For Lizzie Bartholomew, a holiday in Morocco will change life forever. But not in the way she had hoped… Lizzie had planned her trip to Marrakech as the perfect escape from her life – and her nightmares – in Northumberland. Abandoned as a baby, and having spent her childhood moving between foster homes, Lizzie certainly has much to escape from. And for Lizzie, Morocco is the exotic paradise that she had imagined. Especially when she finds herself on a bus sitting next to a fellow tourist, who is also travelling to fulfil his dreams. After a brief affair, Lizzie returns to England. In the days that follow, she is distracted by thoughts of her mysterious lover, hoping against hope that Philip might come and find her. But suddenly she receives a letter from a firm of solicitors. Philip Samson has died. In his will, he has left Lizzie a gift of [pound]15,000. But there are conditions attached to this unexpected legacy. Conditions that will alter the course of Lizzie`s life forever.

Ann Cleeves (Ann Cleeves, born 1954) - British writer, author of detective stories. Anne grew up in rural England, her family first living in Herfordshire and then moving to North Devon. Ann`s father was a village teacher and the house was always full of books. After graduating from university, Ann tried herself in different fields. She was a children`s social inspector, then a probation inspector, a cook at an ornithological station, and a volunteer with the Coast Guard. On Fair Isle, where she cooked for the birdhouse workers, Anne met her husband-to-be, Tim. It was not his fascination with birds that attracted her, but the bottle of malt whiskey peeking out of her backpack, which she noticed when she showed Tim to his room. After they got married, Tim was named director of Hilbre, a tiny tidal island preserve. On the island, they were the only inhabitants, there was no main electricity or fresh water, and it was separated from the mainland by a strait with countless rocks. And if you are not a bird, and Anne was not a bird, and if you are not obsessed with them, then there is absolutely nothing for you to do on the island. And out of boredom, Ann began to write. Her first detectives were about the elderly naturalist George Palmer-Jones. Ann finds them terrible. In 1987 Tim, Anne and their two daughters moved to Northumberland, a county in the very north of England. And it was the harsh beauty of Northumberland that inspired Anne to create detective stories that can now be called classics of the genre. And it was there that Anne first met her readers and realized that people were delighted with her books. In 2006, The Raven Wing won the Duncan Laurie Dagger Award for Best Detective Novel. In terms of credibility, this is the second prize after the "Golden Dagger" in the detective genre, and in terms of financial weight - the first, the laureate of "Duncan Laurie`s Dagger" receives 20,000 pounds. Ann`s books have been translated into 20 languages. They became bestsellers in Scandinavia and Germany, spoiled by detectives. She became successful in the United States, where there are more than enough of her excellent detectives. In Sweden in 1007, The Raven Wing was nominated for the Martin Beck Prize for Best Foreign Detective. Now "The Raven Wing" (and this is the first part of the detective tetralogy) is being adapted for the television series. Another detective series by Ann Cleaves - about Vera Stanhope - has already been filmed and the short series "Vera" was very successful in Britain and has already penetrated into Russia, while counterfeit.  Wikipedia
