I know about your secrets.

Your dirty laundry. But what do you know about me? Molly the maid is all alone in the world.

A nobody. She’s used to being invisible in her job at the Regency Grand Hotel, plumping pillows and wiping away the grime, dust and secrets of the guests passing through.

She’s just a maid – why should anyone take notice? But Molly is thrown into the spotlight when she discovers an infamous guest, Mr Black, very dead in his bed.

This isn’t a mess that can be easily cleaned up. And as Molly becomes embroiled in the hunt for the truth, following the clues whispering in the hallways of the Regency Grand, she discovers a power she never knew was there.

She’s just a maid – but what can she see that others overlook? Escapist, charming and introducing a truly original heroine, The Maid is a story about how the truth isn’t always black and white – it’s found in the dirtier, grey areas in between . . . *RIGHTS SOLD IN 29 TERRITORIES* ‘With The Maid comes an exciting and formidable new voice’ SANTA MONTEFIORE ‘Gripping, deftly written, and led by a truly unforgettable protagonist in Molly.
