Book Synopsis

A quick-witted, genre-bending, debut thriller about a secret organization keeping the world safe from supernatural threats, one staff meeting at a time.

“The body you are wearing used to be mine.” So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no memory of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind. She soon learns that she is a Rook, a high-level operative in a secret agency that battles supernatural forces. But there is a mole inside the organization and this person wants her dead.

Battling to save herself, Myfanwy will encounter a person with four bodies, a woman who can enter her dreams, children transformed into deadly fighters, and an unimaginably vast conspiracy. Suspenseful, hilarious, and richly inventive, The Rook is a rip-roaring debut.
