Sophie Hannah is an internationally bestselling British novelist and poet, best known for her psychological crime fiction.
Hannah began her literary career as a poet, publishing her first collection The Hero and the Girl Next Door (1995) at the age of 24. It was followed by five further books of poetry, including Marrying the Ugly Millionaire (2015). She has been shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize, and her poetry is studied at GCSE and A-level throughout the UK.
Hannah’s first novel, Little Face, was published in 2006, opening her bestselling Culver Valley Crime series of psychological thrillers featuring the characters Simon Waterhouse and Charlie Zailer. The Point of Rescue (2008) and The Other Half Lives (2009) were adapted as the two-part drama series Case Sensitive (2011-2013) for ITV.
Hannah is also the author of the internationally bestselling series of novels based on Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot. The first installment, The Monogram Murders, came out in 2014, followed by Closed Casket (2016), The Mystery of Three Quarters (2018) and The Killings at Kingfisher Hill (2020).
Drenched with suspense, intrigue and spiky dialogue, The Killings at Kingfisher Hill sees Hannah’s reimagined Poirot return to solve another Golden Age murder mystery. Capturing the essence of one the most beloved literary detectives of all time and employing the same remarkable levels of delicious unpredictability as his creator, Hannah truly is Christie’s rightful heir.
The bestselling author of Haven't They Grown delivers another superbly constructed and utterly engrossing mystery centred upon an impossible murder committed at an exclusive couple's-only resort.
