Abi Silver

Abi Silver biography

Abi Silver grew up in Yorkshire, has travelled widely and now lives in Hertfordshire with her
husband and three sons. She grew up in a house full of books, so it’s no surprise that she always
wanted to join the ranks of her heroes. She is a practising lawyer and the author of the Burton &
Lamb legal thriller series, which is set in London. Abi’s stories feature the legal ‘dream team’ of
Judith Burton, an experienced but acid-tongued barrister and Constance Lamb, a more cautious and
circumspect solicitor, thrown together to defend the suspects in a series of challenging cases, each
with an AI twist. Abi has always had an interest in science and technology and the speed at which it
is taking over our lives and this is reflected in her books.
