Autumn Travel Reads – brought to you by the KR team

Category: News

Hello there,

So, it’s officially got to that time of year again when we wake up for work and it’s dark, and then we get home from work, and guess what…it’s dark.

So, as there will be many of you out there jetting off for some Autumn sun, or maybe you’re going off for a nice traveling session (I’ve recently spoken to many a soon-to-be intrepid explorer – seems the travel bugs come around again), or even if, like me, you’re going to power through the winter months with layers of clothes and mugs of hot chocolate, then fear not I’ve got a plan that means we can all journey round the world together.

Follow this link to our world map of travel Killer Reads. Read the extracts and journey to cities you know and love,  or get lost in towns you’ve never even heard of. If you are off on your travels this autumn to any of these locations (or any other destinations from your favorite thrillers) then please feel free to send us images from locations mentioned in those thriller books and films to killerreads@harpercollins.co.uk or tag Killer Reads in the photo on facebook so the team can journey all over the world this Autumn as well…

PANTHEON has landed…

Category: Author Post

 This week saw the launch party for PANTHEON, the explosive new World War Two thriller by No. 1 bestseller Sam Bourne (the pseudonym of award-winning journalist and presenter of Radio 4’s The Long View, Jonathan Freedland).

It’s a page-turning, thoroughly-researched thrill-ride that is getting great buzz at the moment. Check out our dedicated PANTHEON mini-site to find out more and get a feel for the book through the fantastic trailer. Don’t take our word for it, though, see what the ’papers are saying:

 ‘Bourne has proved he can rub shoulders with the likes of John le Carré and Robert Harris’ (Mirror)

Pantheon is a propulsive, satisfying novel which burns with moral indignation, earning Bourne his place at the thriller-writers’ high table’ (Guardian)

‘A shoot-from-the-hip chase thriller in the Hitchcock tradition’ (Independent)

‘His readers will not be disappointed by Pantheon’ (Observer)

 All the best,

The Killer Reads Team
