Join No.1 bestselling author Paula Hawkins – the writer behind the global phenomenon The Girl on the Train and Sunday Times bestseller Into the Water – to be among the first to hear about her highly-anticipated new thriller, A Slow Fire Burning.

Don’t miss your chance to get a SIGNED hardback copy of A Slow Fire Burning with your ticket for just £25/$34.83 (including P&P). The first 200 copies sold will be signed, so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. Copies will be received within 10 days following the event.

Laura has spent most of her life being judged. She's seen as hot-tempered, troubled, a loner. Some even call her dangerous.

Miriam knows that just because Laura is witnessed leaving the scene of a horrific murder with blood on her clothes, that doesn't mean she's a killer. Bitter experience has taught her how easy it is to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Carla is reeling from the brutal murder of her nephew. She trusts no one: good people are capable of terrible deeds. But how far will she go to find peace?

Innocent or guilty, everyone is damaged. Some are damaged enough to kill.

A deeply human story full of knock-you-sideways twists, A Slow Fire Burning confirms Paula as one of the most unique and impressive voices in thriller writing today. Don’t miss out on this exclusive event to find out more about Paula’s approach to writing, and how she still manages to surprise even the most hardened thriller readers.

‘I love Paula Hawkins, and this is why - A Slow Fire Burning twists and turns like a great thriller should, but it's also deep, intelligent and intensely human . . . the characters are just like people you know . . . or maybe even just like you yourself. Hawkins is proving herself a worthy 21st century heir to Barbara Vine and Patricia Highsmith.’ Lee Child

‘From the first sentence to the last, this explosive, startling novel grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. Fiendishly clever and with a wonderful sense of place too. Go read!’ Kate Mosse
