Sophie Hannah

Sophie Hannah is an unstoppable force in psychological crime. One of her most prolific credits includes being commissioned by the estate of Agatha Christie to write the first Hercule Poirot novel since Christie's death, The Monogram Murders, which was released in September 2014.

Sophie’s new book is the chilling standalone novel, A Game for All the Family, which centres on a literary puzzle set to unlock the dark side of the mind.

Her critical acclaim is extraordinary - she is held in high regard by reviewers and fellow crime writers alike. She has many awards to her name including the Crime Thriller of the Year award at the 2013 Specsavers National Book Awards for her psychological chiller, The Carrier. Two other novels, The Point of Rescue and The Other Half Lives, have both been adapted for television on ITV.

Sophie's books have been published in thirty-four languages and she is also an award-winning short story writer and poet. Sophie's fifth collection of poetry, Pessimism for Beginners, was shortlisted for the TS Eliot Award, and in 2004 she won first prize in the Daphne du Maurier Festival Short Story Competition for her psychological suspense story, The Octopus Nest. Sophie's poetry is studied at GCSE, A-level and degree level across the UK.
