Titan lands Christopher Fowler’s Hot Water thriller

Friday 3rd September 2021

Titan Books has acquired UK & Commonwealth rights excluding Canada a new thriller from Christopher Fowler entitled HOT WATER. The book will be published on 1 March 2022.

The publisher said: “In HOT WATER Fowler turns his sharp eye away from arcane London to the modern-day French Rivera, where a woman waits beside the pool for her married lover. But by the time he arrives late with his family unexpectedly in tow she is gone. Now the villa’s full of guests with secrets to keep, and only one person thinks she can tell the truth from the lies: Hannah, the maid. She is under strict instructions never to speak directly to the guests, but that doesn’t stop her from hearing everything they say. Hot Water is a smart, contemporary mystery that will keep readers guessing until the devastating ending.”

Editor Cat Camacho said: “I am absolutely delighted to have someone as high-calibre as Chris joining the list. HOT WATER still keeps me awake at night after several readings, and I can’t wait to see it unleashed on the world.”
