EVERYONE LOVES A TRUE-CRIME PODCAST . . . UNTIL THEY HAVE A STARRING ROLE. *SELECTED AS ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S BOOKS OF THE MONTH* 'A twisting, darkly comic, thrill-a-minute ride across Europe. If you loved Killing Eve, you'll devour Conviction' Erin Kelly 'Denise Mina brilliantly manages to be funny, heart-wrenching, gut-punching and addictive all at once: a fabulous, captivating novel' Nicci French From 'the woman who may be Britain's finest living crime novelist' (Daily Telegraph), Conviction stars a strong female protagonist who is obsessed by true-crime podcasts and decides, one day, to investigate one of the unsolved crimes herself. It's just a normal morning for Anna McDonald. Gym kits, packed lunches, getting everyone up and ready. Until she opens the front door to her best friend, Estelle. Anna turns to see her own husband at the top of the stairs, suitcase in hand. They're leaving together and they're taking Anna's two daughters with them. Left alone in the big, dark house, Anna can't think, she can't take it in. With her safe, predictable world shattered, she distracts herself with a story: a true-crime podcast. There's a sunken yacht in the Mediterranean, multiple murders and a hint of power and corruption. Then Anna realises she knew one of the victims in another life. She is convinced she knows what happened. Her past, so carefully hidden until now, will no longer stay silent. This is a murder she can't ignore, and she throws herself into investigating the case. But little does she know, her past and present lives are about to collide, sending everything she has worked so hard to achieve into freefall. Conviction is the compelling and unique new thriller from multiple award-winner and author of THE LONG DROP, Denise Mina. 'Such a delight: playful, fast-paced, and entirely compulsive' Ann Cleeves 'A dark star of a novel, blazingly intense, up-to-the-minute fresh, and exciting as all hell' A. J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

"A twisting, darkly comic, thrill-a-minute ride across Europe. If you loved Killing Eve, you'll devour Conviction" -- Erin Kelly "A mischievous sense of fun exists alongside a capacity to generate genuine edge-of-your-seat thrills and some thought-provoking moments. You won't have more fun with a book this year" -- Jake Kerridge * Sunday Express * "Not a single word is wasted in this beautifully written novel. Unsettling, evocative and staggeringly good, it is possibly Mina's finest achievement" * Daily Express * "Denise Mina brilliantly manages to be funny, heart-wrenching, gut-punching and addictive all at once: a fabulous, captivating novel" -- Nicci French "A wonderfully atmospheric, unsettling read." -- Louise Rhind-Tutt * i * "Denise Mina is crime-writing royalty" -- Val McDermid "Deeply unsettling and thought provoking in all the best ways" -- Doug Johnstone * Big Issue * "The Long Drop is an exceptional book. The pages reek of fifties Glasgow, forming an oppressive backdrop to a true crime story that fascinates and appals from start to finish. Mina's prose cuts to the bone, laying bare the prideful wickedness of men in a tale that is as often touching as it is frightening. A feast of a crime novel." * Stuart Neville * "One of the most talented, most daring, most humane writers of the past twenty years . . . Conviction is her finest work to date: a dark star of a novel, blazingly intese, up-to-the-minute fresh, and exciting as all hell" -- A. J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window "The Long Drop is a fascinating, quietly insidious work, unsettling but absorbing" -- Marcel Berlins * The Times * "Endlessly surprising... This incredible novel...seems to have been written in a white-hot rage.... Mina has always written with a head full of ideas and a mouth full of tough talk. Here, she's finally got a story big enough to hold it all together." * New York Times * "The most exciting crime writer to have emerged in Britain for years" -- Ian Rankin "It is a beautifully written book, a masterpiece by the woman who may be Britain's finest living crime novelist" * Daily Telegraph * "Such a delight: playful, fast-paced, and entirely compulsive" -- Ann Cleeves "The Long Drop is not just a success and a thrilling read in its own right, but a game-changer for the genre." -- Stuart Kelly * Scotland on Sunday *
