Paula Hawkins, Look What You Started...

Paula Hawkins, Look What You Started...


New novel from bestselling thriller writer

Paula Hawkins, the bestselling author of The Girl on the Train and Into the Water, is in conversation about her wonderful new novel, A Slow Fire Burning. It’s a character-driven tale of love and loss that finds three women caught up in the aftermath of a brutal murder. One is known to be hot-tempered, troubled, maybe even dangerous. Another realises that appearances are deceptive — someone leaving a murder scene covered in blood isn’t necessarily the killer. The third, the murder victim’s aunt, bears scars and secrets connected to an earlier loss. Innocent or guilty, everyone in this novel is damaged in some way — and someone is damaged enough to kill!

“With a beautifully wrought cast of characters who are real and likeable even when they are complicated and flawed, a fantastic, picturesque London setting, twists and turns galore and exquisite prose, this is a high class read. Paula Hawkins is a genius.” — Lisa Jewell
