The brand new psychological thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author

A beautiful French chateau
Jo Lawless is still grieving her husband when his oldest friends invite her to a weekend houseparty in France. She’s always felt like an outsider in the group but she decides to go, hoping their shared loss will bring them closer together.

A night that will end in murder
The cold light of morning reveals a horrifying discovery. And the killer isn’t finished. A storm is coming, and no one at this party is safe…

Reviews

‘[Storm] is about fascinatingly AWFUL rich people getting their comeuppance at the hands of a young woman called Storm, a GREAT character. Full of twists, turns and moving, realistic reveals” Marian Keyes, author of Again, Rachel

‘A lavishly entertaining thriller…that exceedingly rare thriller that’s both sophisticated and almost giddily fun’ A. J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

'A clever, twisty, and deliciously dark thriller set in the entitled and dangerously alluring world of the one per cent. STORM is a whirlwind of a tale showing how easily and devastatingly one person's life can tear through another's, and the lengths some will go to in order to avoid the consequences of their actions. I read it in one sitting’ Charlotte Philby, author of A Double Life

‘An absolute corker. I read it in two days straight because I couldn’t put it down’ Jane Fallon, author of Worst Idea Ever

‘Like its principal character, Storm is timely, powerful and seductive’ Christopher Brookmyre

‘A fast-paced, addictive tale’ Sunday Times

‘A superior morality tale that aims to skewer privilege… it is consistently entertaining and distinguished by characterisation more thoughtful than usual in the genre. Mudslinging in the rain’ The Times

'Stephanie Merritt’s Storm finds the always reliable novelist en pleine forme. An unexpected guest wreaks havoc during a gathering at a French château — as storms break over the heads of the residents’ Financial Times

‘Merritt writes well: Jo’s reflections on her marriage and relationships with the other members of the group are convincing’ Literary Review
