Clare Chase writes mysteries and her first three novels were published by Choc Lit. In December 2017 she signed a three-book deal with Bookouture for a new crime series set in Cambridge. The opening book, Murder in the Marshes, will publish in July 2018. The mystery follows investigative journalist Tara Thorpe as she teams up with Detective Garstin Blake to solve the murder of a young female professor at Cambridge University. The case takes them through the dark underbelly of Cambridge and in to the murky fens that surround the centuries-old city. The second and third books in the series are scheduled for publication in late 2018/early 2019.

After graduating from London University with a degree in English Literature, Clare moved to Cambridge
