A twisty tale of obsession and rage…

UNITED STATES: your editions of So Close, release TODAY, March 28, in hardback, ebook and audio.

Have questions? Check out Sylvia’s Blacklist Blog where she dives into how she switched genres for Blacklist, and also explores the story and characters: “In Blacklist, I let my characters be utterly human, with terrible traits, selfish dreams, and reckless ambition. Women are so often celebrated for being nurturers, mediators, and caregivers. But we’re also extremely dangerous, and I think that’s worth acknowledging and celebrating, too.”

More questions? We have answers in the Blacklist FAQ.

Last week she posted her first Author Note, We Don’t Talk About So Close, which was announced exclusively via her newsletter — the one in which she shared the cover and release date for So Close.
