Set in Reykjavik, against the backdrop of the financial crash and the
volcanic eruption, Snare is the fast-paced, chilling tale of a desperate
mother caught up in a world of ruthless criminality. Lilja Sigurdaróttir
is a star in her native Iceland, but Snare, the first in her Reykjavik Noir
trilogy, is her first novel to be translated into English. It’s already an
international bestseller, with film rights sold to Palomar Pictures.
Catherine Ryan Howard’s compelling thriller, The Liar’s Girl, takes us
to Dublin, where the emergence of a copy-cat serial killer forces a young
woman to return to the homeland — and identity — she abandoned, and
confront her worst nightmare. Ryan’s debut, Distress Signals, was an
Irish Times and USA Today bestseller, shortlisted for the CWA New Blood
Dagger 2017. It won Best Mystery at the US Independent Press Awards.
