Mel Sherratt


Mel Sherratt has sold over 1.5 million books. She is the author of  thirteen novels so far: police procedurals, psychological thrillers and fiction with a punch – or grit-lit, as she calls it.

She lives in Stoke-on-Trent and her latest book is Liar Liar, book 3 in her DS Grace Allendale series.

The truth can be a dangerous thing…

When a young boy falls from a balcony in a block of flats, DS Grace Allendale witnesses the shocking aftermath of the tragic event. But strangely, no one will admit to seeing anything – and the parents will only tell the police that it was an accident.

Determined to sort the truth from the lies, Grace is thrown into a case that takes her to the darkest corners of the criminal world – and strikes closer to home than she could have ever imagined…
