Eva Hudson Eva grew up in south London. Before she started writing full time, she worked as a local government officer, singer, dotcom entrepreneur, portrait artist, project manager, graphic designer, web designer and content editor. Eva had wanted to write ever since she was a child (she won a literary competition aged 10 for a ghost story!), but didn’t get around to writing her first novel until 2005 when, inspired by Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, she realised she wanted to tell real page-turning stories that would keep people up all night just to find out what happens next. Her first novel wasn’t, she freely admitted, very good and it was consigned to a very deep drawer… shortly followed by her second novel. She started her third novel, The Loyal Servant, in 2010. Set in the Department for Education where Eva had worked for eight years, it won the inaugural Lucy Cavendish fiction prize from Cambridge University and gave her the confidence that she was finally writing something people wanted to read. She published The Loyal Servant in 2011 and never looked back. READ MORE



Meet Ingrid Skyberg, one of the toughest Special Agents ever to come out of Quantico. She’s tenacious, resourceful, virtually indestructible and just a little bit out of control. Assigned to the US embassy in London, Ingrid is on the case when an American citizen gets into trouble… or winds up dead… or is accused of a crime they didn’t commit. Whether she needs to wear combat fatigues or a cocktail dress, Ingrid Skyberg always gets the job done.

Ingrid grew up on a Minnesota farm but the course of her life was changed when, aged 14, her best friend was abducted, never to be seen again. She vowed she wouldn’t stop until Megan was found and the man who took her was brought to justice. From that point on, Ingrid’s life was devoted to joining the Federal Bureau of Investigation: she got herself fit, got her college degree, became fluent in three languages and served time in the local Sheriff’s department until she met the FBI’s joining criteria.

At first, she was a stickler, a keeper-of-the-rules. But the more cases she works, the more comfortable she is when she has to step out of line. Supremely fit and utterly determined, nothing stands between Ingrid Skyberg and the truth.

Dedicated to football

I dedicated Final Offer, the latest Skyberg investigation, to the brilliant women I play football with, and tomorrow night on BBC1, you can watch some of my team mates play when Inside Out reports on the Old Girls’ World Cup which took place in France this summer. Ingrid joins an over-35s football (soccer to some of you) in Final Offer because I needed to give her some friends outside of the embassy. I also wanted to show how much fun playing sport in your thirties, forties and fifties is. For me, and for many of the women I play with, it’s not just about fun and fitness, it’s about friendship. A few months after Eva died, one of my neighbours – who is now one of my best friends – got me out of the house by saying I should play football with some of her mates on a local school’s playing field. I didn’t know anyone else there, and didn’t know if I could play (I can’t really), but week by week I got a bit better, gained in confidence, left the house more and met a bunch of the most fantastic women. I really, truly believe playing football was the best form of grief counselling and I’m so grateful I was allowed to join the gang. Four years on, we now play under floodlights, have regular coaching sessions and take part in the growing number of Women’s Recreational Football tournaments around the country. You can see how much it means to everyone who takes part in this clip from tomorrow night’s broadcast. Inside Out, BBC1, 7:30pm,... read more

A deadly coincidence

Isn’t it nice when the headlines help you out with a bit of publicity! This morning, the day after the launch for Final Offer, I saw a report about the brown recluse spider which makes a (significant) guest appearance in the new Skyberg adventure. Check out this link for the gruesome story. When I started researching this book back in 2016 I was working with the completely brilliant adventurer and survival expert Megan Hine on her book Mind Of A Survivor (which was – by far – the most interesting book I worked on as a ghostwriter on and I totally recommend it if you’re interested in why some people make it out of survival situations alive, and some don’t). Meg was an amazing person for me to work with as I took over the Skyberg series, as she’s got all kinds of knowledge in her head that is probably in Ingrid’s (but not mine). The hypothermia plot in Below Zero, by the way, was a direct consequence of a story Meg told me. When I was writing Final Offer I said to Meg… I need a small poisonous spider, one that doesn’t kill straight away, one where you can function for a bit and where it wouldn’t be immediately obvious how someone had died. And Meg suggested the brown recluse. If you want to see Meg in action, she’s currently part of the team hunting for a lost city in the Amazon in the Curse of Akakor.

An unusual birthday present

Today would have been Eva’s 54th birthday and, coincidentally, it also marks a big, bold new chapter in the Ingrid Skyberg story, so I’ve got two very important things to celebrate. The Skyberg series is being relaunched today by my new publisher. Over the next few months, the entire series will be reissued starting with Fresh Doubt and culminating – finally – with the publication of the new Skyberg adventure, Final Offer. I’m really excited about the new deal: it will hopefully mean the Skyberg series finds many more new readers and give Eva the legacy she deserves. And the good news for existing readers is the deal frees up my time to write more books. I’m currently plotting the next book and it feels like it might be the most thrilling instalment yet. So please join me today in toasting the remarkable, and much missed, Eva Hudson. Happy birthday xx +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ RETURN TO THE BLOG... read more
