One of the Good Guys


The scorching psychological thriller everyone is talking about

If most men say they’re one of the good guys, then why are so many women afraid to walk alone at night?'Groundbreaking. Hall’s take on a very contemporary subject is challenging, revelatory and controversial' – Sunday Times'Razor-sharp, spine-tinglingly convincing and unputdownable.' - Lisa Jewell, author of None of This is True'One of the most daring and intriguing writers working today' – Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl'I devoured this book' – Lisa Taddeo, author of Three Women'Scorching, smart and soaked in feminist rage' – Ellery Lloyd, author of The Club'A dark, dazzling shock to the system' – Chris Whitaker, author of We Begin at the EndCole is the perfect husband: a romantic, supportive of his wife, Mel’s career, keen to be a hands-on dad, not a big drinker. A good guy.

So when Mel leaves him, he's floored. She was lucky to be with a man like him. Craving solitude, he accepts a job on the coast and quickly settles into his new life where he meets reclusive artist Lennie.

Lennie has made the same move for similar reasons. She is living in a crumbling cottage on the edge of a nearby cliff. It’s an undeniably scary location, but sometimes you have to face your fears to get past them.

As their relationship develops, two young women go missing while on a walk protesting gendered violence, right by where Cole and Lennie live. Finding themselves at the heart of a police investigation and media frenzy, it soon becomes clear that they don’t know each other very well at all. This is what happens when women have had enough.
