House of Correction

Author: Nicci French Format: Paperback Release Date: 27/05/2021

LONGLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLD DAGGER AWARD She's a murderer. Everyone knows she killed Stuart Rees - why else would his dead body be found in her shed? So now Tabitha is in prison, awaiting trial. Coming back to the remote coastal village where she grew up was a mistake. She didn't fit in then, and she doesn't fit in now. That day is such a blur, she can't remember clearly what happened. There is something she is missing, something important... She only knows one thing. She is not capable of murder. And the only one she can trust to help her out of this situation is herself. So she must fight. Against the odds. For her life. Beautifully written about prejudice, loneliness and fighting spirit, this new book by Nicci French is shocking, twisty and utterly compelling.

Saturday Requiem

Saturday Requiem

Author: Nicci French Format: Paperback Release Date: 09/03/2017

Oh my word, ‘Saturday Requiem’ is another stunning, provocative and captivating addition to the ‘Frieda Klein’ series. Frieda Klein is asked to assess a woman who was found guilty and imprisoned for the murder of her family. As Frieda investigates the tragedy, she stirs up trouble, in more ways than one. Danger hovers in the background, it never truly goes away and haunts the steps of Frieda. The author combination behind Nicci French works brilliantly, there are no seams to trip over, instead their writing blends into a tension-filled pit of wonderful. I have absolutely loved this series, the fact that each of the six novels so far, all highlight a sequential day of the week suggests that the next title, on the last day, Sunday, is going to be an absolute belter!

THE NEW THRILLER FROM THE MASTER OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE 'He did kill. Kill and kill and kill.' Tess's number one priority has always been her three-year-old daughter Poppy. But splitting up with Poppy's father Jason means that she cannot always be there to keep her daughter safe. When she finds a disturbing drawing, dark and menacing, among her daughter's brightly coloured paintings, Tess is convinced that Poppy has witnessed something terrible. Something that her young mind is struggling to put into words. But no one will listen. It's only a child's drawing, isn't it? Tess will protect Poppy, whatever the price. But when she doesn't know what, or who, she is protecting her from, how can she possibly know who to trust . . . ? Praise for Nicci French: 'Confirms Nicci French as the giant of the genre' Erin Kelly 'Part ingenious locked-room mystery. Part you've-got-the-wrong-person nightmare drama. Part intricate memory game. Yet all seamlessly woven together. French's best book yet' A J Finn 'Expertly paced, psychologically sharp, thoroughly enjoyable' Louise Candlish 'Meticulously plotted, psychologically astute' Sarah Vaughan 'Great writing, razor-sharp plotting, and powerful characterisation. I was 100 pages in before I even drew breath, and I defy anyone to see the ending coming' Cara Hunter 'It's Nicci French perfection - which, as we all know, is the best kind of perfection. So, so gripping and brilliantly clued' Sophie Hannah 'A novel that blissfully plays with two genres: on the one hand an against-the-odds legal thriller a la John Grisham... and on the other a Miss Marple whodunnit' Sunday Times 'Nicci French husband-and-wife writing team responsible for some of the UK's best psychological thrillers have created a gem of a protagonist in Tabitha' Observer 'First-class' Independent 'Gripping' Literary Review 'Gritty and moving - the husband-and-wife team have scored another hit' Best 'A twisty and shocking read' Bella 'Engrossing' Good Housekeeping

House of Correction

House of Correction

Author: Nicci French Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/09/2020

This first class modern crime novel has, take a deep breath; all the thrills of an old fashioned whodunnit, an intricate locked room (or village) mystery, sits as a feisty prison thriller and tense courtroom drama, and then is twisty and turny as heck. While that may sound like a lot to take on board, it is so wonderfully written that the story seamlessly flows through the pages. Tabitha can’t remember the day that she is accused of killing Stuart Rees, she does know that she's not capable of murder, now she has to prove it. I just want to rave about the author combination behind Nicci French, their writing partnership works so incredibly well that there are no obvious joins or junctions. Their blended focus creates a real depth in terms of characters and plot. I’ve previously read the fabulous Frieda Klein series, yet think House of Correction tops that and sits as an absolutely stunning read. Tabitha is the most captivating character, her own memory of the day means she is unreliable, yet you stand with and alongside her as she tries to work out what happened. Thought-provoking and provocative, yet dramatic and breathtaking, this tale took off and flew for me. House of Correction just had to be a Liz Pick of the Month, and will join my collection of favourite crime novels.
