Welcome to Isabelle Grey's author page. I enjoy writing crime and suspense because they offer a chance to explore dark emotions and psychological states alongside a range of contemporary issues. I’m fascinated by how any kind of uniform can change the people who wear it, and how often loyalty to a job that exists for the public good can lead to ‘noble cause’ corruption within its ranks. With a forensic pathologist and a forensic psychiatrist in the family, I also appreciate the fine detail of real police work! My crime series features Detective Inspector Grace Fisher, a murder detective with the Essex Major Investigation Team in Colchester. When bullying colleagues expose her emotional and physical vulnerabilities, she becomes even more determined to fight for justice for the victims of crime and to protect the integrity of the job she loves. Drawing on my own background as a freelance journalist, her investigations are followed closely by a disreputable tabloid crime reporter, Ivo Sweatman. Although his hot pursuit of a sensational news story frequently clashes with her painstaking search for evidence, they manage to come together to establish the truth. In the latest book in the series, 'Wrong Way Home' - a Sunday Times Crime Book of the Month – Grace and Ivo also have to contend with a young and ambitious true-crime podcaster who tries to bend the truth to fit his dramatic re-telling of a cold case. My two earlier novels of psychological suspense are 'Out of Sight' and the #1 Amazon bestseller 'The Bad Mother'. Born within the sound of Bow Bells in London's East End, I grew up in Manchester, spent ten years on what was once a tidal island at the edge of the Romney Marsh, and now live and work in north London. As a freelance journalist I contributed to national newspapers and magazines. I have also written numerous screenplays for television crime dramas, including The Bill, Wycliffe, Rosemary & Thyme and Midsomer Murders. With Jimmy McGovern, I co-wrote 'Tina's Story' for the award-winning BBC series Accused, a series finale described by the Times as ‘the most moving and powerful drama on television in a long time’. I now also write as V.B. Grey You can follow me on Twitter @IsabelleGrey or read my blog at
