I am over the moon to share with you the cover and title of my latest book!

It’s called HUSH HUSH and I’m back in my home town of Stoke-on-Trent again. 


Isn’t it just amazing! The image in the background is one of my hometown at night. I’ll be sharing more about that soon. 

So, I guess you’ll want to know what it’s about?

A gripping new series from million-copy bestseller Mel Sherratt

A killer is on the loose, attacking people in places they feel most safe: their workplaces, their homes. It’s up to DS Grace Allendale to stop the murders, and prove herself to her new team.

All clues lead to local crime family the Steeles, but that’s where things get complicated. Because the Steeles aren’t just any family, they’re Grace’s family. Two brothers and two sisters, connected by the violent father only Grace and her mother escaped.

To catch the killer, Grace will have to choose between her team and her blood. But who do you trust, when both sides are out to get you?

An unforgettable thriller that fans of MARTINA COLE and CARA HUNTER won’t be able to put down.

When is it out, I hear you say? Well, publication is set for 18 October and you can preorder both the ebook and the paperback versions. Although I am aware it will be available on other platforms, here’s a link to it on Amazon for now.

I have very much enjoyed writing HUSH HUSH and I’m almost finished with the draft of the next book in the series,which will quickly follow in April 2019.  A huge thanks to my publisher Avon, who have done me proud!

    Great cover Mel,

    I won’t give a spoiler away as I’m a Stoke local. Lets just say its not too far from the statue of certain famous canal engineer. I was there the other week on one of my walks.

    To be honest, I was wondering why you hadn’t used a Stoke image on any of your other books before? There’s are so many atmospheric locations, from derelict factories, to baron staffs moorlands/peaks. My new book will have a S-O-T pic on it when its finally ready. Been a long, expensive journey, and a real baptism of fire working with freelance editors.

    I’ll look forward to reading HUSH HUSH, when its out. The cover is bang on trend, with the distressed silhouette female image, and atmospheric lighting. The red glow suggests there’s going to be blood spilt; which I’m sure there will be. Gives it a real contemporary police thriller feel.

    Wishing you every success with the HUSH HUSH
