Finders, Keepers

Finders, Keepers

One woman’s secret is her neighbour’s opportunity.

‘It’s an accomplished and addictive addition to the great British tradition of spinster fiction, and Verity – perceptive about many things, blind to others – could well turn out to be as rich a portrait as in any novel this year’ The Sunday Times

‘A masterly slow-burn gripper’ Louise Candlish

‘Deliciously sly yet also profoundly moving – a twisty game of cat and mouse that keeps the reader guessing at every step’ JP Delaney

‘Pitch-perfect. I absolutely loved it’ Lucy Dawson

‘Elegant and astute, Finders Keepers is truly gripping’ Louise O’Neill

Ailsa Tilson moves with her husband and children to Trinity Fields in search of the new.
New project – a house to renovate. New people – no links to the past. New friends – especially her next-door neighbour, the lonely Verity, who needs her help.

Verity has lived in Trinity Fields all her life. She’s always resisted change. Her home and belongings are a shield, a defence to keep the outside world at bay. But something about the Tilsons piques her interest.

Just as her ivy creeps through the shared garden fence, so Verity will work her way into the Tilson family.

And once they realise how formidable she can be, it might well be too late.

‘Seriously superior psychological thriller… the language is honed as sharp as a stiletto. The murder mystery is teased out to the very last compelling page’ The Sunday Times Crime Club

‘A taut thriller with layer upon layer of suspense and twists right to the very last page’ Red

‘Well-paced thriller… Durrant builds a sense of menace and the ending is satisfying, with a believable twist’ Good Housekeeping

‘A delicious study in dark psychology, a narrator to keep you guessing and a real emotional punch’ Best Magazine

Riveting from the first page to the last. No one creates characters like Sabine Durrant. I was completely enthralled

Utterly immersive and compulsive. Pace, place, characters, plot ... It's a masterclass
Gill Hornby
Totally immersive, brilliantly written and creepily plausible
Claire McGowan
Extraordinary ... a beautifully written, gripping cross between Notes from a Scandal and Gone Girl, with a dash of Eleanor Oliphant. Ridiculously good
Mark Edwards
Completely WONDERFUL, her best book yet. I utterly loved it and could not put it down. Sabine has such a gift for those exquisite, telling details

Good Housekeeping
A delicious study in dark psychology, a narrator to keep you guessing and a real emotional punch
Best Magazine
This summer's most anticipated thriller, Finders, Keepers is deliciously slow-burning and hard to put down. Fans of Durrant's previous novels will relish the smart twists and turns and will be left guessing until the very end
Evening Standard
This well-paced, intelligent mystery benefits from finely-drawn characters and convincing psychological tension. Durrant explores the vicious extremes of female behaviour and asks us to take a peek at the raging traumas behind the calm masks of suburban respectability
Daily Mail
Suspenseful thriller. One not to miss
Woman
A smart, compelling and thoroughly haunting read
Mail on Sunday
Chilling
The Independent
Eerie
Woman & Home Online
A slow-burn thriller that sucks you in and keeps you wanting more. Just when you think you know someone, think again...
Heat
Engrossing psychological crime novel...the story plays with our sympathies and explores the boundary between devotion and resentment that exists in relationships of all kinds
Literary Review
An intelligent, twisty psychological thriller
The Observer
You think you know what's going on in this brilliant read, then you realise you so don't!
Fabulous
Durrant gently reveals her delicate exploration of damaged relationships, fragile friendships, missed potential, and what happens when ambition governs the way you treat others (...) An absorbing, classy read to keep you guessing
Evening Standard
A delicious study in dark psychology, this clever tale will keep you guessing
Real People
Reminiscent of Virago Classics and Alan Bennett monologues, it's an accomplished and addictive addition to the great British tradition of spinster fiction, and Verity - perceptive about many things, blind to others - could well turn out to be as rich a portrait as in any novel this year
