“A splendid job...Those who appreciate intelligent writing and emotionally plausible characters will be rewarded.”Publishers Weekly

“Noort cranks up the tension with skill to produce a truly gripping nightmare.” Sunday Telegraph

Praise for Saskia Noort:

'A mystery writer of the heart as much as of the mind, a balance that marks her work with a flesh-and-blood humanity.'—Andrew Pyper, author of The Wildfire Season

“Affairs, deceit, manipulation, tax dodges and murder—-there’s nothing Noort shies away from stirring into the mix, nicely showing off the sinister side of the suburbs.”—Time Out

“While there are echoes of Desperate Housewives here, this is closer to Mary Higgins Clark and is a good bet for her fans.”-—Library Journal

Maria has money problems, two children from a failed marriage, and a depressive boyfriend. When she becomes pregnant, she decides not to keep the baby and then the letters start to arrive. Threatening letters, from pro-life activists she thinks at first, but then she begins to suspect others—even her own boyfriend. She flees to her sister’s house, redolent with memories of a childhood she does not want to revisit. As the death threats follow her to her hiding place, Maria begins to fear not only for her life but for her own sanity.

This is relentless suspense writing; it is a description of Maria’s hellish descent into a world of induced paranoia that ends with a narrow escape from a carefully planned murder.

Saskia Noort, born in 1967, is an acclaimed author of literary thrillers and international bestsellers. She has sold over a million copies of her first three novels and splits her time between the Netherlands and a Spanish island retreat.

About the Author:

Saskia Noort, 38, is a free-lance journalist and she writes regular features for, among others, the Dutch editions of Marie Claire and Playboy. Her first thriller, Back to the Coast, was published in 2003 and has sold over 150,000 copies in the Netherlands. The Dinner Club followed in 2004 and, with over 300,000 sold. Laura Vroomen is a well known translator from the Dutch and lives in London.

From Booklist:

Soul singer Maria chooses to abort an unplanned pregnancy rather than bring a third child into her already chaotic life. This single action ends up destroying everything in her life as an unknown and increasingly malevolent stalker harasses her for choosing an abortion. Fleeing her life and former boyfriend in Amsterdam, Maria returns to her family home on the desolate seaside to stay with her social-worker older sister, abandoning everything except her children in a desperate bid to escape. In this fast-paced and exciting thriller, Maria’s fear and terror are conveyed to the reader through short chapters detailing her increasingly desperate moves. Is Maria sane, or is she having psychotic delusions like her mother? Is she safe anywhere? A best-seller across Europe, Back to the Coast is a perfect vacation novel for those who’d rather read about someone being chased down a beach than go to the beach themselves. Suggest to fans of international crime fiction who liked Petra Hammesfahr’s The Sinner (2008) or Gianluca Morozzi’s Blackout (2009) for their atmospheric contemporary European settings and possibly unreliable narrators. --Jessica Moyer
