Tightrope

‘A gripping page-turner of a plot’ ROZ WATKINS
‘A corking thriller’ ED JAMES

What happens when a private investigator ends up being the one uncovered?

Having lost everything after a failed marriage, Beverley Saunders now lodges in the basement flat of a house owned by her best friend Sophie and her husband, Tim. With Bev’s former glittering marketing career in the gutter, she begins to do investigative work for other wronged women, gathering dirt on philanderers, bosses and exes.

But when Beverley takes on the case of Sophie’s friend Angela, who is seeking to uncover grounds for divorce from her controlling husband, Jerry, the shadow Science Minister, she soon discovers that she isn’t the only one doing the investigating…

Beverley has a secret history she doesn’t want coming out – but will she manage to stay hidden long enough to give Angela the freedom she deserves?

Marnie Riches is back in this darkly comic thriller, perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers.

Reviews

'I absolutely loved Tightrope and hope there will be many more books in the series. Bev Saunders is my new favourite character, and definitely my favourite fictional PI - she's earthy, troubled, funny and ballsy in equal measures. Great stuff.'
Louise Voss
A hugely relatable, funny main character and gripping page-turner of a plot.
Roz Watkins, author of The Devil's Dice
I stayed up super-late last night racing to the end, hardly daring to breathe. Absolutely loved it.
Gill Paul, bestselling author of The Secret Wife
A corking thriller introducing a kick-ass private eye you'll really root for as she digs into a murky world filled with evil bastards. Dark but funny.
Ed James, author of Kill The Messenger
Featuring the intrepid and very human Bev Saunders, this thriller is destined for great things.
