Clare Chase writes classic mysteries. Her aim is to take readers away from it all via some armchair sleuthing in atmospheric locations.

Her debut novel was shortlisted for Novelicious’s Undiscovered Award, as well as an EPIC award post-publication, and was chosen as a Debut of the Month by LoveReading. Murder in the Marshes (Tara Thorpe 1) was shortlisted for an International Thriller Writers award.

I'm currently writing a new series featuring obituary writer, Eve Mallow, but I might go back to Tara one day. I really enjoyed writing about her and Blake.

I’ve loved every book in this series but I think this one might be my favourite yet, despite the stiff competition! The characters stay fresh, the mystery was gripping and the setting is gloriously creepy. Highly recommended.
