Description

From 'the woman who may be Britain's finest living crime novelist' (Daily Telegraph), Conviction stars a strong female protagonist who is obsessed by true crime podcasts and decides, one day, to investigate one of the unsolved crimes herself.

The morning starts as any other for Anna McDonald. But the moment she opens the front door to her best friend, everything changes. Anna turns to see her husband standing at the top of the stairs, suitcase in hand. They're leaving, together. And they're taking Anna's two daughters with them.

With her safe, predictable world suddenly shattered, Anna tries to drown out the pain of their deceit by listening to a true crime podcast. There's a sunken yacht, a multiple murder and a hint of power and corruption. But when Anna hears the name of one of the victims, she realises that this is a murder she can't ignore. Her past, so carefully hidden until now, will no longer stay silent.

To escape the trauma of her loss, Anna throws herself into investigating the case in the podcast. Little does she know that her past and present lives are about to collide, and throw everything she has worked so hard to achieve into freefall.

Conviction is the compelling and unique new thriller from multiple award-winner and author of THE LONG DROP, Denise Mina.

Review quote

A wonderfully atmospheric, unsettling read. -- Louise Rhind-Tutt * i * It is clear from the very start of Denise Mina's Conviction quite how much fun she - and her readers - are about to have... Mina is such a classy writer and Anna is a darkly brilliant creation * Observer * Not a single word is wasted in this beautifully written novel. Unsettling, evocative and staggeringly good, it is possibly Mina's finest achievement * Daily Express * This highly original, ballsy thriller is like nothing you have read - or Denise Mina has written - before -- Mark Sanderson * The Times, *Books of the Year* * Denise Mina is the cream of the crop, an author who pushes the crime novel in new and exciting directions
