Mally Becker combines her love of history and crime fiction in mysteries that feature strong, independent heroines. Kirkus Reviews called her first book, "A compelling tale ... with charming main characters,” and her most recent, The Counterfeit Wife, “A riveting and unpredictable crime drama that also works as an affecting love story.”
Her debut novel, The Turncoat's Widow, was nominated for an Agatha Award and named a Killer Nashville Silver Falchion finalist. Published in September 2022, The Counterfeit Wife has also been nominated for an Agatha Award.
A member of the board of MWA-NY, Mally was an attorney until becoming a full-time writer. She and her husband live in Somerset County, New Jersey, not too far from Morristown, where her first book is set. Mally is happily at work on the third installment of her American Revolution mystery series.
