Only a few close friends know. Sarah hates publicity and won t hold sťances, her ability is too private and personal ...but the police know and so do the spirits who seek her help and some ghosts, especially children, are very hard to ignore. All Sarah wants to do is to live quietly with her daughter Clarrie. However, a quiet life is difficult to achieve when the recently dead keep intruding. Worse, her daughter may also be psychic and without realising it, is walking into danger ...so a missing woman and child may soon be the least of all their worries! In whatever order you read her books, Mai Griffin s Deadly Grey series of supernatural thrillers will grip you.

Review:

Deadly Shades of Grey by Mai Griffin Hardback with Dust Jacket UK Publisher: U P Publications Ltd The horrific prologue, launches us straight into Mai Griffin s dramatic psychic mystery thriller Deadly Shades of Grey . Reflecting the dark side of the mysteries that plague the day to day life of unwilling psychic Sarah Grey and her artist daughter Clarrie Hunter, it also marks the start of the Grey series. As the plots twist and spiral around the edge of the reader s vision it is possible to see the dilemma of trying to live normally, when everything around you isn t. Overcoming the temptation to live in denial of their unwanted psychic abilities, Clarrie and Sarah are gradually drawn in to help find a kidnapped woman and a child that has disappeared... ... and what does Clarrie keep glimpsing in her picture of an old empty cottage and why has she been driven to paint it? No matter where she goes, danger keeps intruding into Clarrie s life and painting is not keeping it at bay... Despite the terrible things that happen around them Mai s characters feel like people that I might have met in the nineties, when the books are set. A mixture of characters from the young and independent female artist to the older and old-fashioned friends of her mother, these people feel real and their problems and issues are well portrayed. The story lines all have a beginning, middle and end and one closes the book, satisfied, but wanting to read more! Fortunately Book Two in the series A Poisonous Shade of Grey is now out and should be in the shops in time for Christmas! Yet another twisting Grey tale , the story starts with a rejected lover seeking to eliminate the competition by murdering the wife . Carefully planned, and skilfully executed by someone who specialises in expediency and efficiency... what could go wrong? --Grapevine Magazine Spain Dec 2008

This review is from: Deadly Shades of Grey (Hardcover) The creativity of some artists, it seems, just cannot be contained or constrained within the limits of one particular medium, and so it is with the internationally-acclaimed painter, Mai Griffin. In the first of her series which introduces the Grey family, she has turned her artistic talent to the written word and proves as adept with her pen as she is with a paint brush. For widow Sarah Grey, who only wants to live a quiet life, being psychic is a cause of much anxiety and discomfort. However, she knows that to maintain her peace of mind and sanity she must force herself to respond to the messages that haunt her. Adding to Sarah's anxiety is the fact that her daughter, Clarrie, seems to have inherited the same psychic ability, a situation which could lead her into terrible danger. Deadly Shades of Grey is a well-crafted mystery/murder novel with a gripping and taut plot that has intriguing twists and turns. It is a good and thoroughly satisfying read. Although Book 1 is a stand-alone novel, I cannot wait to get hold of Book 2 to learn more about this interesting family and what happens to them. --John Anthony Power
