Nalini Singh was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She
spent three years living and working in Japan, and travelling
around Asia before returning to New Zealand now - although she's
always plotting new trips. She has worked as a lawyer, a librarian,
a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher,
not necessarily in that order. Some people might call that
inconsistency, but she calls it grist for the writer's mill.

accomplished novel * Sunday Times *
[An] exceptional first crime novel * Publishers Weekly *
An atmospheric read with a compelling sense of the spectacular rugged landscape * Guardian *
Nalini Singh's gorgeous descriptions of the wild west coast of New Zealand in A Madness of Sunshine add a palpable air of danger to the 'harsh and unforgiving landscape' of this beautiful land 'at the bottom of the world' * The New York Times Book Review *
Popular romance author Singh shifts to a new genre, New Zealand gothic, in which nearly every character -- including the dense, ferocious landscape -- has something to hide, and studying them is nearly as fascinating and compelling as solving the multifaceted mystery. Astute, insightful, and descriptive storytelling; a strong step in a new direction for Singh * Kirkus *
Lush, atmospheric, and addictive, A Madness of Sunshine seduces with its beautiful sense of place and layered, compelling characters, then hooks you right in with a riveting noir mystery. When a beautiful girl goes missing and a dark past collides with the brutal present, the truth is as harsh and unforgiving as the landscape in which Nalini Singh's twisting tale is set * Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author *
Nalini Singh's latest novel, A Madness of Sunshine, has more twists and turns than the rugged New Zealand coastline on which it's set . . . Chocked full of unique characters and red herrings, this book is just my kind of pulse-pounding mystery. I loved it! Though A Madness of Sunshine is the first novel of Ms. Singh's I've read, it won't be the last * Lisa Jackson, New York Times bestselling author *
