The covers for the Quick Reads 2021 have now been revealed, including mine for The Skylight, which I just love! In the story, our narrator Simone spies on the downstairs neighbours in their glamorous new kitchen extension through the enormous skylight they've had put in. Harmless enough - until the day she sees something that stirs murderous impulses in her... Find out more about the Quick Reads campaign and pre-order The Skylight for 99p. The books publish in May 2021.
The audiobook of The Other Passenger is published today! It's a little later than the hardback and ebook in the UK because we wanted to wait for Steve Mackintosh to be available to record it... He's one of my all-time favourite actors and I had him in mind constantly when I was writing Jamie (also, a little bit, with Bram in Our House, but it's absolutely definitely not an obsession). So when Simon & Schuster audio team were casting Jamie, I kept saying, 'Can you get someone who sounds like Steve Mackintosh?', until, eventually, they said, 'We'll try and get Steve himself.' The rest is audiobook perfection.
The Other Passenger is out today Down Under and I can't wait to hear what my farthest-flung (from me, obviously, not from one another) readers think of it! Better Reading says it will knock your socks off - read their review to whet your appetite...

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!

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...)
