The Girl in the Park is a dark and gripping psychological thriller from debut author Anna Lester.

I'm not a bad person, but maybe I did a bad thing . . .

Life is good for Anna Wright. She's a successful media executive working for one of the UK's largest TV corporations. She's got a great boyfriend, some close friends and a lovely home. She adores her dog, Wispa, and she loves to run to help her de-stress.

But Anna's perfect life starts to crumble from the moment when, out jogging on the Heath one day, she meets a handsome stranger. She takes a route into unfamiliar territory, and then she has to face the consequences.

There's a dark, growing creepiness as the atmosphere becomes unsettled and, as Anna's professional life becomes increasingly pressured and poisonous, her obsession with the intriguing stranger intensifies.

Originally published as Rebound by Aga Lesiewicz.

In the media

What a delight, an original, fresh new voice. I simply could not put this book down . . . A taut, claustrophobic, psychological thriller . . . The plot keeps the reader engaged as it twists and surprises. A great read and a high bar to set for the next novel
SHOTS Magazine
A smart, sexy first novel . . . it races along with great verve and introduces an interesting new voice

Claustrophobic and tightly wound . . . an edge-of-your-seat read
