Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Tess Gerritsen began her career writing romantic fiction and this, one of her early ones (published in 1993 in America) has that feel to it. It’s fun and it is interesting to see how she has developed, but if you are expecting a gritty chiller this is not it. It’s cosy crime with a bit of a spark. If you are a fan you really should read it for interest sake; if you enjoy romantic crime, you’ll love it.

Comparison: Tami Hoag, Mary Higgins Clark.

If you like Tess Gerritsen you might also like to read books by Mo Hayder, Karen Rose and P J Tracy.

Synopsis

Presumed Guilty by Tess Gerritsen

Guilty until proven innocent. Miranda Wood arrives home to a dark, cold cottage - and a man, stabbed to death, lying in her bed. Miranda is the obvious suspect, and she looks even guiltier when her bail is paid by an anonymous donor. As Miranda fights to clear her name, she unearths a murky history of blackmail, corruption and scandal. As she gets closer to the truth, it becomes clear that someone else wants to kill Miranda - someone with a personal reason for wanting her out of the way...

While on maternity leave, she began to write fiction. On a whim, she submitted a literary short story to Honolulu Magazine’s statewide fiction contest¯and won first place!

In 1987, Tess`s first novel was published. She has now written 19 novels and is a Sunday Times bestseller. She also wrote a screenplay, ""Adrift,"" which aired as a 1993 CBS Movie of the Week starring Kate Jackson.

Having lived in Hawaii, she now resides in Camden, Maine, with her husband and two sons.
