A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins

The bestselling author of 'The Girl on the Train' is back with a blazing new thriller

Published 07.09.21, 12:04 AM

Known for her slow-burn thrillers like Into the Water and The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins’ latest takes readers on another murder mystery adventure. Laura, who has a reputation for hot-headedness, finds herself at the wrong place at the wrong time when her one-night-stand is found brutally stabbed after he was last seen with her. 

Split between the perspectives of Laura, the victim’s neighbour Miriam, and the victim’s aunt Carla, the book is a gripping read. Set against a vivid London backdrop, A Slow Fire Burning is filled with surprising twists and turns from start to finish. Despite the multiple characters and the intricate storyline, the author’s control over the plot makes this a page-turner.
