CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AUTHOR AND BELOVED BY FANS: JANE STEELE and GODS OF GOTHAM were both nominated for Edgar awards. All of Faye’s books have garnered adoring and enthusiastic reviews, earning coverage from the New York Times Book Review and USA Today to Cosmopolitan, and PopSugar and everywhere in between. R.L. Stein, Gillian Flynn, Caleb Carr, Lee Child and Sue Grafton have all lavished Faye’s work with praise and adoration, and we expect praise from big names like these for Faye’s new novel.
STRONG BOOKSELLER SUPPORT: There has been very strong support (especially among Indies) for Faye’s books, particularly for JANE STEELE.
ANOTHER STRONG, GUTSY FEMALE HEROINE & SUPPORTING CAST
UPWARD SALES TREND: JANE STEELE has sold more than twice as many copies as THE FATAL FLAME, Faye’s previous book. We expect this trend to continue with full force when THE PARAGON HOTEL hits shelves.
A PUTNAM REPEATER: In addition to JANE STEELE, we have Faye’s three backlist titles in the Gotham series. Faye has been devoted and reliable in delivering high quality books, and we’re committed to building her brand as an important young voice in the historical thriller canon.
SHARP SETTING AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL, LIKE IN GODS OF GOTHAM: The book takes place in both Portland and New York City, where Faye lived for 12 and 13 years, respectively, so readers can count on her ability to create rich atmosphere and her usual thirst for historical accuracy.
RELEVANT SUBJECT MATTER: This book is especially pertinent in today’s world—it centers on the issue of racism in America, which is still all-too-real today, despite this book being set in the 1920s.
“Utterly winning…Faye writes a good puzzle…[and she’s] a person meant to write, who thinks and jokes and understands by writing. It’s a rare gift..”—New York Times Book Review
“With complex, believable characters and an intricate plot, this is a sprightly, enjoyable read.”—People
“Faye once again vividly illuminates history with her fiction….remarkably fluid fiction, framed as a love letter and based in fact.”—Booklist (starred review)
