Waterstones Says

Once again Renee Knight gets underneath the reader’s skin with the deliciously sinister tale of an ignored secretary and the sensitive – and potentially highly damaging – information that she has at her disposal. Perfectly paced and chillingly credible, The Secretary is the work of a thriller writer at the top of her game.

This is a signed edition, a standard edition is available here

Who holds the most power in the room? Is it the one who speaks loudest, who looks the part, who has the most money, who commands the most respect? Or perhaps it's someone like Christine Butcher: a meek, overlooked figure, who silently bears witness as information is shared and secrets are whispered.

Someone who quietly, perhaps even unwittingly, gathers together knowledge of the people she's there to serve - the ones who don't notice her, the ones who consider themselves to be important. There's a fine line between loyalty and obsession. And when someone like Christine Butcher is pushed to her limit, she might just become the most dangerous person in the room...

The eagerly anticipated new thriller from the No.1 bestselling author of Disclaimer.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A cool, contemporary, whip-smart thriller.' - Paula Hawkins, bestselling author of The Girl on the Train and Into the Water

'A black diamond of a thriller - gleaming, sharp, deeply dark - but so much more: a cool, elegant novel with a heartbeat, a pulse, and a sting in its tail.' - A. J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

'Clever, clever, clever. At the black heart of this story is a personal assistant - the colleague in your office who hears and knows everything about everyone - and Renee leads us on a deeply unsettling exploration of the limits of loyalty. Believe me, chats by the photocopier will never be the same...' - Fiona Barton, bestselling author of The Widow

'Woah, you are in for a treat with The Secretary! Dark and intriguing with utterly compelling characters. I genuinely couldn't put it down.' - Laura Marshall, author of Friend Request

'An engrossing study of twisted dynamics in a relationship where one person holds all the power. Fans of Notes on a Scandal will love it.' - Tammy Cohen, author of They All Fall Down
