This website is about me and, more importantly, the books I’ve written.

My new novel, The House, is available now in the UK, and will be published in 2018 in the US under the title The New Neighbors. It is a BBC Radio 2 Book Club choice.

The Child Who is available now in both the UK and the US. ‘Excellent’, said The Times. And, according to the Daily Mail, it ‘confirms [my] place at the literary top table’.

The Facility was described by the Daily Express on its release as ‘unputdownable . . . The Facility nails the reader’s attention from the off’.

Rupture (or, in the US, A Thousand Cuts) won a Betty Trask Award and was described by The Times as ‘absorbing, convincing and truly frightening’ and by The New York Times as ‘electrifying’ – which was nice of them.

You’ll find more details about all my books elsewhere on this site, as well as my blog, interviews and news about stuff that’s coming up. So come in, have a browse and let me know what you think. Thanks for sparing the time.
