Crime & Thriller Book of the Year (Specsavers National Book Awards) Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018. _______ SNAP DECISIONS CAN BE DANGEROUS . . . On a stifling summer's day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack's in charge, she'd said. I won't be long. But she doesn't come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever. Three years later, Jack is still in charge - of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they're alone in the house, and - quite suddenly - of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother. . . _______ 'It gives you chills, it makes you think and it touches your heart. I loved it!' SARAH PINBOROUGH, No.1 bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes 'The best crime novel I've read in a very long time.' VAL MCDERMID 'Original, pacy and thoroughly entertaining . . . a cracking read.' CLARE MACKINTOSH, bestselling author of I Let You Go 'No one writes crime novels like Belinda Bauer, with a rare blend of darkness, humour and heart. She's a crime writing genius.' C. L.

Sunday Times Crime Club 'Edgy, original and beautifully written' Sunday Mirror 'Belinda Bauer's plots are never anything less than original and unsettling, and Snap is no exception.' Sunday Times 'Spine-chilling, tension-packed gripper.' Woman and Home 'The opening of Snap is one of the most vividly unnerving I have read . . . razor-sharp observation.' Guardian 'Belinda Bauer's fiction teems with life . . . Kate Atkinson used to be the undisputed master of this sort of mixture of the serious, the exciting and the anarchic, but Bauer is now firmly in her class.' Daily Telegraph
