Waterstones Says

Chilling and utterly original, Nothing Important Happened Today evolves around a mysterious suicide cult whose leader does not seem to exist. Carver has written a thriller of distinction, driven by exquisite psychological tension and a terrifyingly plausible premise.

Longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2020

Nine suicides One Cult No leader

Nine people arrive one night on Chelsea Bridge. They've never met. But at the same time, they run, and leap to their deaths. Each of them received a letter in the post that morning, a pre-written suicide note, and a page containing only four words: Nothing important happened today.

That is how they knew they had been chosen to become a part of the People Of Choice: A mysterious suicide cult whose members have no knowledge of one another. Thirty-two people on that train witness the event. Two of them will be next.

By the morning, People Of Choice are appearing around the globe; it becomes a movement. A social media page that has lain dormant for four years suddenly has thousands of followers. The police are under pressure to find a link between the cult members, to locate a leader that does not seem to exist. How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?

“A novel of cults set mainly in LONDON”

I have no idea what genre this book is. It is fiction but it is also an exploration of the notion of what it means to be in a cult, to lead a cult and what lies at the heart of mass inculcation and obedience, with or... More
