**Selected for BBC 2 Between the Covers 2023** **WINNER Crime Novel of the Year, Irish Book Awards 2023** **SHORTLISTED for The Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award** **LONGLISTED for the Goldsboro Books Glass Bell Award 2024** Sally Diamond cannot understand why what she did was so strange. She was only doing what her father told her to do, to put him out with the rubbish when he died. Now Sally is the centre of attention, not only from the hungry media and police detectives, but also a sinister voice from a past she cannot remember. As she begins to discover the horrors of her childhood, Sally steps into the world for the first time, making new friends and big decisions, and learning that people don't always mean what they say. But who is the man observing Sally from the other side of the world? And why does her neighbour seem to be obsessed with her? Sally's trust issues are about to be severely challenged . . . ***** 'In Sally Diamond, Nugent has given us an astounding creation with a singular voice . . . an absorbing, twisty, compulsive psychological thriller with surprising humour and pathos' Sunday Independent 'Strikingly well-observed and consistently surprising' The Times 'Incredible' Sara Cox 'Strange indeed . . . and smart, too! Shocking, disturbing and utterly original, Strange Sally Diamond will grip you from first page to last' Paula Hawkins 'Irresistibly compelling, this dark story is shocking yet endearing. A brilliant read that will suck you in' Crime Monthly 'Liz Nugent has outdone herself. Twisted and twisty, dark and gripping, no one is going to forget Sally Diamond in a hurry!' Graham Norton 'It creeped me out (in a good way) . . . Terrific' Ian Rankin 'Dark, compelling and deeply moving' Ruth Ware 'So, so good! Sally gets under your skin and worms her way into your heart. I didn't want it to end' Jane Fallon 'I'm lost in admiration for Liz and her writing . . . vivid, pacy, taut but so very moving' Marian Keyes 'Jaw-droppingly clever . . . One of the best books I've read in a long, long time. I can't stop thinking about it' Lucy Foley 'An outstanding achievement which transforms the dark psychological thriller map with both bravura and delicacy. One for the ages' Maxim Jakubowski
