A twisty new thriller from the acclaimed author of The House Swap.

After the death of his first wife, Alex has been given a second lease on life with Natalie, to whom he is newly married. Living in Brighton with Alex’s thirteen-year-old daughter, Jade, the couple seem to be made for one another.

But their idyllic domestic calm is soon shattered when Alex returns home one night to find that Jade and Natalie have narrowly escaped from a devastating house fire. Hospitalized and traumatized, Jade insists that she saw a man in their house on that fateful night, though Natalie resolutely disagrees.

In the wake of the fire, Natalie finally confides in Alex about a past that she has always kept hidden: eighteen years ago, she testified as a witness in a murder trial involving her reckless and defiant sister, Sadie, whose infatuation with a local gang leader, Kas, led her badly astray. Natalie was placed under witness protection and given a new identity; she has worked hard to build another life, but now it seems the past is catching up to her. And as Alex struggles to understand what really happened between the two sisters years ago, he is forced to recognize that his wife’s actions are now putting his family at risk—and that perhaps he is more deeply involved than he ever realized.

Story Locale: Brighton, UK

STRONG DEBUT: Rebecca’s first thriller, The House Swap, effortlessly connected with readers, selling 10,000 copies in its first 3 months and setting up this new book nicely.

A BLURBER FAVOURITE: Lee Child raved about The House Swap, as did bestselling authors Shari Lapena and Jane Corry, among others. We hope to garner more media and mainstream blogger attention for Rebecca’s second thriller.

FRESH PREMISE IN A CROWDED GENRE: Among the raft of domestic suspense novels about suspicion within relationships, and secrets between husbands and wives, Rebecca’s concepts are fresh and distinctive.

FABULOUS AUTHOR: Rebeccca is a bright new voice in the psychological/domestic thriller space, and we think she has the capacity to break out with writing that is stylish, smart and a cut above many in the genre.

FANTASTIC PARTNERS: We’re once again working with the dream team of Pamela Dorman Books (US) and Transworld (UK), our partners for Rebecca’s first book and Shari Lapena.

REBECCA FLEET was educated at Oxford and works in marketing. She lives in London. The House Swap was her debut; Knock, Knock is her second domestic thriller.

Praise for The Second Wife

“This tale of deceit, obsession, and betrayal should win Fleet new fans.” —Publishers Weekly

“Well handled and enjoyably twisty, [The Second Wife] is most impressive for its chilling insights into obsession and where it can lead.” —The Guardian

“Beautifully written and well-crafted, the characters of Natalie, Rachel, Sadie and Alex stayed with me long after I finished reading and I resented anything that stopped me from getting back to them. I read it in two days, though I would have read it in one if I could!” —Sandie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Other Woman

“Compelling and well plotted.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Enjoyably twisty.” —Observer (UK)
