We’re absolutely thrilled that The Other Mothers, the twisty new novel by Katherine Faulkner, publishes today in North America with Simon & Schuster / Gallery Books. From the author of the internationally bestselling Greenwich Park, The Other Mothers is a story about secrets, inner circles, class and motherhood, set in an exclusive London community.

The Other Mothers has already made a huge splash since its UK publication. It was selected as Apple’s Thriller of the Month in May, and has been chosen as an Indie Book Club pick for December 2023, as well as a December 2023 LibraryReads list pick. This follows the success of Katherine’s debut novel, Greenwich Park, which was a smash hit. It was chosen as Waterstones Thriller of the Month and was the winner of Best Thriller/Suspense in the 2023 Audie Awards and Best Mainstream/Commercial Novel at the Killer Nashville’s award ceremony, climbing to #2 in The Times paperback fiction charts and #6 in the Globe and Mail.

When a young nanny is found dead in mysterious circumstances, new mom, Tash, is intrigued. She has been searching for a story to launch her career as a freelance journalist. But she has also been searching for something else—new friends to help her navigate motherhood.

She sees them at her son’s new playgroup. The other mothers. A group of sleek, sophisticated women who live in a neighborhood of tree-lined avenues and stunning houses. The sort of mothers Tash herself would like to be. When the mothers welcome her into their circle, Tash discovers the kind of life she has always dreamt of—their elegant London townhouses a far cry from her cramped basement flat and endless bills. She is quickly swept up into their wealthy world via coffees, cocktails, and playdates.

But when another young woman is found dead, it’s clear there’s much more to the community than meets the eye. The more Tash investigates, the more she’s led uncomfortably close to the other mothers. Are these women really her friends? Or is there another, more dangerous reason why she has been so quickly accepted into their exclusive world? Who, exactly, is investigating who?
