Waterstones Says

Described as ‘the best crime novel I’ve read in a very long time’ by Val McDermid, Snap is a genre-defying novel that shows the lifetime’s fallout from the decision of a moment.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018

Shortlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2019 

A thrilling new novel from the author of Rubbernecker.

'The best crime novel I've read in a very long time.' – Val McDermid

Snap decisions can be dangerous…

On a stifling summer's day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack's in charge, she'd said. I won't be long.

But she doesn't come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever.

Three years later, Jack is still in charge - of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they're alone in the house, and - quite suddenly - of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother…

Described as ‘Thomas Harris crossed with Kate Atkinson’ by the Daily Mirror who called her a novelist who ‘has shifted the boundaries of what makes a truly gripping, terrifying thriller, Belinda Bauer is a crime writer with a knack for getting under the skin of her characters. Her latest thriller, which considers the devastating long-term impact of momentary snap judgements, confirms her as one of the most exciting novelist writing today.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The best crime novel I've read in a very long time.' - Val McDermid 

'Snap is the best kind of crime novel - it gives you chills, it makes you think, and it touches your heart. I loved it!' - Sarah Pinborough

'Original, pacy and thoroughly entertaining... a cracking read.' - Clare Mackintosh

'If you loved Steven Lamb in Bauer's debut Blacklands you will love Jack Bright in Snap. No one writes crime novels like Belinda Bauer, with such a rare blend of darkness, humour and heart. She's a crime writing genius and no mistake' - C.L Taylor

'Intelligent entertainment that keeps you guessing' - The Sunday Times

Unique, haunting…and bonkers. If I had to describe this book in a nutshell, that’s what comes to mind. And just so you know, I’m a big fan of bonkers.

Initially, it’s like you’re reading 2 books the are very... More
