Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling suspense author Clare Mackintosh, who will discuss her new "explosively addictive thriller," Hostage, on our Facebook Live Page at 1pm CT on June 22. Mackintosh will be in conversation with author of The Other Woman (a Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club pick) Sandie Jones. This is an exclusive event that requires purchase of a SIGNED copy of Hostage from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores! About Hostage From New York Times bestselling author Clare Mackintosh comes a claustrophobic thriller set over 20 hours on-board the inaugural nonstop flight from London to Sydney. Mina is trying to focus on her job as a flight attendant, not the problems with her five-year-old daughter back home, or the fissures in her marriage. But the plane has barely taken off when Mina receives a chilling note from an anonymous passenger, someone intent on ensuring the plane never reaches its destination: The following instructions will save your daughter's life... Someone needs Mina's assistance and knows exactly how to make her comply. When one passenger is killed and then another, Mina knows she must act. But which lives does she save: Her passengers...or her own daughter and husband who are in grave distress back at home? It's twenty hours to landing. A lot can happen in twenty hours. For fans of the locked-room mystery of One By One and the heart-stopping tension The Last Flight, Hostage is an explosively addictive thriller about one flight attendant and the agonizing decision that will change her life--and the lives of everyone on-board--forever. Reading Hostage "feels like a blockbuster movie." --Lisa Jewell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone "Surprising twists propel the story to an unexpected finale. Mackintosh has raised her game with this one." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED review About Our Speakers Clare Mackintosh is the New York Times and #1 international bestselling author
