The Other Mothers follows the story of ex-journalist Tash, who is in search of a story to launch her freelance career. During this search, she is also drawn into a circle of other mothers who she meets through her new son’s playgroup. They seem to have everything, but behind the glamour and overpriced lattes and spa days, these women also have their secrets. Addictive, suspenseful and pacy, this is Katherine Faulkner at her very best.
Greenwich Park, Faulkner’s debut, was a smash hit: it was chosen as Waterstones’ Thriller of the Month (March 2021), Waterstones’ Best Paperback of 2022, and was the winner for Best Thriller/Suspense in the 2023 Audie Awards. On top of these achievements, Greenwich Park hit the USA Today bestseller list, and also jumped straight onto the Canadian bestseller list, while reaching No. 2 in the Times bestseller list.
It’s no surprise that buzz and excitement has been building for The Other Mothers following the enormous success of Greenwich Park. The Other Mothers was selected as Apple’s Thriller of the Month for May 2023, and reviews have been pouring in thick and fast.

“A fast-paced, decadent skewering of upper-middle-class motherhood.” – Abigail Dean
“The Other Mothers is a first-class thriller, with taut prose, gasp-worthy twists and characters you’ll love to hate. Faulkner has done it again – fans of Greenwich Park won’t be disappointed.” – Robin Morgan-Bentley
