**SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2021 CWA GOLD DAGGER AWARD**   She& #8217 s a murderer.   Everyone knows she killed Stuart Rees & #8211 why else would his dead body be found in her shed? So now Tabitha is in prison, awaiting trial.   Coming back to the remote coastal village where she grew up was a mistake. She didn& #8217 t fit in then, and she doesn& #8217 t fit in now.   That day is such a blur, she can& #8217 t remember clearly what happened. There is something she is missing, something important& #8230 She only knows one thing. She is not capable of murder.   And the only one she can trust to help her out of this situation is herself. So she must fight. Against the odds.   For her life.    Beautifully written about prejudice, loneliness and fighting spirit, this new book by Nicci French is shocking, twisty and utterly compelling.   Praise for House of Correction: & #8216 A novel that blissfully plays with two genres: on the one hand an against-the-odds legal thriller à la John Grisham& #8230 and on the other a Miss Marple whodunnit set in a Devon village, where the amateur sleuth is herself the prime suspect and has to conduct her investigation from jail& #8217 Sunday Times & #8216 Nicci French husband-and-wife writing team responsible for some of the UK& #8217 s best psychological thrillers have created a gem of a protagonist in Tabitha, who sets out to investigate what happened to herself, from prison& #8230 House of Correction allows the readers to puzzle out what happened alongside Tabitha, while cheering her effort& #8217 Observer & #8216 First-class& #8217 Independent & #8216 The husband-and-wife team of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French& #8230 have taken the ingredients of the classic village mystery and transformed them into something up to date and gripping& #8217 Literary Review & #8216 Gritty and moving & #8211 the husband-and-wife team have scored another hit& #8217 Best & #8216 A twisty and shocking read& #8217 Bella & #8216 Engrossing& #8230 In this clever courtroom drama, Tabitha is on trial for the murder of a neighbour. The evidence against her is strong and due to the medication she takes, she has virtually no memory of what happened, but she& #8217 s sure she& #8217 s innocent and has to build a case to clear her name& #8217 Good Housekeeping & #8216 I wanted everything to stop so I could read this book, there was something that grabbed me from the opening& #8230 This is a clever, well-crafted novel with twists and turns right until the end& #8230 Definitely a favourite read of mine for 2020& #8217 Woman& #8217 s Way (Ireland) & #8216 Describing it as a suspenseful prison thriller, or riveting courtroom drama doesn& #8217 t do this meticulously written detective novel justice& #8230 As well as its finely drawn characters and clever storyline, this is a novel that provokes you into pondering the workings of the wider justice system, police methods and prison life& #8217 Bookanista & #8216 Great writing, razor-sharp plotting, and powerful characterisation. I was 100 pages in before I even drew breath, and I defy anyone to see the ending coming& #8217 Cara Hunter & #8216 Part ingenious locked-room mystery.
