Isabelle Grey has published two novels in a new crime series set in Essex and featuring DI Grace Fisher – Good Girls Don’t Die and Shot Through The Heart. The third, The Special Girls, will be out in hardback and ebook in April 2017. The thrillers, described by The Sunday Times as combining ‘clever plot twists with a surprising delicacy of feeling’, take a hard-hitting look at the realities and corruptions of modern policing. The Grace Fisher books and Isabelle Grey’s two earlier novels of psychological suspense, Out of Sight and The Bad Mother (an Amazon No.1 bestseller in psychological suspense), are all published in paperback, ebook and audio by Quercus.
Isabelle also write screenplays for television crime drama, including The Bill, Wycliffe, Rosemary & Thyme, Midsomer Murders and, with Jimmy McGovern, the Bafta and International Emmy award-winning BBC series Accused.
A former non-fiction author (writing as Isabelle Anscombe) and journalist for national newspapers and magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Country Living and Psychologies, she has also taught screenwriting at Central Saint Martin’s and the Arvon Foundation.
Born within the sound of Bow Bells in London’s East End, Isabelle grew up in Manchester, lived for ten years on what was once a tidal island at the edge of the Romney Marsh, she now lives and works in north London.
