Editorial Reviews

Review

‘Now and again, a character comes along that stays in your head long after the book has finished. Allie Shenton is that character. Mel Sherratt combines taut storytelling with excellent characterisation, resulting in a book I could not put down.’ —Angela Marsons, author of Silent Scream

About the Author

Mel Sherratt has been a self-described “meddler of words” ever since she can remember. After winning her first writing competition at the age of eleven, she has rarely been without a pen in her hand or her nose in a book.

Since successfully publishing Taunting the Dead and seeing it soar to the rank of #1 bestselling police procedural in the Amazon Kindle store in 2012, Mel has gone on to publish four more books in the critically acclaimed The Estate Series and a psychological thriller, Watching over You.

Mel was shortlisted for the Crime Writer’s Association Dagger in the Library Award 2014 and has written feature articles for The Guardian, the Writers and Artists website and Writers’ Forum Magazine, to name just a few. She regularly speaks at conferences, events and festivals.

She lives in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, with her husband and her terrier, Dexter (named after the TV serial killer, with some help from her Twitter fans), and makes liberal use of her hometown as a backdrop for her writing.

Her website is www.melsherratt.co.uk and you can find her on Twitter at @writermels.

I write dark fiction with an emotional pull. My novels take you to the heart of the crime. I write police procedurals, psychological suspense and crime dramas - fiction with a punch. Shortlisted for the prestigious CWA (Crime Writer's Association) Dagger in The Library Award, my inspiration comes from authors such as Ian Rankin, Martina Cole, Lisa Jewell, Mandasue Heller and Clare Mackintosh.

To date, I’ve sold 1.8 million books. All eighteen of my crime novels have been bestsellers, each one climbing into the Kindle UK top 100, and I've had several number ones. I've also had numerous Kindle All-star awards, for best read author and best titles.

My latest book, BROKEN PROMISES, is book four in the DETECTIVE ALLIE SHENTON SERIES. These books are part police procedural/part crime thriller. There have been three novels for years, the last one published in 2015, but recently I decided to add to the series. There will be more to come this year.

There are four books in THE ESTATE SERIES - a mix of psychological suspense and family life with a sprinkling of grit and a dash of menace - where drama meets crime. The books are available individually or the first three as a box set.

I have four standalone novels. THE LIFE SHE WANTS, TEN DAYS, THE LIES YOU TELL and WATCHING OVER YOU.

They are dark in places, light in places, and disturbing in places.

I have also written four books featuring DS Grace Allendale, HUSH HUSH being the first one, TICK TOCK the second, LIAR LIAR the third and the final one to finish the series, GOOD GIRL.

Finally, there are two books about DS EDEN BERRISFORD. She works in a community intelligence team and helps to gather information and intel for investigations. THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR is the first book, followed by DON'T LOOK BEHIND YOU. These books are based in the same setting as THE ESTATE SERIES.

I live in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, with my husband and terrier, Dexter (named after the TV serial killer) and make liberal use of my hometown as a backdrop for some of my books. You can find out more at my website www.melsherratt.co.uk or I'm on Twitter at @writermels
