Rachel Ryan’s The Woman Outside My Door
Just published by Simon & Schuster Canada, we are so excited to introduce a brand-new voice in thriller writing to the stage, Dubliner Rachel Ryan.
The Woman Outside My Door is about a young mother who can't shake the feeling that her son's "imaginary" friend is putting him in very real danger. Acquiring Rachel’s debut for Piatkus in the UK, Commissioning Editor Hannah Wann said, ‘…an eerie, beautifully written thriller with an emotional punch that will take your breath away. Rachel is such an exciting debut talent and I can’t wait to get this very special novel into reader’s hands.’ Advance praise for the novel has been building, with Liz Nugent reading the novel in one sitting: ‘A roller coaster of a read. It never flags – the pace is relentless, resulting in a denouement that will take your breath away.’ Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Flight said, ’Rachel Ryan shines in this creepy and chilling debut…You will fly through the pages of this tense and fast-paced story, and the giant twist at the end will leave your heart pounding.’ Robyn Harding, internationally bestselling author of The Party loved Rachel’s novel too: ‘Packed with jaw-dropping moments, The Woman Outside My Door is a twisty thriller with hidden depths. I gobbled it up.’
The Woman Outside My Door will be published by Simon & Schuster in the US on January 5th and will be published as Hidden Lies by Piatkus in the UK on January 14th.
