Ruth Ware

Ruth Ware grew up in Sussex, on the south coast of England. After graduating from Manchester University, she moved to Paris, before settling in North London. She has worked as a waitress, a bookseller, a teacher of English as a foreign language and a press officer. She is married with two small children.

She owes money to a loan shark and the threats are getting increasingly aggressive: she needs to get her hands on some cash fast.
