Author Saffina Desforgesabout this book: Sugar & Spice ~ the book they said we couldn't publish...two years on and it has sold close to 250,000 copies!

When you think the unthinkable, where do you turn?

Sugar & Spice is the UK #1 best-selling, controversial psycho-sexual crime thriller the agents called "the last taboo". THE 11th best-selling ebook in the UK of 2011. (ref:

Based on research and details from the case of child killer, Robert Black and his capture, Sugar & Spice was deemed "Too controversial for the British market."

'Sugar & Spice' is now published in Europe and voted as a 'Red Adept Reviews' 2011 award winner for mystery!

If you like cosy crime, this is NOT for you.

Would you trust a convicted sex offender to help you find your daughter's killer? Claire did...

Inspired by a news story of a man who begged a Judge to give him a longer sentence, because he knew he would harm another child if released without treatment, Sugar & Spice is meticulously researched, asking the questions society prefers not to have answered. At once disquieting and challenging, Sugar & Spice is car-crash reading.


It's every parent's worst nightmare: A child fails to return home. As hours turn to days, all they can do is hope. Some children never come back...

Driven by the need to know why, a mother confronts the man accused of her daughter's murder, he presents a compelling defence, convincing Claire not only that he is innocent of harming her daughter, but that his previous convictions were not what they seemed. Teaming up with a second-year psychology student and a fourteen year-old truant schoolboy, Sugar & Spice is the story of a mother's fight to bring one man's reign of terror to an end.

Be warned: In Sugar & Spice not all things are nice...
