LAPENA’S STAR CONTINUES TO RISE: We have made Shari Lapena into a true bestselling repeat book-a-year author. With the publication of Someone We Know, Shari now has four G&M and NYT bestsellers under her belt in four years, and has sold globally more than 7 million copies across all titles.
GENUINE NAME-BRAND BESTSELLER: Shari’s stature and name recognition in the crime-writing community rises with each book, with readers looking forward to her book-every-summer schedule—and we have the engagement on socials (hers and ours) to prove it!
GREAT CONCEPT: We anticipate more of everything readers already love about Shari’s books—those great hooks, twisty plots and excellent crimes—but here she also pivots to a deliciously fickle family (think Knives Out!). The dynamics at play among the adult children and their spouses will have you looking over your own shoulder at Thanksgiving.
WELL-REVIEWED AUTHOR: The press loves Shari—both trade reviewers and mainstream media, and from around the world. And it doesn’t hurt that she’s a hometown talent. We’re lucky to call her one of our own.
GREAT PARTNERS: We publish Shari as part of a winning team that includes Viking (US) and Transworld (UK).
