‘Life hasn’t turned out how Danny Owen expected it to. Formerly an investigative journalist, today a radio reporter reluctantly covering celebrity and the music industry, focusing on the glitz, glamour and the gaudy stars. Danny is offered an exclusive interview with Martha, the star of the forthcoming Martha Movin’ Out tour, but when he arrives at Elstree Studios he discovers that rehearsals are not going well…’


Richard Cobourne’s new thriller novel is out now and follows Danny Owen as he investigates the disappearance of Martha, the star of a show being rehearsed at Elstree Studios – a location throughout the story.


Elstree Studios is used frequently as a rehearsal space for productions and live music tour rehearsals. Internationally famous acts such as Robbie Williams, Kylie, Rihanna, Take That, One Direction and many other artists find Elstree Studios’ stages ideal for their tour rehearsals enabling them to fit a full-size stadium stage and lighting grid.


Richard Cobourne writes with a production background having worked in show business for over 40 years. He co-founded production company, On Screen Productions Ltd, in 1990 and whilst he sold it 5 years ago to concentrate on his writing, he is still a consultant creative producer.
