Night Will Find You by Julia Heaberlin

The Sunday Times bestselling author of Black Eyed Susans returns with a compelling story about a woman who holds the key to a decades-old missing child case. 

As a child, Vivvy Bouchet’s premonition saved a young boy’s life, who is now a police officer, convincing Bouchet to use her psychic powers to solve a high-profile case of the disappearance of three-year-old Lizzie Solomon. 

Currently being developed as a TV series by FOX Network, the book explores the dangerous meeting of conspiracy theories, our beliefs and the blurred lines of truth. 

The Interpreter by Brooke Robinson

Innocent or guilty, it is all a matter of interpretation. The most dangerous person in the courtroom is not the killer.

Revelle is a court interpreter. Spending her days translating for murderers, fraudsters and their victims, she knows the power of words. When she realises a guilty man is about to be labelled innocent, she risks it all and twists the verdict. But someone knows what she’s done.

This crime debut by Brooke Robinson is a must-read for Louise Candlish, Harriet Tyce and Alex Michaelides fans. 

Wavewalker: Breaking Free by Suzanne Heywood

By the Sunday Times Bestselling author of What Does Jeremy Think?, Wavewalker is a true story of how a child’s lifetime adventure became its worst nightmare. 

Seven-year-old Suzanne Heywood sets sail with her parents and brother on a three-year voyage around the world, which turned into a decade-long way of life, through storms, shipwrecks, reefs and isolation, with little formal schooling.

At seventeen, Suzanne earned an interview at Oxford University and returned to the UK. 

This memoir uncovers Heywood’s astonishing upbringing and survival story as a child deprived of safety, friendships, schooling, and occasionally drinking water.
