Martina Cole first made headlines in 1992, when her debut novel Dangerous Lady  was bought by Headline for a then record-breaking advance and became an instant bestseller.

Twenty-four years later, Martina  is the acknowledged queen of crime drama with more than 20 novels to her name, of which over a dozen have been No.1 bestsellers.

Martina is a phenomenon; she continues to smash sales records with each of her books, which have sold in excess of 14 million copies in total.

Several of Martina’s novels have been adapted for the screen including The Take and The Runaway, which were shown on Sky One to remarkable reviews. Her hard-hitting, uncompromising and haunting writing is in a genre all its own – no one writes like Martina.
