The third in the Hidden Iceland series, starring DI Hulda Hermansdottir, The Mist was published by Michael Joseph last week and has already garnered some fantastic reviews:
"Nothing less than a landmark in modern crime fiction." The Times
"Jónasson weaves his suspenseful tales together with remorseless logic up to a climax more nightmarish than the buildup." Kirkus Reviews
Sophie thought she and Jonah were happy, bringing up their small daughter, until one summer's day, she discovers that Jonah is far from the man she thought he was. Sam - an attractive English teacher - seems to offer her some comfort, and new friendships are a support.
But is Sam really who he says he is? Where have her new friends appeared from? Is anyone telling the truth? As Jonah's lies threaten Sophie and her daughter, can anyone be trusted?
The paperback of this twisty page-turner will be published in September.
The award is organised by librarians, teachers and students and is aimed at celebrating diversity in young adult fiction.
