A gripping novel about what happens when one women stands up for her beliefs From the author of The Lifeboat and Now and Again 'Dazzling' - The Sunday Times 'All the ingredients of a tense thriller' - Red For Maggie Rayburn, wife, mother and secretary at a munitions plant, life is pleasant, predictable and secure. When she finds proof of a high-level cover-up on her boss's desk, she impulsively takes it, turning her world upside down. Propelled by a desire to do good - and a new-found taste for excitement - Maggie starts to see injustice everywhere. Soon, her bottom drawer is filled with 'evidence', her town has turned against her, and she must decide how far she will go for the truth.

Dazzling layering of different people and different stories and of the leaps their minds make as they learn to open their eyes. The prose is strong, supple and sometimes infused with a magisterial rhythm that reflects the novel's commanding scope. This is a novel of the American dream, and of how that dream is shattered and betrayed -- Christina Patterson * Sunday Times * Now & Again doesn't disappoint. All the ingredients of a tense thriller with a domestic slant that got my heart involved -- Sarra Manning * Red * With consummate command of narrative, Charlotte Rogan nimbly brings together whistleblowers and soldiers in a damning-and page-turning-critique of America's military-industrial complex and its massive amount of collateral damage. It's the novel we deserve for the war we didn't -- Teddy Wayne, author of The Love Song of Jonny Valentine and Kapitoil With wit, humanity, and extraordinary clarity of vision, Rogan has found the uniting thread that weaves together contemporary American life. Now and Again is breathtaking in its scope and insight, revealing the interconnectedness of the prison-industrial complex, mass surveillance, environmental devastation, the moral vacuity of televangelists, failures of recent US military adventures, and the brutality of life for those on the margins. This is America from the ground up, full of ordinary people trying to make sense of their lives, driven by that brand of frontier idealism that might yet be our last best hope -- Patrick Flanery, author of Absolution and Fallen Land
