It all starts, as these things sometimes do, with a dead man.He was a neighbour, not someone Abby knew well, but still, finding a body when you only came over to borrow a tin of tomatoes, that comes as a bit of a shock.At least, it should.And now she can't shake the feeling that if she hadn't gone into Simon's flat, if she'd had her normal Wednesday night instead, then none of what happened next would have happened. And she would never have met Melody Black . . .Wild and witty, searing and true, THE MIRROR WORLD OF MELODY BLACK is about the fine line that separates normal from not - and how life can spin, very swiftly, out of control.

'A gripping tale of secrets, revenge and obsession, masterfully done.' Guardian'I really loved it - couldn't put it down!' Sophie Hannah'Everything you want from a psychological thriller' Good HousekeepingGripping and chilling, with a killer twist, THE BURNING AIR proves that Erin Kelly is one of Britain's best suspense writers.Of course it was love for my children, love for my son, that caused me to act as I did. It was a lapse of judgement. If I could have foreseen the rippling aftershocks that followed I would have acted differently, but by the time I realised the extent of the consequences, it was too late.The MacBrides have always gone to Far Barn in Devon for Bonfire Night, but this year everything is different. Lydia, the matriarch, is dead; Sophie, the eldest daughter, is desperately trying to repair a crumbling marriage; and Felix, the youngest of the family, has brought a girlfriend with him for the first time. The girl, Kerry, seems odd in a way nobody can quite put their finger on - but when they leave her looking after Sophie's baby daughter, and return to find both Kerry and the baby gone, they are forced to ask themselves if they have allowed a cuckoo into their nest . . .See what readers are saying about this brilliant book'A firecracker of a book' Amazon reviewer 'The book was well written, well plotted and utterly absorbing. Highly recommend!' Goodreads reviewer 'This was a riveting read.' Amazon reviewer 'This was the first novel of Erin Kelly's that I have read and all I can say is that I am stunned at her brilliance' Goodreads reviewer'Tautly plotted, well written and as ever, killer twists throughout. Highly recommend.' Amazon reviewer
