Touch by Claire North (March 2015)

The electrifying new thriller from the author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

He tried to take my life.  Instead I took his.

It was a long time ago.  I remember it was dark, and I didn't see my killer until it was too late.  As I died, my hand touched his.  That's when the first switch took place.

Suddenly, I was looking through the eyes of my killer, and I watching myself die.

Now switching is easy.  I can jump from body to body, have any life, be anyone.

Some people touch lives.  Others take them.  I do both.

'One of the cleverest, most compelling books I've read in a long time.  Intoxicating, ingenious and intricate... Claire North is one hell of a writer'  C.L. Taylor, author of The Accident

'The high stakes and breakneck pace of the plot will draw readers in, and the meditations on what it means to be human and to be loved will linger long after the last shot is fired'  Kirkus

'I was totally and utterly gripped, it's just extraordinary.  Absolutely mesmerising'  Clare MacKintosh, author of I Let You Go
