Caro Ramsay was born in Govan, on Glasgow’s south side.
Her first novel Absolution was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger 2008 and her second Singing to the Dead was long listed for the Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year Award in 2010. Dark Waters, The Blood of Crows, The Night Hunter, Tears of Angels, Rat Run, Standing Still, The Suffering of Strangers and The Sideman, followed in the celebrated Anderson and Costello series.
Caro still has a day job treating dogs, horses and the odd human. She has a diploma in Forensic Medical Science and an embalming tank named after her. Her editor read Rat Run and said Caro had a very warped mind. Caro took that as a compliment.
Caro’s latest novel is Mosaic. Megan Melvick returns home to visit her dying sister Melissa and to overcome her demons she must confront the painful memory of the night of Melissa’s wedding, the night someone died. But can she trust her memory and who is determined that she should forget?
