Cathy is riding high in her brand-new job at a (surprisingly bitchy) top London advertising agency working with best friend Rosa. But when Rosa’s pregnancy goes amiss and enemies sabotage her new career, she finds herself leading a chaotic double life of lies and deception, hiding a shameful secret from all, especially husband Declan who appears in the throes of a nervous breakdown.
Meanwhile she’s agreed to unmask the notorious Crouch End Creeper, a burglar terrorizing their neighborhood.

Ellie Campbell is a pseudonym for sisters, Pam Burks and Lorraine Campbell. The two youngest of four girls, the ‘wee ones’ as they were called were raised in Scotland until as teens their parents moved the family down to Sussex. From high school, they went straight to working in London, armed with marginal secretarial skills and dedicated themselves to exploring the party scene when not taking off a year or two to travel the world.
Pam now lives in Surrey with her husband and three children where she divides her time between writing, family, her allotment, a part-time job and chasing down her writing partner and big sister, Lorraine. After leaving her publishing job for a life of adventure, Lorraine spent many happy years jaunting around South and Central America, Polynesia, India etc, lived for three years in France and then sailed the Caribbean as the world’s worst charter cook. She finally settled in Colorado with a husband, three horses and a dog.
