More About the Author

Cath Staincliffe is an established novelist, radio playwright and the creator of ITV's hit series, Blue Murder, starring Caroline Quentin as DCI Janine Lewis. Cath's books have been short-listed for the British Crime Writers Association best first novel award and for the Dagger in the Library and selected as Le Masque de l'Année. In 2012 Cath won the CWA Short Story Dagger for Laptop, sharing the prize with Margaret Murphy with her story The Message. Both stories featured in Best Eaten Cold, a Murder Squad anthology. Cath was shortlisted again with Night Nurse in 2014. Cath's Sal Kilkenny private eye series features a single-parent sleuth working the mean streets of Manchester. Trio, a stand-alone novel moved away from crime to explore adoption and growing up in the 1960s, inspired by Cath's own experience. Cath's latest stand alone book, Letters To My Daughter's Killer, exposes the aftermath of violent crime for an ordinary family and explores fundamental questions of crime and punishment and whether it is possible to forgive. Letters To My Daughter's Killer was selected for Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club in 2014 and will be featured on ITV3s Crime Thriller Club. Ruthless is Cath's third novel based on the popular Scott & Bailey UK TV series. Cath is one of the founding members of Murder Squad - a group of Northern crime writers who give readings, talks and signings around the country. Cath was born in Bradford, Yorkshire, UK and now lives in Manchester, Lancashire with her family. You can follow her on Twitter, @CathStaincliffe, which she does when she should be busy writing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 18 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Cath's books really do get better with each year.
I've been reading all the Sal Kilkenny titles and it is clear how the quality of the writing improves with age.
Set in Manchester, like most of her books, so great for any Mancunians who will recognise the many places which she describes with accuracy.

This book deals mainly with a Brother looking to find his missing Sister, a mystery which Sal gets to the bottom of but not with the result either of them were expecting.

A great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently good reads- A safe holiday choice 6 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Sal Kilkenny books - and this is no exception. I really like the way the author weaves in the everyday aspects of life- being a single mum, having to think of meals, trying to stay fit around what are always fairly tight plot lines which keep up a good pace. Her work as a private detective has plausibility -in this case finding a missing person and working for the council observing anti-social behaviour on a housing estate.

5.0 out of 5 stars real life, and so sound! 4 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Cath Staincliffe paints such a true picture of my home town Manchester that it hurts - and still manages to raise a smile from me as I recognise the good bits as well. A sound plot that doesn't insult your intelligence, plenty of sub-plots that complement the main theme, and characters so real you start thinking you actually know them. She doesn't stuff the political issues down your throat, but they do catch in it. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 16 Oct 2013
By Hazel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First Sal Kilkenny book by Cath Staincliffe that I have read and it certainly wont be the last. Very down to earth story of a private detective who is also a single Mum. Quite harrowing in parts and very emotive.

An interesting look at the life of a private detective, the unravelling of a missing person case and the consequences of racial hatred.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feisty Female Investigator 24 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like Cath Staincliffes books as I find her main character very good. Most women can relate to her problems in trying to juggle childcare and work, never mind a social life. The stories are also interesting and are well thought out and presented.

I read very quickly and this although well written was not a memorable story.

Had to check back to bring it to mind.
