“It couldn’t be more timely. Or more imbued with passion.” – Val McDermid

Book by book Eva Dolan is crafting a reputation as one of the most deft, challenging crime writers in a golden age of psychological thrillers.

In her lastest This is How it Ends, Eva delves into the seedy underbelly of big contruction, gentrification and contemporary social cleansing. With insight and precision she weaves a masterful plot with deft observations of the lived experiences of the activists who dedicate themselves to challenging the status quo.

The building that anchors this story was once home to families, friends, children, couples, love, life. Now, almost every apartment is empty, the inhabitants forced out by the developers tearing down the old social housing to build luxury homes.

Only a few of the inhabitants have fought back against the attempts to evict them from their homes and their histories. And they have been joined by passionate student protester and would-be journalist, Ella, and seasoned activist Molly, who are leading a high-profile media campaign to protect those who refuse to leave. They share a mission, and a secret. The body of a man, hidden in one of the building’s elevator shafts.

Powerful, harsh and completely rivetting Eva Dolan’s produced a one-of-a-kind read in what seemed a completely oversaturated market. Still not sure? Join Eva in the bookshop – we’ll dim the lights and lift the curtain on this truly brilliant book and the talented writer behind it.
