Waterstones Says

The popular presenter and author of Fathers and Sons spins an unbearably suspenseful thriller set in the bucolic environs of the Cotswolds, as a protective father goes to extreme lengths to track down the online troll who ruined his daughter's life.

When Nick Wychwood loses his wife Elise in a shocking accident, he is left to bring up their daughter Lucy on his own. Moving house gives them the fresh start that they need, where they can put tragedy behind them and forge new friendships.
 
But Lucy, is fragile, vulnerable, easily led. When someone offers her their shoulder, their warmth and understanding, even love, she accepts, unquestioningly. But this ‘someone’ is an online monster; dangerous, deceptive, manipulative – and patiently laying a deadly trap.
 
As he uncovers the hideous truth of what happened to his beloved daughter, Nick vows to track down the person behind the screen. And when he succeeds, a devastating reckoning awaits…
 
Set in the picturesque Cotswolds, Father’s Day explores the power of paternal love, the evil of online trolling, and the morality of extrajudicial punishment. Father’s Day; a day of vengeance.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘A dark, twisty and frightening tale of revenge – gripping’ Shari Lapena, author of Everyone Here is Lying ‘Timely and captivating, Father’s Day by Richard Madeley is impossible to put down’ Laura Dave, author of The Last Thing He Told Me ‘Taut, twisty and unsettling, this single-sitting thriller will have you racing through the pages with a knot in your stomach. Loved it!’ Ellery Lloyd, author of The Club ‘Extraordinarily timely, horrific and tender... A real tour de force of crime fiction for our times’ Susan Lewis, author of A Sicilian Affair ‘Twisty, tense and thought-provoking, Father’s Day will have you flying through the pages’ JP Delaney, author of The Girl Before ‘A real page-turner… The depictions of horror in beautiful locations such as Cornwall and the Cotswolds ride shotgun with the tabloid energy driving a broadsheet interrogation’ Radio Times ‘The writing is straightforward, the tone is domestic and Nick’s feelings are easy to share. If it were not for the wickedness of some of the activities involved, this might almost qualify as a cosy crime novel’ Literary Review ‘A powerful read’ Bella ‘Devastating’ That’s Life! ‘Pulse-pounding... a real page-turner' Woman's Weekly ‘Will keep you reading late into the night' Woman's Own ‘He's thought of everything, covered his tracks, committed the perfect crime... or has he? A disturbing exploration of the internet, not so much the Wild West as the Seventh Circle of Hell' Saga

Praise for Richard Madeley’s novels: ‘An authentic and exciting story. The perfect summer read’ Clare Mackintosh ‘Original, unexpected and thrilling’ Jojo Moyes ‘Immaculate storytelling, pacy and beautifully written’ Sadie Jones ‘An unsettlingly tense treat’ Heat ‘A perfect summer read with a shocking twist’ OK!
