bestselling author of Three Hours

“A kind of Wiltshire Da Vinci Code, with crop circles, mathematical equations and shadowy figures from Porton Down. A real page-turner written with beguiling wit.”
– Tom Bradby, bestselling author of  Secret Service

“Impeccably researched… an unusual mystery told with exceptional skill”
Daily Mail

The Man on Hackpen Hill is now out in paperback.

How do you know who to trust…
…when you don’t even know who you are?
You are outside your front door.
There are strangers in your house.
Then you realise.
You can’t remember your name.

“An absorbing novel full of unpredictable twists,
topped by a savage climax”
– Marcel Berlins, The Times

Five years ago, Rosa walked to the pier in the dead of
night, looked into the swirling water, and jumped.
She was a brilliant Cambridge student who
had just lost her father.
Her death was tragic, but not unexpected.
Was that what really happened? 

“Cunning, captivating and creepy
– a beautifully written thriller”
– JP Delaney, The Girl Before




She used to be good at faces.
So good they paid her.
If you were living a lie, she would see it in your eyes.
She could spot an impostor at a hundred yards.
And she only had to pass you once in the street
to remember your face forever.

“I doubt many other psychological thrillers published
this year will be as propulsive and fun”
– The Telegraph
