Synopsis

'An exquisite and shimmering read. I completely lost myself in Rhys's lovingly evoked 1940s French Riviera and was gripped by the slow-burn mystery. An essential summer read!' LISA JEWELL 'Rachel Rhys should be on everyone's summer reading list' CLARE MACKINTOSH 'With a dash of Agatha Christie and a nod to Zelda Fitzgerald, Rachel Rhys' historical mystery is simply gorgeous. The late 1940s Cote d'Azur setting is a character in its own right - one that will have you yearning to sip a gin fizz while watching the sun sink into the Mediterranean' KATE RIORDAN 'I am racing though this delicious thriller set on the French Riviera in 1948. Rachel Rhys really is a natural successor to Patricia Highsmith. Out July, put it on preorder now so you don't forget' SARRA MANNING 'Utterly enthralling; Rachel Rhys brilliantly evokes the shabby glamour and bruised hearts of the post-war Riviera, where everyone has a secret to hide. I adored it' JANE CASEY ******************** 1948: an English housewife trapped in a dull marriage escapes to the South of France to claim a mystery inheritance. But rivals to her unexplained fortune begin to emerge, and now they want her out of the way ... She didn't have an enemy in the world... until she inherited a fortune London 1948: Eve Forrester is trapped in a loveless marriage, in a gloomy house, in a grey suburb. Out of the blue, she received a solicitor's letter. A wealthy stranger has left her a mystery inheritance but in order to find out more, she must travel to the glittering French Riviera. Eve discovers her legacy is an enchanting villa overlooking the Mediterranean sea and suddenly, life could not be more glamorous. But while she rubs shoulders with film-stars and famous writers, under the heat of the golden sun, rivals to her unexplained fortune begin to emerge. Rivals who want her out of the way. Alone in paradise, Eve must unlock the story behind her surprise bequest - before events turn deadly... Reminiscent of a Golden Age mystery, Fatal Inheritance is an intoxicating story of dysfunctional families and long-hidden secrets, set against the razzle-dazzle and decadence of the French Riviera. *************************************** 'Deadly secrets, dazzling sunshine - utterly seductive. This book is a total joy' LUCY DAWSON 'Atmospheric, totally absorbing and joyfully original' JANE FALLON 'I absolutely loved this book. All the intrigue of Agatha Christie with the intelligence of Barbara Vine in the most glamorous of settings. Rhys writes like an exotic dream!' LIZ NUGENT 'Public service announcement; this book deserves to be massive. Can't tell you how hard and fast I fell for it. A stunningly beautiful, page turning feast of a novel' Colette McBeth

Rachel Rhys is the pseudonym of psychological thriller writer Tammy Cohen. Her debut, Dangerous Crossing, was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick and was followed by Fatal Inheritance and Island of Secrets. Rachel's historical fiction focuses on exotic locations and dark mysteries but her protagonists travel emotionally as well as geographically, pushing to expand the limited horizons available to women of their era and, in the process, discovering who they really are. She lives in North London, with her three (allegedly) grown up children and her neurotic rescue dog. Visit www.tammycohen.co.uk to find out more, or find her on facebook or twitter as @MsTamarCohen or on Instagram as @tammycohenwriter.
