I write psychological thrillers that focus on strong contemporary women who find themselves in unexpected circumstances, forced to face up to secrets and truths that have been locked away - either figuratively or literally.
My first novel, Grievous Angel, was published in 2005, followed by The Murder Ballad (2007) and Can't Let Go (2008). A fourth book, Irgendwann holt es dich ein, was published in Germany in 2011, translated by Sabine Schilasky.
"When I was 18 I killed a man and got away with it."
All these years, Beth Stephens has carefully built her life on a lie. Now, just when she finally thinks herself safe, her days filled with new friendships, a boyfriend and a steady job, everything starts to unravel.
Someone out there, someone who seems to be stalking her, following her every footstep, has prised open the terrible secret she has been hiding for years. And he is threatening to exact revenge . . .
"Like Jane Hill's two previous psychological thrillers, Can't Let Go is riveting and completely impossible to put down. It comes armed with a final twist that will make even the most canny readers gasp. I absolutely loved it." Sophie Hannah
"It's a fine read. A writer to watch." Peter Guttridge, The Observer
"Sustained tension.... It's sit up all night stuff." Carla McKay, The Daily Mail
"Hill's is a welcome new voice, confident and sassy, and, most importantly of all, she tells a great story." Mark Billingham
When Maeve O'Mara falls for music star Trey Ferguson, her life changes beyond recognition. After their impromptu wedding, Trey whisks her to his tiny home town deep in the Appalachian mountains. But when Maeve first lays eyes on her new home - a dilapidated old cabin in the middle of nowhere - she begins to feel uneasy.
Nothing quite matches up to what she's been led to expect and below the surface, a dark secret lies buried. The haunting sound of an old time country song triggers memories of a passionate and deadly love affair and an age-old crime that has never been resolved. Too late, Maeve realises that she is all alone in a strange country, sharing a life with a man she hardly knows . . .
"Prepare to be sucked in and swept away by this chilling whitewater rapid of a thriller." Cosmopolitan
"A second novel is something to be approached with trepidation, especially if the first one was well-received; will it, can it possibly, live up to the author's promise? The answer here is a resounding 'Yes!'" Tangled Web UK
"I love you, Nicky. I know it's love because it hurts like hell."
It's been twenty years since Justine Fraser last saw Nicky Bennet; twenty years since he abruptly took off for Hollywood.

But she also cannot forget the way he disappeared without a word of explanation.
Now reports have surfaced that Nicky has vanished again, leaving behind a cryptic note that Justine is sure is a message to her. She sets off on a journey to America, to the past, in search of Nicky. But what she will ultimately discover is the shocking and disturbing truth about her relationship with Nicky Bennet.
