Two Outstanding Authors

Fatal Legacy – Elizabeth Corley

When the managing director of a respectable firm dies in suspicious circumstances, his last will and testament throws the business and family into turmoil.

Alex’s wife Sally turns her sharp mind to the finances of the family business, finding startling irregularities, and when the firm’s accountant is brutally murdered DCI Andrew Fenwick is called in. As he begins to close in on the murderer, his child is abducted. Fenwick’s integrity is stretched to breaking point as he races against the clock to prevent more killings and save his child.

A gritty and contemporary crime novel from one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming authors, Fatal Legacy is part of a crime series featuring three other titles: Requiem Mass, Grave Doubts and Innocent Blood.

Living in London with husband and stepdaughter, Elizabeth Corley balances her passion for crime writing with her post as Chief Executive of European Business at a global investment company.

'Corley is a cunning plotter... Disturbing yet enthralling'
The Observer

'Convincing and chilling... an unusually good series of police procedurals. Highly recommended'
Literary Review

'Deeply unsettling almost to the final climax'
The Scotsman

Self Help – Edward Docx

Twins Gabriel and Isabella live with their partners in London and New York. But behind the facade of their settled lives lies a withheld truth.

Their father Nicholas, to whom they have not spoken for ten years, lives in a lavish apartment in Paris with his lover Alessandro. Their Russian mother finally returns to St Petersburg and in the aftershock of her sudden death, the twins finally recognise the effect of Nicholas’ cruelty on their adult lives.

Set in London, New York and St Petersburg, Self Help examines the fragility of truth. It explores with wit and humanity the damages wrought by deception, the strange honour of upholding pretence and the hope of redemption.

'Docx's ability to evoke the atmosphere of a city is almost Dickensian. Docx can place you in each heart-stopping moment, speed up and slow down time from one sentence to the next... the novel is masterful'
The Guardian

Self Help is Edward’s second novel. It has just won the prestigous Geoffrey Faber Prize for fiction and was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize. Edward was born in 1972 and lives in London.
