Paula Hawkins’ new thriller The Blue Hour to be published in October 2024

The Blue Hour, a new unmissable thriller by globally best-selling writer Paula Hawkins, will be published by Transworld in the UK and by Mariner in the US.

The thriller begins with the discovery that an exhibited sculpture, created by an infamous artist whose notoriously unfaithful husband disappeared after visiting her twenty years ago, contains human remains. It is a discovery that will intimately connect three people and unveil a web of secrets and lies. The Blue Hour recalls the elegant psychological intrigue of Shirley Jackson and Patricia Highsmith and cements Hawkins’s place among the very best of our most nuanced, powerful and stylish storytellers.

International rights have also been sold by DHA in Canada (Doubleday), France (Sonatine), Spain (Planeta), Germany (dtv), Catalan (Columna), Portugal (PRH), Norway (Cappelen Damm), Finland (Otava), The Netherlands (HarperCollins Holland), and Hungary (Magnolia), with rights currently under offer in Italy, Romania, Slovakia, and Brazil.

The Blue Hour is now available for pre-order, and will be publishing internationally on 8th October 2024.
