From "one of Britain's finest novelists": A tender and terrifying collection of novels about women on the brink of salvation and the edge of disaster (The Sunday Telegraph).

Three seductive tales of psychological suspense from a writer who "penetrates the deepest corners of the female psyche" (The Mail on Sunday).

The Private Parts of Women: Inis has run away from her husband and children - and the rest of her suburban life in London - and moved into a small flat in the inner city of Sheffield. Her neighbor is eighty-four-year-old Trixie Bell, a hymn-singing veteran of the Salvation Army. But beneath Trixie's unassuming exterior lies a very different personality. Three very different personalities - one of which is homicidal.

"A gripping read . . . from one of Britain's finest novelists." - The Sunday Telegraph

Partial Eclipse: In solitary confinement, Jennifer knows she isn't the first in her family to be convicted of a crime. Centuries earlier, the unmarried Peggy Maybee was arrested for trying to steal a peacock so she could give its beautiful feathers to her infant son, Samuel. As Jennifer and Peggy's parallel lives unfold, long-held secrets are revealed, including the truth about the crime that ultimately landed Jennifer in prison.

"Brilliant . . . seductive and assured." - The Sunday Times

Now You See Me:

If she doesn't let anyone in, she can't fall. Then Doggo shows up. A fugitive who committed a violent crime, he needs Lamb's help to stay off the radar. He also needs her in other ways - even after he learns her terrible secret.
