Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Interplay between two cases makes for an exciting read and the continuing personal storyline of the characters adds depth to this gripping and fascinating whodunit and why. Itâs London based, swinging from gangland grit to the high echelons of the House of Lords, wonderful contrast in a very fine novel. Itâs actually the seventh story to feature barrister Trish Maguire and carries a strong message about corruption in the authorities. Natasha gets better with each book, she is well worth investigation. Do try her.

Synopsis

Gagged and Bound by Natasha Cooper

Distinguished biographer Beatrice Bowman is being sued for libel by a new member of the House of Lords for implicating him in a thirty-year-old terrorist outrage. At the other end of the legal spectrum, a family of South London villains gags and suffocates those who try to expose their secrets. And Inspector Caro Lyalt has to decide what to do with information from a whistle-blower that could ruin a colleague's career - or her own. Caught in the middle of it all is barrister Trish Maguire.

Reviews

“Trish Maguire is a heroine for our times.” ---Val McDermid Praise for Natasha Cooper and her mysteries “Natasha Cooper is a fiercely intelligent writer with a hotline to the darker side of modern life.” --- Crime Time “Trish is an engaging character, warm and human, and well drawn.” ---Donna Leon, The Sunday Times

Keep Me Alive

“Gripping.” --- Publishers Weekly

A Place of Safety “Cooper excels at depicting the effects of terror on the weak and the strong; happily, Trish is one of the latter.” --- Kirkus Reviews “A dark and savage story with a deviously clever plot.” --- Booklist


About the Author

Natasha Cooper

An ex-publisher, past Chair of the Crime Writers' Association, journalist, broadcaster and lifelong Londoner, Natasha Cooper is the author of, among many others, KEEP ME ALIVE, PREY TO ALL and OUT OF THE DARK. In 2002 she was shortlisted for the Dagger in the Library.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on KAREN TAYLOR...

British author Natasha Cooper introduces this new character, a forensic psychologist, in NO ESCAPE. Dark psychological tones and tortured relationships define the feisty character who proves a worthy addition to the ranks of complex heroines with a dark past, as she comes to probe the mind of a psychopath in an Isle of Wight prison. Cooper previously wrote the Trish Maguire series, with a female lawyer at the helm, also worth looking out for.
