Review quote

Rachel Rhys should be on everyone's summer reading list * CLARE MACKINTOSH * With a dash of Agatha Christie and a nod to Zelda Fitzgerald, Rachel Rhys' historical mystery is simply gorgeous. The late 1940s Cote d'Azur setting is a character in its own right - one that will have you yearning to sip a gin fizz while watching the sun sink into the Mediterranean * KATE RIORDAN * I am racing though this delicious thriller set on the French Riviera in 1948. Rachel Rhys really is a natural successor to Patricia Highsmith. Out July, put it on preorder now so you don't forget. * SARRA MANNING * Deadly secrets, dazzling sunshine - utterly seductive. This book is a total joy * LUCY DAWSON * Atmospheric, totally absorbing and joyfully original * JANE FALLON *

About Rachel Rhys

Rachel Rhys is the pseudonym of psychological thriller writer Tammy Cohen. Her debut, Dangerous Crossing, was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick and was followed by Fatal Inheritance and Island of Secrets. Rachel's historical fiction focuses on exotic locations and dark mysteries but her protagonists travel emotionally as well as geographically, pushing to expand the limited horizons available to women of their era and, in the process, discovering who they really are.
She lives in North London, with her three (allegedly) grown up children and her neurotic rescue dog.
