When Isaac Naylor committed suicide after a teenage fan was found dead in his hotel room, the world thought it had lost one of the greatest rock stars of a generation. Naylor, lead singer of The Ospreys, had been arrested for causing the girl’s death and was on police bail when he drowned himself in the sea off the Devon coast, leaving two notes addressed to his bandmates and his younger brother, Toby, discarded on the beach.

Now, eight years on, music journalist Natalie Glass stumbles across a blind item on a US gossip website that suggests Naylor’s death wasn’t quite what it seemed – and he might in fact still be alive. The item claims he is the mystery songwriter who has for the past year been submitting lyrics to producers in London via his lawyer for other artists to record. He insists on anonymity and the only person who knows his identity is the lawyer.

But as she delves deeper into what happened, the plot to stop her intensifies and Natalie finds she has a stark choice: give up trying to find out what happened to Naylor or risk her own obituary ending up in print.

Reviews

A twisting tale about the dark undercurrents of fame and fortune. You'll read THE DEATH OF ME with your heart in your mouth.
Erin Kelly
A cat and mouse game of a novel where nobody and nothing is as it seems, all set in the seedy world of music. Topped off with a twist you definitely won't see coming.
Araminta Hall
So cleverly done ... Michelle's trademark plotting is combined brilliantly with the rising tension.
