If you haven’t read any of these cracking crime novels from a local RH writer than why not?

Are you a crime novel nut? If you haven’t read RH author Niki Mackay yet and you enjoy books in the Gone Girl tradition then check her out.

Niki, a self-confessed bookworm studied performing arts at the BRIT School, Cryodon, before turning her talented hand to writing. She is the proud author of three crime novels.

 Set in Kingston-on-Thames, her first novel: I, Witness was published in 2018 and received rave reviews. We meet P.I . Madison Attalee, a likeable protagonist , who is tasked with proving the innocence of Kate Reynolds, imprisoned for murdering her best friend six years previously.

The book deals with gritty issues, alcoholism, domestic abuse and parental grief without becoming an issue led novel. It is absorbing and well-paced. If you need further proof then look at some of these testimonials on Amazon:

An absolutely gripping thriller founded on the horror of familial abuse and a great, flawed, female PI. There will be more Madison Attalee, I hope. (Dame Jenni Murray)

Totally engaging, fast-paced and edgy … completely captivating. I, Witness kept me guessing till the very end. Pick this book up if you’re after a page-turner with attitude.’ Elle Croft, author of The Guilty Wife

‘A cracking thriller and a great female protagonist.’ C.J. Tudor, author of Sunday Times Bestseller The Chalk Man
