Until You're Mine by Samantha Hayes

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2014.

January 2014 Debut of the Month.

You of frail stomachs turn away from this. It’s brutal, bloody, sad and horribly compulsive. Concerning infidelity and the overwhelming desire to reproduce along with a couple of side plots to hold off the horror, this is disturbing stuff. Very good.

If you like Samantha Hayes you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, P. J. Tracy and Mo Hayder.

Claudia seems to have the perfect life. She's heavily pregnant with a much wanted baby, she has a loving husband, and a beautiful home. And then Zoe steps into her life. Zoe has come to help Claudia when her baby arrives. But there's something about Zoe that Claudia doesn't like. Or trust. And when she finds Zoe in her room going through her most personal possesions, Claudia's anxiety turns to real fear...

'wonderfully creepy' - The Toronto Star

'If you only take one book on holiday with you it has to be Until You're Mine by Samantha Hayes. It's a totally unputdownable thriller that will keep you gripped to your sun lounger until the very end. And just when you think you've figured things out, watch out for the twist!' - Cosmopolitan

'A terse and thrilling story not to be missed: the unforseen ending feels like walking on quicksand.' - Psychologies

About the Author

Samantha Hayes grew up in the West Midlands, left school at sixteen, avoided university and took jobs ranging from being a private detective to barmaid to fruit picker and factory worker. She lived on a kibbutz, and spent time in Australia and the USA, before finally becoming a crime-writer. Her writing career began when she won a short story competition in 2003. Her novels are family-based psychological thrillers, with the emphasis being on 'real life fiction'. She focuses on current issues, and when she writes, she sets out to maker her reader ask, 'What if this happened to me or my family?' With three children of her own, Samantha is well-versed to talk about how the aftershocks of crime impact upon families and communities.
