You’d think it would be the perfect recipe for murder – a husband and wife writing novels… together! Love and literary talent clearly conquers all when it comes to Nicci French, the murderously good crime-writing couple.

Nicci French is of course the pseudonym for Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. Nicci, who studied and taught English literature before working as a journalist and editor, met Sean on the New Statesman, where he worked as a columnist. Words clearly tied the two together in a tryst that’s resulted in 14 bestselling novels. Famed for the utterly addictive indomitable Frieda Klein series, Blue Monday was the first thrilling story, followed by Tuesday’s Gone, Waiting for Wednesday, Thursday’s Child, Friday on My Mind, Saturday Requiem and Sunday Morning Coming Down.
