            Vita Marlowe may be small, but she greets New York City as a boxer greets an opponent before a fight: she sets her jaw at it. Fresh off the boat from England, she has a job to do in the city. Her beloved grandfather Jack has been cheated out of his home and possessions by the inf...amous mafia boss, Victor Zaroff. Seeing Jack's spirit is broken, Vita is frightened and desperate to make him happy again, so she devises a plan to outwit his enemies and recover his fortune. But the plan requires some highly unusual skills - and so she sets about finding some highly unusual friends to help her out. Katherine Rundell's fifth novel is a heist as never seen before - the story of a girl who will do anything to defend the grandfather she loves and whose capacity for friendship, generosity and compassion wins the hearts of everyone she meets.

            The highly-anticipated and brilliantly crafted crime-thriller sequel to the no.1 debut of 2019, A GOOD GIRL'S GUIDE TO MURDER Pip Fitz-Amobi is determined that the media won't rewrite the truth of the local murder case that she and Ravi Singh worked so hard to just recently solve.... And so, she releases a podcast covering exactly what happened - and unexpectedly finds herself with a massive and passionate following. When the six-year anniversary of the victims' deaths arrives, fresh from hearing the truth of her podcast, Pip's town decide to host a memorial. And the past, it seems, has finally been laid to rest. But when another young person goes missing, it turns out that Little Kilton is hiding more than one dark secret . . . and this time EVERYONE is listening to hear whether Pip and Ravi can find the victim, before it's too late. Perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying, Eva Dolan, C L Taylor, We Were Liars and Riverdale Holly Jackson is 25 years old. She grew up in Buckinghamshire and started writing stories from a young age, completing her first attempt at a novel aged fifteen. She is a massive true-crime fan and her hobbies include binge-playing video games and pointing out grammatical errors in street signs. Praise for A Good Girl's Guide to Murder: 'A fiendishly-plotted mystery that kept me guessing until the very end.' - Laura Purcell, bestselling author of The Silent Companions 'There is a lot to really enjoy in this story and there is great energy to the writing, as well as some fine characterization' - Peter James, award-winning and no.1 bestselling crime thriller author of Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series 'Twisty, compulsive and so, so clever' - Savannah Brown, author of The Truth About Keeping Secrets 'This book was a delight from start to finish. I laughed. I cried. And I very much enjoyed attempting to solve the case with Pip (who I now want to be my best friend). I didn't guess the twist, and I don't think many people will.
