About the book

Those overcast dawns are the best, the truest light. There's no false colour, no shadows or glare. People talk about the cold, hard light of day. There's no espcaing what you can see by it. There can be no confusing, in that early morning light, the truth with the wished-for reality of dreams. The body was still there. He was still dead. After her long-term relationship ends, Manda finds solace in bird-watching a hobby her ex introduced her to and which she has embraced for its quiet beauty. The birds provide Manda with an escape from her loneliness, especially as she seems to be losing her group of close friends along with her boyfriend. But then she falls prey to the ever more sinister attentions of another birdwatcher. As the harassment builds up, she is forced to flee; and details of her own complicated past start to emerge. Out of a Clear Sky is an unsettling psychological thriller about obsession and truth, with the edginess of Nicci French and the class of Barbara Vine, and introduces a fascinating, compelling and freshly original voice to crime fiction.

About the Author

Sally Hinchcliffe

Sally Hinchcliffe was born in London but grew up all over the world in the wake of her father’s diplomatic career. She spent many years working at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew developing research systems for taxonomists until a two-year sabbatical in Eswatini gave her the impetus to take her writing seriously. After completing an MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck, her first novel, Out of a Clear Sky, was published by Macmillan in 2008. She moved to south-west Scotland to work as a writer and freelance editor full time, when she is now out exploring rural Dumfries and Galloway on her bike.
