Ruth Carrington is the pen-name, for this series, of crime and thriller writer Michael Hartland. In writing the Alison Hope novels, he has been grateful for advice from many people who work in the police and the courts. Several judges and barristers - often women in a man's world like Alison - were particularly helpful in sharing their experience. So were some of their clients. Dead Fish is being adapted for television.
