Dubbed the 'Thriller of the Year' by Amanda Craig, Her is the stunning new novel from Harriet Lane, author of 2012 break-out hit Alys, Always.
Two women; two different worlds.
Emma is a struggling mother who has put everything on hold.
Nina is sophisticated and independent - entirely in control.
When the pair meet, Nina generously draws Emma into her life. But this isn't the first time the women's paths have crossed. Nina remembers Emma and she remembers what Emma did...
But what exactly does Nina want from her?
And how far will she go in pursuit of it?
Patricia Nicol of the Independent says: 'Harriet Lane is a deft conjurer of menacing middle-class scenarios. Her 2012 debut earned comparisons with Patricia Highsmith and Anita Brookner. In Her, a taut revenge drama, the same events are recounted in alternate chapters from the separate perspectives of two women in their late 30s who have met by apparent accident…
'Lane's career as a journalist included a stint as features editor on Tatler and there is forensic social observation here. Her London is recognisably real. Both Emma and Nina feel like women you might pass on a leafy Islington street. She has a sharp eye for telling detail… Unnervingly tense [and] tightly written… The endgame, when it comes, is shattering.'
