Doughty, Louise2023
OVER HALF A MILLION COPIES OF APPLE TREE YARD SOLD 'Psychologically acute. Terrific.' Daily Mail 'A page-turning read. Kept me reading well past bedtime!' VAL McDERMID 'Pacey and propulsive.' Guardian 'A rare combination of elegance and unbelievable tension . . . Utterly brilliant.' Joanna Cannon 'Gripping.' Marie Claire The latest from the Number One Sunday Times Bestselling author Louise Doughty Bird is a woman on the run. One minute, she's in a meeting in her office in Birmingham - the next, she's walking out on her job, her home, her life. It's a day she thought might come, one she's prepared for. But nothing could prepare her for what will happen next. As Bird tries to work out who exactly is on her trail, she must also decide who - if anyone - she can trust. Is her greatest fear that she will be hunted down, or that she will never be found? Readers are gripped by A Bird in Winter: ***** 'Bird is a character who will stay with me for a long time.' '***** As good as Apple Tree Yard, it was impossible to put this book down.' ***** 'Cleverly plotted and full of thought provoking situations and twists.' ***** 'If you like strong female leads that aren't perfect, then you will devour this.' ***** 'A beautiful, intricately plotted, and intriguing narrative.'
