Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Years ago someone lit a match...

Laura has spent most of her life being judged. She's seen as hot-tempered, troubled, a loner. Some even call her dangerous.

Miriam knows that just because Laura is witnessed leaving the scene of a horrific murder with blood on her clothes doesn't mean Laura is a killer. Bitter experience has taught her how easy it is to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Carla is reeling from the brutal murder of her nephew. She trusts no one and no thing: good people are capable of terrible deeds. But how far will she go to find peace?

Innocent or guilty, everyone is carrying damage. Some are damaged enough to kill.

Look what you started.

Review Quote*

"I love Paula Hawkins, and this is why―A Slow Fire Burning twists and turns like a great thriller should, but it's also deep, intelligent and intensely human . . . the characters are just like people you know . . . or maybe even just like you yourself. Hawkins is proving herself a worthy 21st century heir to Barbara Vine and Patricia Highsmith." -Lee Child

"Readers will witness courage and ingenuity where it is least expected, satisfying revenge where none was thought possible, and salvation that is painfully long overdue. Lee Child calls Hawkins an 'intensely human' writer, and this book puts her on a par with the supreme Ruth Rendell. Packed with OMG moments, this novel may be slow burning, but it's a scorcher nonetheless." -Booklist (starred review) 

"Four years after her last novel, Paula Hawkins is back with a riveting new mystery. . . . Filled with unpredictable twists and turns, this compulsively readable thriller will keep you guessing until the final page." -Book Riot
