Marnie Riches
You can find Marnie on BritCrime's Twitter and Facebook accounts this week.

Marnie Riches grew up on a rough estate in Manchester, aptly within sight of the dreaming spires of Strangeways prison. She swapped those for the spires of Cambridge University, gaining a Masters degree in Modern & Medieval Dutch and German.

She has been a punk, a trainee rock star, a pretend artist, a property developer and professional fundraiser. In her spare time, she likes to run, renovate houses and paint. Oh, and drinking. She likes a drink. And eating. She likes that too. Especially in exotic destinations.

The Girl Who Had No FearHer George McKenzie crime thrillers for adults were inspired, in part, by her own youth and time spent in The Netherlands as a student. The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die launched to great acclaim in early 2015, won The Patricia Highsmith Award for most exotic location in a novel at the Dead Good Reader Awards 2015 and went on to be an Amazon top 100 bestseller. The follow-up, The Girl Who Broke the Rules was in the Suspense top 50 for months and months, being heralded as "one of the best sequels ever" by readers and being voted by many book-bloggers as one of their top 10 reads of the year.

The Girl Who Had No Fear has just been released. Buy it today for only £2.99
