Harry Fisher is a native of Leith (the port for Edinburgh) so that’s where his crime thrillers are set. Prior to his debut, Harry had never written a word of fiction, so he just launched in – cold turkey for authors. Now he has three books published, with a fourth ready to fly.

His main protagonist is Detective Inspector Melissa (Mel) Cooper - “She takes no crap, not even from the bad guys”.

Mel was introduced in Way Beyond A Lie (2021), before starring in Be Sure Your Sins (2021) and Yes, I Killed Her (2022).

Mel and her team’s next episode will be 48 Hours, Then She Dies (due 2024).

Harry is a confident and engaging public speaker who loves chatting about crime writing, especially meeting people face to face.


He lives in Aberdeen with his wife, Shiona, and their Hungarian Vizsla. They are into travel, the outdoors, wine and food, and if all four are combined then so much the better.

Be Sure Your Sins

I was immediately gripped by the opening chapters and ended up reading it in a day because I HAD to know how it ended ... humdinger of a crime story.

Wow, what a book and what an introduction to a new series and author.

This has to be top of my favourite writers list. So many twists, a corkscrew would look straight by comparison.

Not your run of the mill murder mystery. Great characters and Edinburgh shines through. Amazon Reader - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved this story from the beginning to the end. I devoured it (there is no other word to describe it) in two days.

Incredible 3rd novel by this new, incredibly exciting new Scottish crime writer!
