Bookouture sign bestselling author Liz Lawler

We are absolutely thrilled to share the news that Bookouture has acquired two new psychological thrillers from bestselling author Liz Lawler. Commissioning Editor Cara Chimirri acquired World English rights, including audio, from Rory Scarfe at The Blair Partnership.

Don’t Wake Up (twenty7), Liz’s chilling, pacey and completely addictive debut, published in 2017 and has now sold over 300,000 copies. This was followed by I’ll Find You (Zaffre) in 2019.

Liz’s third novel will publish in November 2020 and is a heart-stopping, dark and twisted story of what really goes on in a marriage behind closed doors. We meet Tess, who has been swept off her feet by Daniel in a whirlwind romance. But when Daniel makes a terrible mistake and lets Tess take the fall for it, she suddenly doesn’t recognise the man she married. She is now caught in a deadly game she didn’t realise she was playing. Liz’s fourth book will follow in May 2021.

Cara Chimirri said,

‘I am beyond excited to be working with Liz on her next two phenomenal psychological thrillers. Liz truly is a master of the genre. She knows exactly what readers want and just how to keep them guessing! I know that readers will be held totally in thrall by these next two books and can’t wait to get these stories into the hands of thriller fans everywhere.’
