Thriller! Rebecca Fleet and Simon Lelic with brand new books

Posted on 04/03/2020

Rebecca Fleet’s The House Swap took domestic noir to a whole new level when it was released in 2018, called “dark, smart, sexy, gripping, and totally brilliant”, and her long-awaited follow-up, The Second Wife, is out in bookshops and available to buy online this week – as always, with free P&P and a sizeable discount.

The Second Wife deals with Alex, determined to build a happy family with his daughter Jade after the tragic death of her mother. New wife Natalie changes his life, but when the family home is gutted by fire and Jade insists she saw a man in the house, Alex is faced with an impossible choice: believe his wife or his daughter? And as Natalie’s story unravels, Alex realises that his new wife has a history. Everyone brings baggage to a relationship. But this time, the past could be deadly…

Rebecca isn’t our only author, though, with a thriller on the way. Simon Lelic’s new pulsepounder, The Search Party, has arrived in proof form ahead of an August release, and early readers are saying it’s his best yet.
