Margie Orford

@ Sunday Times Books LIVE

UK Edition of Like Clockwork

Like Clockwork is coming out in the UK next March. The cover is already up on the Atlantic Books website:

Like Clockwork UKPublication of Like Clockwork announces the arrival of Margie Orford, a major new force in crime writing.

‘Margie Orford is a name you should commit to memory… Dr Clare Hart is set to become as popular as Patricia Cornwell’s forensic investigator Kay Scarpetta and Kathy Reich’s forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan.’ Oprah Magazine

When a beautiful young woman is found murdered on Cape Town’s Seapoint promenade, journalist and part-time police profiler Dr Clare Hart is drawn into the web of a brutal serial killer. As more bodies are discovered, Clare is forced to re-visit memories of the brutal rape of her twin sister and the gang ties that bind Cape Town’s crime rings. Is her investigation into human trafficking linked to the murders or is the killer just playing a sick game with her?

‘Gritty, fast paced and violently realistic, Orford has created a Cape Town underworld whose depths reach into the far recesses of human depravity.’
- Saturday Star

    well done Margie

    This cover looks fantastic, looks like the cover of an international best seller.

    Would be interesting to see what Jonathan Ball uses with the reprint next year

    they have some great tricks up their sleeve...The book was completely re-edited by Lynda Gilfillan who brought her very exacting literary touch to it. She made me seem much cleverer than I am, which was very nice of her. So it will be like a whole new book, I think.. exciting.
