Beverley Jones, aka B. E. Jones, is a former journalist who worked in newspapers and for BBC Wales before becoming a media manager for South Wales Police. Now a freelance writer and novelist, she channels her experiences of ‘true crime’ into her dark psychological mysteries.
Her sixth thriller, Wilderness (The Perfect Break), published by Little Brown, is currently being adapted into a six part series by Firebird Pictures for Amazon Prime TV, due to air in 2023. The Beach House is her seventh crime novel. She is represented by Peter Buckman at the Ampersand Agency and by Northbank Talent Management.
Her new thriller, The Beach House, will shortly be available from Little, Brown.
The beach house was the perfect place to hide. Or so she thought . . .
When Grace Jensen returns to her home one day, she finds a body in a pool of blood and a menacing gift left for her.
The community of Lookout Beach is shocked by such a brutal intrusion in their close-knit neighbourhood – particularly to a family as successful and well-liked as the Jensens – and a police investigation to find the trespasser begins.
But Grace knows who’s after her. She might have changed her name and moved across the world, deciding to hide on the Oregon coast, but she’s been waiting seventeen years for what happened in the small Welsh town where she grew up to catch-up with her.
Grace might seem like the model neighbour and mother, but nobody in Lookout Beach – not even her devoted husband Elias – knows the real her. Or how much blood is on her hands.
The hottest, edge-of-your-seat summer thriller, perfect for fans of Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and The Holiday by T. M. Logan.
