A Slow Fire Burning (Paperback) Paula Hawkins (author)



Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger 2022

What is wrong with you?

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.

Look what you started.

‘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

‘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

‘My Book of the Month, for which I predict big things… an intriguing, unputdownable thriller that is as much about the compelling, damaged characters as it is about the intricate plot.’ – Alice O’Keeffe, The Bookseller

‘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

‘Paula Hawkins’ plotting is meticulous. A Slow Fire Burning is a clever onion of a book, expertly peeled.’ – Belinda Bauer
