Rachel Rhys is the pseudonym of psychological thriller writer Tammy Cohen. Her debut, Dangerous Crossing, was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick and was followed by Fatal Inheritance and Island of Secrets. Rachel's historical fiction focuses on exotic locations and dark mysteries but her protagonists travel emotionally as well as geographically, pushing to expand the limited horizons available to women of their era and, in the process, discovering who they really are. She lives in North London, with her three (allegedly) grown up children and her neurotic rescue dog.
