We are thrilled to announce that the twisty thriller debut Greenwich Park by Katherine Faulkner is now published in the US by Simon & Schuster. This pacey story about one woman who meets an unpredictable mother-to-be at her very first neonatal class made a big splash when it first published in 2021 in the UK (Bloomsbury), and we cannot wait for US readers to get their hands on a copy.

The debut created a huge amount of buzz back in 2019. It was snapped up by Alison Hennessey at Bloomsbury after a four-way auction, and Jackie Cantor at Simon & Schuster in the US shortly after. Excitement has been building in the run-up to this highly-anticipated publication. Marie Claire called it one of the books to get ‘excited about‘ this 2022, while Off The Shelf said it was one of its ‘most anticipated books‘ of 2022, and Goodreads included it in its ‘hot and fresh‘ list of new novels. Early reviews for this book have been nothing but positive:

“Gripping and haunting and gorgeously suspenseful. I couldn’t put this thriller down and can’t recommend it highly enough.” — Zakiya Dalila Harris, author of The Other Black Girl

“A gloriously tangled game of cat and mouse that kept the twists coming until the very last moment.” –Ruth Ware, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One By One

“Wonderfully addictive and electric, Greenwich Park gets under your skin from the very first pages and it’s impossible to look away from the tangle of friendships, the haunting of a guilty past, and the unease of a growing obsession. While many thrillers are set in early motherhood, Katherine Faulkner brilliantly explores the anxious weeks before the baby is born, when the tension is as high as our hopes. I can’t wait to read what Faulkner writes next.” –Ashley Audrain, New York Times bestselling author of The Push

“A fantastically addictive read. It’s so pacy, and there’s a real sense of dread on every page . Fabulously unpleasant characters, and a beating feminist heart .” –Abigail Dean, New York Times bestselling author of Girl A

“I devoured Greenwich Park in two greedy sittings. The writing is razor-sharp, the characters deliciously problematic, and the ending utterly gasp-worthy. You’ll remember this thriller long after the final page.”– Robin Morgan-Bentley, author of The Wreckage

“Deliciously dark and deftly plotted. Faulkner mines the seam of guilt beneath her characters’ ‘perfect’  lives with devastating precision.” –Lesley Kara, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Rumour

We can’t wait for readers to step inside Greenwich Park… 

Helen’s idyllic life—handsome architect husband, gorgeous Victorian house, and cherished baby on the way (after years of trying)—begins to change the day she attends her first prenatal class and meets Rachel, an unpredictable single mother-to-be. Rachel doesn’t seem very maternal: she smokes, drinks, and professes little interest in parenthood. Still, Helen is drawn to her. Maybe Rachel just needs a friend. And to be honest, Helen’s a bit lonely herself. At least Rachel is fun to be with. She makes Helen laugh, invites her confidences, and distracts her from her fears.

But her increasingly erratic behavior is unsettling. And Helen’s not the only one who’s noticed. Her friends and family begin to suspect that her strange new friend may be linked to their shared history in unexpected ways. When Rachel threatens to expose a past crime that could destroy all of their lives, it becomes clear that there are more than a few secrets laying beneath the broad-leaved trees and warm lamplight of Greenwich Park.

Congratulations, Katherine, on this very special day!
