I am so THRILLED to share this cover reveal with you today! 

Death of a Bookseller 


Alice Slater 

Published by Hodder & Stoughton 

Published Thursday 27th April 2023. hardback, ebook, audio, priced £14.99




Meet Laura and Roach: two young woman thrown together as booksellers in a Walthamstow chain bookshop. 

Roach is drawn to the darkness: antisocial and addicted to true crime podcasts, she loves the sanctuary of the bookshop but is less fond of the customers. Laura, conversely, loves to talk about books with customers and is passionate about her favourite authors, though behind her cheery façade fears her life is falling apart.

When Roach discovers a crime in Laura's past a dangerous obsession takes hold, leading the pair down the darkest of paths…

Dark, creepy, thrilling and addictive, Death of a Bookseller is a totally new kind of book, seamlessly transcending genres and exploring the many complexities of female friendship and rivalry. 

With shades of Ottessa Moshfegh, this is going to be an unmissable publication next spring, and your favourite authors are already obsessed:

'Tense, addictive and sticky underfoot' JULIA ARMFIELD

'Your new obsession' ERIN KELLY

'Impossible to put down' ELIZA CLARK

'A dark masterpiece. It will work its way under your skin like a splinter and stay there' CATRIONA WARD

'Utterly unforgettable' CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD

'Engrossing, atmospheric and deliciously dark. Add this to your list' WILL DEAN

Alice Slater spent six years working as a bookseller with Waterstones.
