Alison Bruce's first novel, Cambridge Blue (2008), was described by Publishers Weekly as an ‘assured debut’ and introduced both detective, DC Gary Goodhew, and her trademark Cambridge setting. She went on to complete the DC Goodhew series with a further six novels before writing her first standalone psychological thriller, I Did It For Us in 2018.
Her work has attracted both critical acclaim and a loyal readership. In 2013 and 2016, Alison was shortlisted for the Crime Writers’ Association Dagger in the Library Award and in 2017, she was longlisted for the third time.
Alison's most recent Goodhew novel, Cambridge Black, was published by Little Brown in February 2017. Mystery People have said: "A first class writer... Complex and intricately plotted, this is a fascinating mystery." Read the whole review here.
Her next book, The Moment Before Impact, will be published in October 2020.
Alison teaches creative writing and is a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
