First Look: The Trophy Child by Paula Daly

We’re thrilled to be able to reveal the cover of The Trophy Child, the latest compulsive domestic thriller from Paula Daly, out in January 2017.

A doting mother or a pushy parent?

Karen Bloom expects perfection. Her son, Ewan, has been something of a disappointment and she won’t be making the same mistake again with her beloved, talented child, Bronte.

Bronte’s every waking hour will be spent at music lessons and dance classes, doing extra schoolwork and whatever it takes to excel.

But as Karen pushes Bronte to the brink, the rest of the family crumbles. Karen’s husband, Noel, is losing himself in work, and his teenage daughter from his first marriage, Verity, is becoming ever more volatile. The family is dangerously near breaking point.

Karen would know when to stop . . . wouldn’t she?

Frankie Gray, Editorial Director at Transworld, says: “We’re thrilled to be publishing the fantastic The Trophy Child in January. With her trademark blend of wit and intrigue, Paula Daly once again gives us an almost impossibly gripping, suspenseful novel where she pushes characters to their very limits. And not just any characters, these are people like us, people you feel that you know personally. Alongside them we see the ordinary made extraordinary, as one mother’s desire for success pushes her family to the brink. I envy all the readers who have the joy of The Trophy Child still to come!”

Here’s the cover of this brilliant new thriller – what do you think?

Head over to Twitter now to be in with a chance of winning an early proof of The Trophy Child.
