"twisty thriller is the read of the summer"

Just as we thought we’d read every iteration of domestic noir, along comes the first example of “snowflake noir”. Precious You, a twisty commercial thriller by former journalist Helen Monks Takhar depicts the savage rivalry between two women at work: a successful middle-aged boss and her ambitious millennial intern. The manuscript was fought over by five literary agents before being sold in a pre-emptive two-book deal to HarperCollins for a “life-changing, significant six-figure sum”, with TV rights optioned. It looks set to be one of this summer’s biggest beach reads.
