HELEN GILTROW The Distance By a long way, this year’s coolest thriller debut. Charlotte Alton has put her old life behind her. The life where she bought and sold information, unearthing secrets buried too deep for anyone else to find, or fabricating new identities for people who need their histories erased. But now she has been offered one more job. To get a hit-man into an experimental new prison and take out someone who thought it was the perfect place to hide. It’s impossible. A suicide mission. And quite possibly a set-up. So why can’t she say no? Helen Giltrow’s writing has been shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association Debut Dagger Award and the Daily Telegraph Novel in a Year competition. The Distance is her first novel.
