"The Hidden Legacy" Published as an eBook in November 2015 and in paperback in August 2016. 1966: A horrifying crime at a secondary school, with devastating consequences for all involved. 2008: A life-changing gift, if only the recipient can work out why . . . Recently divorced and with two young children to raise, Ellen Sutherland is having to cope with more than her fair share of pressure, both professionally and in her personal life. When she learns that an elderly lady has left her a Cotswold cottage worth an amount of money that could turn her life around, there's just one problem - Ellen has never heard of anyone called Eudora Nash, has never been to that area in her life and is convinced this must be a mistake.

But when she and her friend Kate travel to the West Country in search of answers, it soon becomes apparent that they are not the only ones interested in the cottage, and before long Ellen is forced to ask herself just how badly she wants answers to some of the mysteries that have haunted her until now. Little does she imagine just how much she has to learn about her past . . .

"Lie In Wait" Published as an eBook in August 2016. The paperback edition was published in March 2017. Vividly imagined and ingeniously plotted, "Lie in Wait" is G J Minett's stunning follow-up to the best selling and acclaimed "The Hidden Legacy". Owen Hall has always been different. A big man with an unusual fixation, one who prefers to put his trust in number patterns rather than in people, it's unsurprising that he'd draw the attention of a bully. Or a murder investigation. And, in the storm of emotions and accusations that erupts when a violent killing affects a small community, it soon becomes clear that a particularly clever murderer might just get away with it. All they'd need is a likely suspect . . .

A little bit about Graham Minett...

Graham was born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and lived there for 18 years before studying for a degree in Modern and Medieval Languages at Churchill College, Cambridge. He taught for several years, first in Cheltenham and then in West Sussex before opting to go part-time and start an MA in Creative Writing at the University of Chichester. Completing the course in 2008, he gained a distinction for the dissertation under the guidance of novelist, Alison MacLeod and almost immediately won the Segora Short Story Competition with ‘On the Way Out’. Other awards soon followed, most notably his success in the 2010 Chapter One novel competition with what would eventually become the opening pages of his debut novel. He was signed up by Peter Buckman of the Ampersand Agency, who managed to secure a two-book deal with twenty7, the digital-first adult fiction imprint of Bonnier Publishing. "The Hidden Legacy" was published as an eBook in November 2015 and the paperback version was published in August 2016. The second book in the deal, entitled "Lie in Wait", was published as an eBook in August 2016 and the paperback version will be on the shelves in bookshops around the country in March 2017. Graham lives with his wife and children in West Sussex but retains close links with the rest of his family in Cheltenham.
