A great read. Sisters of Treason totally transports the reader to the Tudor court, with all its tensions and games
Katherine Webb, author of The Legacy
The research and historical detail are impeccable . . . and fans will enjoy this evocation of Elizabeth’s tumultuous court
A glamorous tale peopled by warrior poets, flamboyant courtiers and shameless loves, it is also sharp, perceptive and dramatic Sunday Express
Fremantle on creative process: For me writing is more craft than art; it is something you teach yourself to do and it improves with practice. Certainly there are character traits that suggest a propensity for the craft, all rather dull, I’m afraid: discipline, a desire for solitude, swottiness and the ability to consume vast quantities of tea and toast, because when you are on a roll the last thing you want to do is come over all Nigella.

A slickly plotted, whip smart thriller – genuinely chilling and totally compulsive Sunday Mirror
[A] chilling psychological thriller . . . a tense, claustrophobic marriage of secrets, tequila shots and shotguns
Sunday Express
Toxic friendships, an isolated house, a dark snowy wood . . . Everyone’s worst nightmare, and the perfect ingredients for this tense, terrifying novel Clare Mackintosh
This is one of the hottest crime debuts around, one that does for friendship what Gone Girl did for marriage Netgalley
Ware on writing process: I love the ideas stage, that point where you’re nudging at an idea and letting it take shape. It’s like an unscratched lottery ticket – it could be the most wonderful book ever written. It’s like being in the early stages of a love affair – full of possibility.

The Polar Bear Killing – Michael Ridpath
When a polar bear is sighted in a sleepy Icelandic fishing village, then shot dead by local policeman Constable Halldór, it triggers a debate in the local community. Was Halldór a hero for killing the bear, or should the animal have been protected? Animal rights activists in the area see the constable as a villain, and when days later the dead body of Halldór is discovered at a remote beauty spot, the activists are immediately under suspicion. As Sergeant Magnus Ragnarsson and his colleague Detective Vigdís Audardóttir begin to investigate the policeman’s murder, they soon discover that things are not as clear-cut as might first appear. By degrees, Magnus and Vigdís are drawn into this small and complex community – one riven with rivalries and grudges – in search of a deadly killer . . .
