Synopsis

Soon to be a major series for Amazon Prime . . .

'Red Queen is one of the most extravagantly entertaining novels I’ve ever read. It's an electrifying serial-killer thriller, fiendishly clever puzzle mystery, and sensitive portrait of a fascinating young woman. I loved every word.' - A.J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window


You've never met anyone like her . . .

Antonia Scott is special. Very special. She is not a policewoman or a lawyer. She has never wielded a weapon or carried a badge, and yet, she has solved dozens of crimes.

But it's been awhile since Antonia left her attic in Madrid. The things she has lost are much more important to her than the things awaiting her outside.

She also doesn't receive visitors. That's why she really, really doesn't like it when she hears unknown footsteps coming up the stairs.

Whoever it is, Antonia is sure that they are coming to look for her.

And she likes that even less.

Juan Gómez-Jurado's internationally bestselling thriller series has sold more than two million copies to date in Spain alone. Translated by Nick Caistor.

Red Queen is one of the most extravagantly entertaining novels I’ve ever read. Sprinting from spectacular surprise to even-more-spectacular surprise; whirling from one crisply textured character to the next . . . it's an electrifying serial-killer thriller, a fiendishly clever puzzle mystery, and a sensitive portrait of a fascinating young woman. Red Queen tops even The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as a thinking reader’s thriller, and Antonia Scott is like a more sympathetic Lisbeth Salander. I loved every word.
Fast paced, memorable characters and a cinematic story that draws you in hook, line and sinker. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series.
A labyrinth of mystery, crisply plotted and paced, way ahead of the pack.
