The twisty, enthralling new novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of Disclaimer.

'Poised to establish herself as a big name' Telegraph Look around you. Who holds the most power in the room? Is it the one who speaks loudest, who looks the part, who has the most money, who commands the most respect?

Or perhaps it's someone like Christine Butcher- a meek, overlooked figure, who silently bears witness as information is shared and secrets are whispered. Someone who quietly, maybe even unwittingly, gathers together knowledge of the people she's there to serve - the ones who don't notice her, the ones who consider themselves to be important.

There's a fine line between loyalty and betrayal. And when someone like Christine Butcher is pushed to their limit, she might just become the most dangerous person in the room . . .

Renee Knight worked as a documentary-maker for the BBC before turning to writing.

Her widely acclaimed debut novel, Disclaimer, was a Sunday Times No.1 bestseller. The Secretary is her second novel.


A cool, contemporary, whip-smart thriller. * Paula Hawkins, author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and INTO THE WATER * Woah, you are in for a treat with The Secretary! Dark and intriguing with utterly compelling characters. I genuinely couldn't put it down. * Laura Marshall, author of FRIEND REQUEST * Deceptively clever and so unsettling. I love the way she casually slips in a twist that makes you shake your head at how wrong you were! * Lesley Kara, author of THE RUMOUR * I started reading #SecretaryBook last night and couldn't put it down... Such a deliciously dark, hugely satisfying read. * Paul Burston, author of THE BLACK PATH * An engrossing study of twisted dynamics in a relationship where one person holds all the power. Fans of Notes on a Scandal will love it. * Tammy Cohen, author of THEY ALL FALL DOWN *
