Waterstones Says

Turning on its head the cosy idyll of rural life, this near-unbearably tense thriller from the author of Sister is an outstanding novel that demands to be read in one sitting. Told from multiple perspectives in what feels allied to real time, Three Hours is an extraordinarily visceral exploration of an ordinary school under siege and the triggers that might lead to radicalisation, extremism and hate.

Three Hours to save the people you love.

From the bestselling author of Sister comes an electrifying, pulse-racing new novel that takes us deep into the heart of what it means to be human

Three hours is 180 minutes or 10,800 seconds.

It is a morning's lessons, a dress rehearsal of Macbeth, a snowy trek through the woods.

It is an eternity waiting for news. Or a countdown to something terrible.

It is 180 minutes to discover who you will die for and what men will kill for.

In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege. From the wounded headmaster in the library, unable to help his trapped pupils and staff, to teenage Hannah in love for the first time, to the parents gathering desperate for news, to the 16 year old Syrian refugee trying to rescue his little brother, to the police psychologist who must identify the gunmen, to the students taking refuge in the school theatre, all experience the most intense hours of their lives, where evil and terror are met by courage, love and redemption.
