Fools and Mortals by Bernard Cornwell Read the opening extract of the brand new Bernard Cornwell book before its publication on 19/10/2017

Her by Harriet Lane
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A psychological thriller that builds slowly as two women, in alternating chapters, tell of their lives. They overlap now and did years ago but one long forgotten. This is a tale of envy, jealousy, the have and the have-nots that right from the start has some deep underlying menace that you know has to erupt. What and how is beautifully done in such a way as to keep you on tenterhooks to the end, mixing social satire and a haunting thriller.

If you like Harriet Lane you might also like to read books by Zoe Heller, Donna Tartt and Sophie Hannah.

Synopsis

Her by Harriet Lane

Two women; two different worlds. Emma is a struggling mother who has put everything on hold. Nina is sophisticated and independent - entirely in control. When the pair meet, Nina generously draws Emma into her life. But this isn't the first time the women's paths have crossed. Nina remembers Emma and she remembers what Emma did. But what exactly does Nina want from her? And how far will she go in pursuit of it?

Reviews

'Another taut, tense psychological thriller from the author of the acclaimed 2012 debut novel Alys, Always... A compelling revenge drama that will make you think twice about getting too chummy with the neighbours.' -- Sebastian Shakespeare TATLER

'Harriet Lane's first novel Alys, Always was widely praised for combining sharply observed everyday life with something a lot more sinister. Her second now pulls off the same trick with equal aplomb... The result is a novel that becomes increasingly - and at times excruciatingly - tense as it approaches its devastating final chapter' READERS DIGEST

'With a forensic eye for domestic detail, Lane sets up a riveting series of vicious snares' SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE

'Her is another psychological thriller, every bit as compulsive as the first one... The menace here is the sort that lurks right at the edge of consciousness - something unsettling that you can't quite put your finger on, that builds and builds until the last chapter by which time I was holding my breath. Don't miss.' -- Alice O'Keeffe THE BOOKSELLER
