Product Information

'It's such a thrill to read a book as deliciously dark and richly evocative as Tideline. From the first page to its shocking finale it draws you into its world and won't let go. A wonderful debut... I took Tideline on my travels, thinking it would last me a couple of weeks. Two days later I'd finished it, having stayed up all night, and was telling everyone I met they had got to read it. Brilliantly written and totally gripping. I loved it' - S J Watson, author of BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP 'TIDELINE is very clever and very chilling, and the surprises keep on coming until the very end... It is incredible that such a gripping thriller can also be so compassionate in its dealings with its characters' - Julia Crouch, author of CUCKOO 'A gripping account of a woman on the edge, who commits appalling crimes and offers them up in a tone of quietly rational domesticity' - NJ Cooper

After several years in London, Penny Hancock now lives in Cambridge with her husband and three children. She is a part-time primary school teacher at a speech and language school and has travelled extensively as a language teacher. This is her first novel.
