Saving Sophie

‘Immediately after finishing it, I wanted this book in as many readers’ hands as possible,’ says Rachel, one of Avon’s fab Commissioning Editor with a renowned eye for a best-seller. ‘This is psychological crime at its best, with a jaw-dropping twist that will have readers buzzing long after putting it down.’

Interest piqued? Fingers poised on that buy button…

The book is Saving Sophie by Sam Carrington. It’s one of those stories that is so good, so clever, so twisty and SO relatable that we bought it forward for immediate publication because we couldn’t wait for you to read it.

In a nutshell: seventeen-year-old Sophie is brought home drunk by the police. She has zero memory of the night. Her friend doesn’t return home. Her body is found.

It’s good. Like really good. And it’s made doubly good by the fact Sam Carrington worked in the NHS and the prison service so her voice is intensely authentic. But don’t just take our word for it. Louise Jensen, author of bestselling The Sister, said, ‘I devoured this story in one sitting’

And Amazon readers have said:

‘SAVING SOPHIE is an outstanding debut thriller’

‘A clear 5* for SAVING SOPHIE, and I highly recommend you give it a read!

‘Dramatic, and heart pumping I fell headlong into the story’

‘One of the best psychological books I have read!’
