'Taut and gripping, with a pace that never slows, From The Ashes is a master-class in police procedurals.' * Andrea Mara, Sunday Times bestselling author of All Her Fault * 'Pacy, intelligent and so so satisfying. Another brilliant outing for Eve Hunter who is fast becoming my favourite detective. I can't get enough of Deborah Masson's writing.' * Marion Todd * 'Unmissable and addictive, Masson delivers beautifully crafted punches and red hot twists. Neatly plotted with some stunning characterisations, this is belter of a book.' * Helen Fields * 'It's clear that DI Eve Hunter in now one of Scotland's premier fictional detectives. Harrowing, absorbing – you won't put this down until the secret of the book's magic is revealed. A triumph for Deborah Masson.' * Denzil Meyrick * 'Bodies in a basement are always a great attention grabber, and from then on it's twists, turns and tension all the way. Terrific stuff!' * Dave Jackson *
Deborah Masson was born and bred in Aberdeen, Scotland. Always restless and fighting against being a responsible adult, she worked in several jobs including secretarial, marketing, reporting for the city’s freebie newspaper and a stint as a postie – to name but a few.Through it all, she always read crime fiction and, when motherhood finally settled her into being an adult (maybe even a responsible one) she turned her hand to writing what she loved. Deborah started with short stories and flash fiction whilst her daughter napped and, when she later welcomed her son into the world, she decided to challenge her writing further through online courses with Professional Writing Academy and Faber Academy, where she wrote her award-winning debut novel Hold Your Tongue, the first in the DI Eve Hunter series. Since then she has published two more books in the series, Out For Blood and From the Ashes.
