A new thriller novel with a special feature from Rivington Terraced Gardens and Greater Manchester Police and Lancashire Police is due to be published.
Psychological thriller writer Rachel Abbott is self-publishing her latest novel, No More Lies, and it will be available for pre-order on February 3rd before being published on February 16th.
Part of the best-selling DCI Tom Douglas series, the book is set in Manchester, with several parts of the story set in Rivington Terraced Gardens, with overlap between Greater Manchester and Lancashire police forces.
The book, which will be available in paperback, audio and e-book, follows Mallory Hansen’s point of view.
Recently, life has been good for Mallory Hansen – a great job, a beautiful home, and a wonderful man, Nathan, to share it with.
But now one has to ask – is it all built on lies?

A shocking accusation is made against Nathan, and Mallory doesn’t know who to trust.
He denies everything, but all signs point to his guilt. She has learned to trust Nathan, but she also remembers the boy he was.
As teenagers, Mallory and Nathan were part of a close-knit group of six friends until a heated argument tore them apart.
Now, 15 years later, they are back in touch – only to find themselves drawn into a web of mutual distrust, one by one…
The attacks on their lives are cleverly targeted, designed to hit them where it hurts the most, and when a young woman disappears and a baby is kidnapped, Inspector Tom Douglas must try to unravel the past and discover who is the architect of their misery.
Rachel Abbott’s first 10 novels and one novella have collectively sold more than four million copies.
All have been bestsellers in Amazon’s Kindle store, and her books have been translated into more than 20 languages.

In 2015, Rachel was named the number one best-selling self-published author in the UK and the 14th best-selling author, both published and self-published, in the previous five years on Amazon’s UK Kindle.
Rachel said her inspiration for the locations came from memories of Rivington when her sister was growing up.
She said: “I’m delighted to be able to write about Rivington Terraced Gardens – a place I used to visit as a child long before the restoration work began. I clearly remember how my sister and I ‘discovered’ the gardens.
“We thought they were a secret that only we knew because old stairs and ruins of buildings were revealed around every corner.
“And I’m always excited to write about my detective, Inspector Tom Douglas.
“Although he works for Greater Manchester Police, he has to step briefly into Lancashire Police territory for this story, but I couldn’t resist the allure of this location for some of the intense, dark scenes.”
The book will be available to buy from Amazon, Waterstones and Audible priced at £8.99 for paperback.
