British crime novelist Mo Hayder, whose dark, shocking thrillers won her the title of “queen of fear”, has died at the age of 59 after being diagnosed with motor neuron disease in December.

Hayder was the pen name for Clare Dunkel. Her death was announced by her publisher Penguin Random House, which said she had “fought valiantly” since her diagnosis on 22 December, but that “the disease progressed at an alarming rate”.
