We are delighted to announce that Ruth Heald is joining Bookouture.
Commissioning Editor Christina Demosthenous acquired World all Language, Audio, Film and TV rights for two standalone psychological thrillers.
The Mother’s Mistake is an eerie, twisty and atmospheric psychological thriller about a mother’s worst nightmare. When Claire Hughes and her young family move to the countryside in the hope of a fresh start, it seems the perfect life – and the perfect family – are just within reach. But it isn’t long before Claire’s past catches up with her … and her daughter’s life is in danger.
The Mother’s Mistake will publish in June 2019, followed by a second novel in October 2019.

I’m overjoyed to be welcoming Ruth to the Bookouture family. The Mother’s Mistake is a pitch-perfect psychological thriller, oozing with atmosphere, bursting with twists and chilling to the bone. It’s a razor-sharp exploration of every mother’s instinctive fear, that will have you questioning motherhood, family and the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive. It’s an absolute corker!
