Bestselling author Deborah O’Connor’s fabulously gripping psychological thriller, The Dangerous Kind, is published in paperback today by Zaffre / Bonnier.

This brilliant novel will appeal to to fans of The Silent Patient and He Said/She Said, and portrays a world which asks: What if the people you trust are the ones you should fear most?

We all recognise them: those who send prickles up the back of our necks. The charmers, the liars, the manipulators. Those who have the potential to go that one step too far. And then take another step.

Each week Jessamine Gooch broadcasts a radio show about convicted killers. But when she is approached for help in solving a current case, around a troubled missing woman, she faiis to realise there is a dark figure closer to home, one that threatens the safety of her own family . . .

Relentlessly gripping, The Dangerous Kind is a thriller that will make you second-guess everyone you meet.
