MJ Carter

MJ (Miranda) Carter, journalist and historian, turned to thriller-writing because it was so much fun making stuff up. She has written three thrillers set in the 1840s, the first, The Strangler Vine, and the third The Devil’s Feast, shortlisted for CWA Daggers. She is also the author of two non-fiction books: Anthony Blunt: His Lives, her biography of the Cambridge spy, which was chosen by the New York Times as one of the best books of 2002, and Three Emperors, about the 30 years before the First World War. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

‘Wonderful…the whodunit plot takes in celebrity chefs, extraordinary cuisine, international diplomacy and Victorian political shenanigans. The Devil’s Feast proves to be a sumptuous treat.’ – The Times
