Happy holidays.

Before the mania begins - whether or not you celebrate Christmas - I'd like to welcome new visitors from home and abroad and take a moment to thank the many librarians, bloggers, booksellers and readers who have contacted me in 2015. You are truly generous. 

I haven't written a poem, short or long story, self-published a special ebook for Christmas or named my favourite books of the year - there simply hasn't been time. I have enjoyed receiving your emails, laughed out loud and ocassionally shed a tear reading your wonderful posts on social media. 

If I have not kept up with your news, it is not for the want of trying. My year has had its ups and downs, but it has been an amazing one professionally and there is more good news to come in the New Year. Many thanks if you have read and reviewed my books. Your support means everything. Mari x

What the press are saying about The Silent Room 

A vivid new hero in this satisfyingly dark and tense thriller. The Independent

Voted by the Queen of Icelandic Crime Yrsa Sigurdardottir as one of her Best Books of 2015 for the Sunday Times Crime Club. Compelling characters, a gripping plot, superb pacing and heart, something many books in the genre sorely lack. 

Taut storytelling and razor-sharp dialogue. The Mail

Named as one of Marie Claire's Best Thrillers of 2015: Read it on your commute and you'll be looking over your shoulder the whole way home.

High drama and thrills kept credible by well-drawn characters. Sunday Times Crime Club

Pacey stand-alone thriller . . . delicious twists and turns. S Magazine

A hard-as-nails standalone thriller. Peterborough Telegraph

The Sun: A rollercoaster ride involving corruption, surveillance and espionage as Ryan uncovers an international conspiracy of the highest order. 

Masterful plotting and superb characterisation. Could The Silent Room herald the start of a very special new crime series? Lancashire Evening Post.

I'd like to thank all of the above and the many crime bloggers who have reviewed the book.

Whatever you say to a publisher is confidential, right?

My confession is on the Pan Macmillan site. This is a fun post ahead of publication next week of THE SILENT ROOM. I hope you enjoy.

PS: No animals were hurt in the process of this Q&A.
