After first launching in hardback this time last year, we are excited that The Maid, the internationally bestselling debut by Nita Prose, is now out in US paperback.

A locked-room mystery with an unforgettable heroine at its heart, The Maid follows hotel maid Molly, who is pulled into a murder investigation after finding a wealthy guest dead in his room.

The Maid was one of last year’s most highly anticipated debuts, and published in January 2022 to worldwide acclaim. It charted for twelve weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, hitting the prestigious No.1 spot, and spent eight incredible weeks in the No.1 position on the Toronto Star Canadian Fiction list. Translation rights to The Maid have been sold in 36 international territories to date, and Film rights have been optioned by Universal with Florence Pugh set to star.

On top of this, The Maid was a Good Morning America Book Club pick, one of The Washington Post’s Best Mysteries and Thrillers of 2022, one of Amazon’s Top 20 Best Books of the Year, one of Amazon’s Best Mystery & Thriller Books of 2022, Audible’s Best of 2022 in the Mysteries & Thrillers category, Reader’s Digest‘s No.1 Book of 2022, one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Mysteries & Thrillers of 2022, Goodreads Choice Winner in the Mystery & Thriller category, and a Finalist in the Debut Novel category.

Congratulations, Nita! We are so excited to see the paperback edition take the world by storm, as more readers discover the word of the Regency Grand Hotel and our charming heroine Molly. Readers in Canada don’t have long to wait for their paperback copies either, as The Maid is out in Canadian paperback on January 4th.
