        "Even a small dose of Insomnia... will likely give you a bad case of the jitters... It's a nimble suspense story, but it's even more disturbing as an account of how a restless brain can weaken and lethally doubt itself." — Washington Post

        "Pinborough specializes in steamy mysteries... cooked up in the outer reaches of her imagination... 'What could go wrong?' a character asks cheerfully at the end. Maybe it's the equivalent of the hand emerging from the grave at the end of the movie 'Carrie'. Or maybe not." — New York Times Book Review on Insomnia

        "As [Emma] struggles with intergenerational trauma and balancing her work life with her family life, her situation spirals into a dangerous and daunting tale... Insomnia is a natural follow up to [Pinborough's] bestselling thriller Behind Her Eyes." — Entertainment Weekly

        "Another mind-twisting, genre-bending rollercoaster from Queen of WTF Sarah Pinborough." — Ruth Ware, author of One By One

        "If you loved Behind Her Eyes, prepare to be totally and utterly blown away by Insomnia. Sarah Pinborough is a twisted genius." — Lisa Jewell

        "Put this book on your radar: Sarah Pinborough's Insomnia is the twistiest and most gripping thriller since Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train, an absolute must-read for suspense fans. The pages fly and the revelations deliver shock after shock. Don't sleep on this one– it's Sarah Pinborough's best yet." — Joe Hill, author of The Black Phone on Insomnia

        "Creepy as all get out – a gaslighting masterclass." — Ian Rankin on Insomnia

        "Sarah Pinborough is the master of the unexpected and Insomnia does not disappoint. This terrifying thriller about a family under threat from within is a total page-turner." — Gilly Macmillan

        "Absolutely brilliant, completely unputdownable and so satisfying – Pinborough just gets better and better" — Jenny Colgan

        "A whip-smart, page turning triumph." — Jane Shemilt, author of The Daughter on Insomnia

        "Oh. My. Word. Sarah Pinborough is the queen of the impossible, and her latest heart-pounding thriller will have you up all night." — Clare Mackintosh, author of Hostage on Insomnia

        "The inimitable Sarah Pinborough reaches new heights of ingenuity in Insomnia, the definition of up-all-night reading" — Erin Kelly, Sunday Times bestselling author of He Said/She Said on Insomnia

        "Another clever, original and highly addictive book from the brilliant Sarah Pinborough. Insomnia will keep you up all night. You won't be able to sleep until you've read it. — Alice Feeney, author of Rock Paper Scissors

        "What an absolute cracker of a thriller. Just when you think it's safe to carry on reading WHAM! Pinborough throws in another hand grenade.... Thank you for freaking me out in such a beautiful way! So, so clever and I was changing my mind left right and centre, right to the end! Absolutely bloody brilliant." — Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep on Insomnia

        "Insomnia successfully combines domestic suspense with a psychological thriller.... Pinborough's skill at showing characters at their best and worst is a mainstay of her some 20 novels." — Florida Sun-Sentinel

        "Gripping... As she strives to figure out who's trying to destroy her and why, the suspense becomes almost unbearable." — Publishers...

        Baldacci sends private investigator and ex-World War II veteran Aloysius Archer to Los Angeles--that is, Dream Town--for another dangerous case (one million copy first printing). Having crafted two Sam and Remi Fargo adventures with the late Cussler (Pirate and The Romanov Ransom), former California law enforcement officer Burcell takes the daring duo on another far-flung adventure in Clive Cussler's The Serpent's Eye (originally scheduled for Sept. 2021). In the New York Times best-selling Fisher's An Honest Lie, Rainy has been hiding out from her bad-news past atop a remote, fog-cloaked mountain but decides to risk a trip to Las Vegas with some friends, where one of them is trapped by a killer as bait to lure Rainy (10,000-copy hardcover and 200,000-copy paperback first printing). One Crimson Summer, thanks to mega-best-selling Graham, Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent Amy Larson is sent a toy red horse--a sign that she and FBI agent Hunter Forrest didn't wipe out the Doomsday cult that's about to fight a bloody turf war in northern Florida with several South American cartels (75,000-copy first printing). In best-selling Secrets of Midwives author Hepworth's latest, Tully and Rachel have every reason to resent The Younger Wife who's coming on the scene; their father is still married to their mother, now in a care facility for dementia, but plans to divorce her--which leads to the spilling of numerous toxic secrets (250,000-copy first printing). In the latest from the New York Times best-selling Pinborough, has-it-all heroine Emma Averell is beginning to suffer from Insomnia, which she fears may presage a descent into the insanity that destroyed her own mother's life (75,000-copy first printing). In the best-selling, award-winning Reich's Once a Thief, Simon Riske must prove that the Ferrari he's restored and sold for nine figures is not a fake, which brings him in contact with Anna Bildt, whose Swiss banker father has been blown up by a car bomb (75,000-copy first printing). In Rollins's Kingdom of Bones, postponed from March and September 2021, humans have become dullards while flora and fauna are suddenly ascendant; perhaps evolutionary forces have spun out of control, but it could be some fiendish plan (250,000-copy first printing). Letty Davenport, the smart, stubborn daughter of Sandford standby Lucas Davenport, becomes The Investigator, sent by her U.S. senator boss to figure out who's profiting from the theft of Texas crude oil--and why.

        January 24, 2022
        In this gripping if flawed domestic thriller from British author Pinborough (Behind Her Eyes), Leeds solicitor Emma Averell sees her enviable existence start to implode days before she turns 40, the age at which her mother’s psychotic breakdown shattered their family. As Emma struggles with insomnia, her mind races with obsessive thoughts—what if she really is going off the rails like her mother? Increasingly exhausted, she bungles client conferences and snaps at her stay-at-home husband, Robert, and their two children. Emma loses it when an emergency call from her estranged older sister, Phoebe, tricks her into a situation that lands her in a murder investigation. She becomes convinced she’s being gaslighted by either Phoebe or Robert, who kicks her out of the house because of professed concern about the impact her deteriorating mental state is having on their kids. As she strives to figure out who’s trying to destroy her and why, the suspense becomes almost unbearable. Only a paranormal-tinged deus ex machina to tie up the unruly plot twists disappoints. Readers should be prepared for a page-turner that at times is too unsettling to be thoroughly enjoyable. Agent: Grainne Fox, Fletcher & Co.

        Internationally bestselling author Pinborough brings her uniquely twisted genius to her fourth psychological thriller (following Dead to Her, 2020). Emma simply cannot sleep. Her fortieth birthday is almost here. The "Night Night" meds are not helping. Oddly, Emma's mother also developed insomnia just before her fortieth birthday. And that was right before she did an unspeakable thing. Too ill for prison, she was committed to a care facility where she has vegetated to the age of 75. Emma's older sister, Phoebe, always said that Emma inherited the same "bad blood." Despite her traumatic past, Emma loves her career, her family, and her home, but she feels them slipping away. Is she descending into madness, or is someone gaslighting her? Emma has given a few women reason to dislike her, but there is a spooky factor involved here that leads her to think this is something that has been on the way for quite a while. A real mind-twister, guaranteed to please fans of genre-bending thrillers.
