"A great plot that unfolds in the idyllic island of Jersey in the Channel Islands. Clayton has a very refreshing writing style and apart from putting in a number of well placed nuances and unexpected plot twists that kept me guessing until the end, also provided an insight into the daily life of the wealthy in Jersey. This was done while also making it clear there is another less privileged side to life there. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, couldn't put it down and wish it were longer. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Meet the Author

I was born in Scotland but have lived in the Channel Island of Jersey for most of my life. An avid reader, I've been writing for some time but decided to get serious a few years back. My first novel, Blood In The Sand, was published in 2015. I'm currently working on a second book featuring DCI Jack Le Claire.

I work in finance and love what I do but adore the escapism of writing, of crafting stories and characters and putting them into and, hopefully, getting them out of peril.

I live with my husband and three cats in a home overlooking the sea.
