Jessica Moor studied English at Cambridge before completing a Creative Writing MA at Manchester University. Prior to this she spent a year working in the violence against women and girls sector and this experience inspired her first novel, Keeper.
Keeper is extraordinary. Humane, compelling, and absolutely furious in the best possible way. I read the last chapters with my hand clapped over my mouth -- Flynn Berry, author of Under the Harrow Disturbing, gripping and illuminating - a page-turner that shines a light into a dark corner of our world -- Helen Lewis, journalist Sharp, incisive writing, and frighteningly believable characters. And what a twist . . . A deeply affecting and important addition to the thriller genre, Keeper explores the escalating horrors of domestic abuse with rare insight and skill. Jessica Moor is destined to become a serious voice on the crime scene -- Eva Dolan, author of This Is How It Ends Made me rage and weep and understand a little better. A powerful book telling stories that need to be heard -- Rosamund Lupton, author of 'Sister' A timely and thought provoking novel that explores issues of power and control with a sensitive and deft touch Pacy, absorbing and electric in its detail, Keeper is compassionately, furiously true. Men should read this book, and I'd be shocked to meet a woman who doesn't find some part of herself here Intense and compassionate . . . it made me furious and sad, but it also made me feel seen Extraordinary and compelling Reading Keeper is a visceral experience ... cleverly reminding us that for some women simply existing in a man's world is more dangerous than anything else Keeper is wickedly paced and utterly chilling, making space for the interior lives of its victims and their gradually shrinking worlds, all the while exposing the failures of the systems that are supposed to protect them. As compulsive as it is heartbreaking -- Rosie Price, author of 'What Red Was' Tense, beautiful and lyrical. Everyone should read this book -- Sara Collins, author of 'The Confessions of Frannie Langton' Jess Moor is a new young writer I believe in. She has plenty to say that's political and necessary. And she can tell a story Jess Moor's debut novel made me want to shout out in anger
