Hurting Distance: A Novel

About the eBook

A psychological thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author: “No one writes twisted, suspenseful novels quite like Sophie Hannah” (Liane Moriarty).
Naomi Jenkins, a successful professional woman prone to panic attacks, has a terrible secret she’s been keeping for three years. Also secret is Naomi’s current relationship with Robert Haworth, who is married, albeit unhappily.
When Robert doesn’t show up for one of their trysts, Naomi fears for him—but the police don’t take it seriously, since Robert’s wife claims he isn’t missing. Naomi is desperate, and comes up with a plan: If she convinces the police that Robert is a danger to others, they will have to track him down. Using details from her own troubled past, she spins a story for them—but twists and turns lie ahead that she never expected.
“Naomi’s concern for her married lover’s well-being grows when his wife insists he is fine, just away. Naomi uses the story of a rape from her past to get the police to sit up and take notice. What makes this novel work so well is that more than one character has a bit of a screw loose—even the detectives on the case are grappling with some crippling personal issues—and it takes the full ride of the novel to find out who is playing whom.” —Time Out
