First Look: Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips
We’re delighted to reveal the cover of Fierce Kingdom, the incredible new thriller by Gin Phillips, which hits the shelves on 15th June.
Lincoln is a good boy. At the age of four, he is curious, clever and well behaved. He does as his mum says and knows what the rules are.
‘The rules are different today. The rules are that we hide and do not let the man with the gun find us.’
When an ordinary day at the zoo turns into a nightmare, Joan finds herself trapped with her beloved son. She must summon all her strength, find unexpected courage and protect Lincoln at all costs – even if it means crossing the line between right and wrong; between humanity and animal instinct.
It’s a line none of us would ever normally dream of crossing. But sometimes the rules are different.
Frankie Gray, Publishing Director at Transworld, says: ‘We can’t wait to publish Fierce Kingdom in June, and to share with readers the heart-racing, page-turning experience that has captivated all that have read so far. This is a thriller with an added edge, as emotionally rich as it is pulse-pounding. Like the raft of bestselling thrillers that have asked us what we would do in an almost-unimaginable situation, Fierce Kingdom takes us to the heart of one mother’s plight and makes it universal. It shows us the hope in the darkest of situations and the unbreakable bond between a mother and son, but it is also a celebration of life, of the closest relationships we cherish and the ferocity with which we will protect them. Marrying the pace of the very best thrillers with the emotional intensity of Room and We Need To Talk About Kevin, this is a book like no other.’
Here’s the cover for this unmissable new thriller – what do you think?
