Faith Martin has been writing for over 25 years and has had nearly 50 novels published. Born in Oxford, she has set most of her crime novels within sight of the 'dreaming spires'. And right now, Joffe Books are re-issuing all 17 of her DI Hillary Greene series in new updated editions!

As Joyce Cato, she writes more classically-inspired 'cosy' murder mysteries, so if you're a fan of red-herrings, amateur sleuths, and baffling murders to solve, these are the novels for you. And Joffe Books will also be bringing out this series as ebooks throughout 2018-19.

As Maxine Barry, her latest romance novels are now available from Corazon Books, with Imposters in Paradise, Heart of Fire (set in fabulous Hawaii) and The Lying Game now out.

It was far easier for someone like this to simply tell the truth. It required less effort. Hillary would have bet her first pay cheque — when she got it — that this woman was going to answer anything and everything put to her as honestly and as simply as she could hope for. ‘You used to work at Tesco didn’t you?
