What is it about?

A missing barrister, a severed thumb and fat chance of finding out the truth.

Ella Fitzwilliam’s world is about to spiral out of control. She’s not cut out to be a private investigator. With little or no aptitude for the job, she’s been sent undercover to expose the hidden lives of two men who meet nearly every week at Buxham’s – a private members’ club where portions are large and secrets are held in strictest confidence.

One of those men is Harry Drysdale, a defence barrister, and the other is Marcus Carver, an eminent surgeon with a tarnished past and much to lose. Ella knows he has unhealthy appetites, she’s sure he’s feeding his perverted habits and putting his female patients at risk but she has to prove it.

When Harry Drysdale goes missing, Konrad Neale TV journalist tries to reveal the truth behind the lies, but some of the secrets start to reveal themselves… and they are big.

 

Who am I?

I worked for the NHS for nearly thirty years, twenty of those within mental health services, at the front line, where I eventually became the manager of a countywide community service for people experiencing their first episode of psychosis. Much to my frustration, my heart decided to develop an electrical fault, and my much loved career juddered to a halt. Not one for thumb twiddling, I took up position in front of a computer with a plan to write a set of clinical guidelines for assessment of psychosis, but instead a story, which had been lurking in my mind for several years, came tumbling out. Since then I have continued to write and the stories just keep coming.

What else do I do?:

Workshops at local libraries, pubs and clubs in support of local writers and keen readers. Talks, the occasional local BBC radio guest appearance, blogs and articles – mostly about crime writing, but also making use of my years of experience to inform readers and writers about  the difference between mental illness experiences and actions taken by characters because of certain personality traits. The list continues to grow…
