Rachel Rhys is the pen-name of a successful psychological suspense author. A Dangerous Crossing is her debut novel under this name. The story is inspired by a real diary which the author discovered by accident while helping her mother move house. It was written with care and attention by a servant girl who travelled from England to Australia on a cruise liner in the late 1930s. 

Rachel Rhys lives in North London with her family, including a much-loved dog.

Fatal Inheritance has all the ingredients of my favourite Agatha Christie novels: a dazzling setting, colourful cast and a mystery that kept me guessing until the last page. I couldn’t put it down.

With a dash of Agatha Christie and a nod to Zelda Fitzgerald, Rachel Rhys' historical mystery is simply gorgeous. The late 1940s Cote d'Azur setting is a character in its own right - one that will have you yearning to sip a gin fizz while watching the sun sink into the Mediterranean
