Welcome to The Escape

Posted by Christopher at 7:21pm

My latest novel, Escape Room, will be published on the 3rd February 2022 and here’s a sneak preview of the blurb from the back of the book to tell you a little more about the story.

Escape Room is a story filled with thrills and adventure. There are puzzles to solve and mysteries to unlock. It's a story about finding the Answer and saving the world.

I'm looking forward to sharing more about the story in the run-up to publication day, but some early proof copies of Escape Room have already escaped into the world and it's been wonderful to see the following responses to the book from authors I admire: 

"A mind-twisting, page-racing stormer of a read! Loved it." Kieran Larwood, author of the Five Realms series

"Reads like a Doctor Who adventure." A. F. Harrold, author of The Imaginary

"Amazingly inventive, punchy and profound. Unputdownable!" Darren Simpson, author of The Memory Thieves

"Escape Room is a super-smart, super-fast read. High pace, high stakes and rip-roaring! MARVELLOUS!" Julie Pike, author of The Last Spell Breather

"Twisty and mysterious." Alastair Chisholm, author of Orion Lost and ADAM-2

"A spine-tingling brain-teaser that will keep you guessing to the very last page. I loved it." Patience Agbabi, author of The Infinite

"A tense, terrifying tale with a powerful punch." Finbar Hawkins, author of Witch

"A fast-paced, adrenaline rush to save the world and with a twist I didn't see coming!" Gill Lewis, author of Sky Hawk

Now you might not know, but pre-ordering a book helps an author in so many ways as this great article from the Irish Times explains. So if you're thinking of buying a copy of Escape Room, I'd be incredibly grateful if you could pre-order it from your local bookshop or one of the following booksellers:







And I really hope you enjoy it.
