'A big-hearted, big-brain, novel that you'll finish in three days and think about for the rest of the year. Wonderful.' - Stuart Turton

Bestselling author Adam Hamdy returns with a story of soulmates torn apart by circumstance and three deaths that haunt the past, present and future. The Other Side of Night is a genre-defying book unlike any you've ever read and a spellbinding novel about love, sacrifice and endless possibilities.

David Asha wants to tell you a story about three people:

Elliott Asha, his son, broken by a loss that will redeem him.

Ben Elmys, a surrogate father and David's trusted friend, a man who might also be a murderer.

Harriet Kealty, a retired detective searching for answers to three mysterious deaths, while also investigating a man who might turn out to be the love of her life.

Every word David tells you is true, but you will think it fiction . . .

“Disappointing”

This is one of those books where to give something away is to give everything away. There’s a core idea here that underpins the story and in consequence nothing makes sense until suddenly it all does. So I’m going to... More
