Local Crime author Mari Hannah has written the Kate Daniels series and recently released her first standalone thriller 'The Silent Room'. This latest book has received outstanding reviews:

'A vivid new hero in this satisfyingly dark and tense thriller' The Independent

Voted by the Queen of Icelandic Crime Yrsa Sigurdardottir as one of her Best Books of 2015 for the Sunday Times Crime Club. Compelling characters, a gripping plot, superb pacing and heart, something many books in the genre sorely lack.

Mari is here in conversation with Jacky Collins.
