“Lacey Flint, a woman with more secrets than Victoria’s flagship lingerie store, walked the long, high, carpeted corridor and paused at the door of Apartment 5b. In the last couple of years she’d swum through the sewers of London, tackled terrorists on the Thames, hunted down a Jack the Ripper copycat and slit her own wrists. Today would be something else.”
Any Lacey Flint fans out there? The Corpse In the Copse, a Lacey Flint tale, will feature in the second Crime Club anthology of short stories by my fellow Killer Women. Other contributing authors include Sarah Hilary, Elly Griffiths, Julia Crouch, Erin Kelly, Laura Wilson and Jane Casey.
Mark Billingham called it, ‘…a killer collection of dark and devious tales.’ Linwood Barclay agreed, saying, ‘a lot of women have terrified me over the years, but none quite like these.’ SJ Watson said,’This mix of playfully twisted, macabre tales showcases the Killer Women at the top of their game. I loved it.’
Blade sharp and pared to the bone, these original stories by bestselling, award winning female crime writers will lure you to the dark side
