Keeper

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
An addictive literary thriller about a crime as shocking as it is commonplace.

When Katie Straw's body is pulled from the waters of the local suicide spot, the police are ready to write it off as a standard-issue female suicide. But the residents of the domestic violence shelter where Katie worked disagree. These women have spent weeks or even years waiting for the men they're running from to catch up with them. They know immediately: This was murder.
Still, Detective Dan Whitworth and his team expect an open-and-shut case--until they discover evidence that suggests Katie wasn't who she appeared. Weaving together the investigation with Katie's final months as it barrels toward the truth, The Keeper is a riveting mystery and a searing examination of violence against women and the structures that allow it to continue, marking the debut of an incredible new voice in crime fiction.

Praise for this book

"Tense, beautiful and lyrical. Everyone should read this book." - Sara Collins

"Reading Keeper is a visceral experience ... cleverly reminding us that for some women simply existing in a man's world is more dangerous than anything else." - Araminta Hall

"Extraordinary and compelling." - Cara Hunter

"Intense and compassionate . . . it made me furious and sad, but it also made me feel seen." - Hanna Jameson

"Grips from the first page. Powerful, beautifully written and chillingly close to the bone, this is crime fiction with a conscience. Essential reading." - Erin Kelly

"Made me rage and weep and understand a little better. A powerful book telling stories that need to be heard." - Rosamund Lupton

"It made me want to shout out in anger." - Val McDermid

"Gripping, devastating...breathtaking." - Clare Mackintosh

"Wickedly paced and utterly chilling, making space for the interior lives of its victims and their gradually shrinking worlds, all the while exposing the failures of the systems that are supposed to protect them. As compulsive as it is heartbreaking." - Rosie Price

"Pacy, absorbing and electric in its detail...Men should read this book, and I'd be shocked to meet a woman who doesn't find some part of herself here." - Beth Underdown

"A new young writer I believe in." - Jeanette Winterson
