The Taste of Ash – A psychological crime suspense novel

What is it like to be a victim? How do you move on from losing everything? How do you cope when someone is watching your every move and you have no idea who it is - or what they are going to do next?

When Zoë Graham’s flat burns down in an arson attack she loses everything. But the man in the flat downstairs comes off much worse and a murder investigation is launched. Who started the fire and why? And who was the intended victim? Soon Zoë has reason to wonder if it was her. Feeling like a refugee, all she wants is to get back to some sort of normality and move on with her life - but someone is determined that isn’t going to happen.
An unknown stalker sends Zoë’s life spiralling out of control and she doesn’t know which way to turn, or who she can trust.

Amazon Reviews

"Really gripping psychological drama; I genuinely couldn't put it down. The characters felt very normal to me - not always something accomplished in a suspense novel, where the characters can often be formulaic. I loved that they were ordinary people with typical lives who reacted to events like any one of us might..."

"Crime just ain't my genre, but I've made two exceptions recently: 'The Taste of Ash' and 'Gone Girl'. I've come to the conclusion, based on these two excellent novels, that psychological crime novels can be both satisfying and thought provoking..."
