On BorrowBox:

After serving a lengthy sentence for the murder of her husband, Dolly Rawlins is free from prison. And she's only got one thing on her mind: the diamonds she stashed before the police caught her.

But there are people waiting for Dolly on the outside ­- tough ex-prisoners who know about the diamonds, and they all want a cut.

Also waiting for Dolly is DS Mike Withey. He holds her personally responsible for the death of his sister in the diamond raid ten years earlier. And he wants her back inside.

Dolly Rawlins has other plans. But can she realise the dream that kept her going all those years in prison and avoid those who are after her?

With her banker husband, three beautiful children and gorgeous house in a sought-after corner of London, but behind the expensive clothes, make-up and furniture lies a big secret. Faiza has been dipping into the family savings account in her attempt to belong, promising herself that one day she'll put the money back. Now Faiza has six weeks to put it all back before her husband or her friends notice she is penniless. And as the clock ticks down, a different Faiza emerges: one who will learn things about her family, her identity, her hopes and desires that she never knew before.

Listen to Ten things about writing

Saskia and Jenny are twins, alike in appearance only: Saskia has a single-minded focus on her studies, while Jenny is glamorous, thrill-seeking and capricious. Still, when Jenny is severely injured in an accident, Saskia puts her life on hold for her sister. Sara and Mattie are sisters with another difficult dynamic: Mattie needs almost full-time care, while Sara loves nothing more than fine wines, perfumes and expensive clothing, and leaves home at the first opportunity. But when their mother dies, Sara must move Mattie in with her. Gradually, Sara and Saskia learn that both their sisters' lives, and indeed their own, have been altered by the devastating actions of one man...

In turns razor-sharp, provocative and precise, Consent is a blistering novel of sisters and their knotty relationships, of predatory men and sexual power, of retribution and the thrilling possibilities of revenge.
