About the authors:

Rachel Abbott, the UK’s no.1 bestselling independent author, has sold over 2 million copies and is the 14th bestselling author of the last five years on Amazon’s Kindle, joining a list of some of the best-known authors of this century, including Gillian Flynn, and Lee Child. Kill Me Again, Abbott’s latest psychological thriller is set in Manchester, where she was born and raised. She now splits her time between Alderney in the Channel Islands and Italy.

Debbie Howells lives in West Sussex with her family. Having worked as cabin crew and a flying instructor, she spent the last five years running a successful wedding flower business, whilst also writing and self-publishing three novels. The Bones of You was her first novel published by Pan Macmillan.

Michelle Davies spent the formative years as a reporter on a local newspaper in Buckinghamshire and interviewed many relatives of serious victims during that time. The memory of one particular case, the murder of a teenager stabbed as he tried to break up a fight, stayed with her years later because his family felt they weren’t getting any support from the police and tensions ran high throughout the subsequent trial, which Michelle covered.
