Louise Candlish is the Sunday Times and international bestselling author of 16 novels and she is published all over the world. Her brand-new psychological thriller The Only Suspect is out now and is described by the Daily Mail as 'a perfect blend of nostalgia and menace'.

It won the British Book Awards Book of the Year – Crime & Thriller and was shortlisted for the Goldsboro Books Glass Bell Award, the Capital Crime Amazon Publishing Best Crime Novel of the Year Award, and the Audible Sounds of Crime Award.
