About the authors
Jessie Keane's debut novel Dirty Game went straight in at no 1 in the Bookseller's Heatseeker Charts. She is the author of a number of crime bestsellers featuring Annie Carter, head of a London gang family. Ruthless is the latest in the series and is set London and Ireland. As many reviewers have said - if you like Martina Cole, you'll love Jessie Keane.
Laura Wilson's novels have been shortlisted twice for the CWA Gold Dagger and her first novel in the DI Stratton series won the Ellis Peters Award. The Riot, the latest book featuring DI Stratton takes place in the powder-keg setting of Notting Hill, 1958. Laura is the Guardian's crime reviewer and lives in London.
William Shaw was offered his first job in music journalism by Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys on Smash Hits in 1984. He wrote for over twenty years on music, popular culture and sub-culture for the Face, Arena, the Observer and the New York Times. A Song from Dead Lips is set in London at the height of the swinging sixties. It is his first crime novel and the start of a new series.
Elly Griffiths was born in London. She read English at King's College, London and worked in publishing for many years. Her crime novels feature Dr Ruth Galloway, a forensic archaeologist. The series is in development with BBC TV. Elly lives near Brighton with her husband and two sons.
