Hello, July, month of my birthday... This year is especially nice because THE OTHER PASSENGER has been picked as Apple Books' Thriller of the Month!
I'm thrilled and proud to be a part of Quick Reads 2021 with a new short novel called The Skylight. Check out the stellar line-up here, along with details of this hugely successful literacy campaign.
Hooray to me - and my wonderful publisher S&S UK! The Other Passenger is now out in the UK in hardback and ebook, with the audiobook to follow on July 9 (more on that soon). A huge thank you to all who have pre-ordered or intend to try it. I can't wait to hear what you think!
Hello, June! Reviews have started to come in for The Other Passenger, which publishes in hardback, ebook and audiobook in the UK on the 25th - can't wait! Sarra Manning at Red Online hails 'the queen of the urban thriller' (that's me - ha!) in her Best Books to Read in June, while Francesca Brown at Stylist says the big twist 'made my head hurt'... More to come - and don't forget you can pre-order a special signed edition from Waterstones.
Just a month ahead of release, we'll be hosting a Twitter chat about The Other Passenger on 27 May - deets below! You can download the book from Netgalley and read it in time - hope you can join!
Readers in the US and Canada can now read THOSE PEOPLE in paperback form - check out these retailers for availability...
For those who aren't Netgalley members and fancy a taster of The Other Passenger, you can now read the first few chapters... Enjoy! (I'm so excited about this book, even if lockdown conditions mean we might be doing things a little differently this time...)
I've been a fan of Joe Haddow's Book Off podcast for ages and was VERY pleased to be asked on with the multi-million seller Mark Edwards to talk about our own latest books (his is the twisty Here To Stay - I recommend) and to pitch our favourite reads to Joe... Many of you will predict that I chose a Tom Wolfe - but which one? And did I convince Joe to choose it over Mark's pick? I loved doing this interview - though Mark and I have very similar taste (we both have Lana Del Rey obsessions, for instance) and so it wasn't exactly warfare... You can get Book Off on iTunes, Avast or Spotify.
Netgalley members, you are in for a treat, because the proof of The Other Passenger has some very special finishes (design speak for looks and feels fab). You can request your copy now!
Well, any excuse to repost the picture of me grinning wildly with my Nibbie! I'm honoured to have been asked to be a judge at this year's British Book Awards - in the same category that OUR HOUSE won in 2019: Book of the Year Crime & Thriller. I'll post the shortlist as soon as I know it, meanwhile here are the judges' deets...
