The most original crime novel youll read this year Clare Mackintosh

In the UK, someone is reported missing every 90 seconds.
Just gone. Vanished. In the blink of an eye.

DCS Kat Frank knows all about loss. A widowed single mother, Kat is a cop who trusts her instincts. Picked to lead a pilot programme that has her paired with AIDE (Artificially Intelligent Detective Entity) Lock, Kats instincts come up against Locks logic. But when the two missing persons cold cases they are reviewing suddenly become active, Lock is the only one who can help Kat when the case gets personal.

AI versus human experience.
Logic versus instinct.
With lives on the line can the pair work together before someone else becomes another statistic?

In the Blink of an Eye is a dazzling debut from an exciting new voice and asks us what we think it means to be human.

Just brilliant! Lisa Jewell

';I loved it' AngelaScanlon, as featured on BBC 2's Between the Covers

';One of the most original crime fiction partnerships I have ever read. In The Blink of An Eye explores the potential future of technology with an in-depth, unforgettable look at grief and humanity, and how surprisingly, one can aide the other. A breathtaking debut that will have you eagerly awaiting the next instalment in what is set to be a beloved series' Jack Jordan

Fresh, innovative and very, very clever. Flawlessly paced, plotted and researched, its laugh out loud, heart-achingly sad and doesnt have a dull moment. I raced through it. Simply sensational M. W. Craven

';I started reading this morning and ten hours later I've finished it! It's so, SO good really properly compelling, impossible to put down I was desperate for the solution to the mystery but so human and moving and massively thought-provoking on what makes us human' Laura Marshall

The kind of fresh and fearless debut I just adore. Wildly original, heartfelt, funny, and properly thrilling. Take a bow, Jo Callaghan Chris Whitaker
