One day I will publish the novel I wrote two years ago and that has been sitting in my bottom drawer ever since. One day I will give away free copies to readers and bask in praise or hide from trolls. But until that day comes, I’ll just have to settle for giving away another writer’s work instead!
I’ve got a copy of the best-selling debut thriller ‘Sorry’ by the German author Zoran Drvenkar for one of my readers. If you want it, it’s yours – just leave me a comment below, telling me what’s the best thriller you’ve ever read.
But first, back to ‘Sorry’. Here’s the plot: a group of four friends in Berlin team up to open an agency that will apologise on your behalf. They take on corporate commissions and, under the leadership of Kris, they find themselves earning more money than they could have dreamed. But inevitably things turn very dark and very nasty – this is a thriller, after all.
When Wolf, Kris’ younger brother, arrives at an appointment on the top floor of an apartment block, he finds a woman hanging on the wall, one nail through her crossed wrists, another through her forehead. At her feet is a paper bag containing a threat that means Wolf cannot just walk away; their job is to apologise to this dead woman, and then to clean up the murderer’s mess.
I haven’t had time to read the book yet, but reviews are encouraging.
‘Dark crime’ reviewer ReaderDad wrote: “’Sorry ‘is a cleverly-plotted piece of intrigue. Drvenkar is a writer who is sure of what he’s doing, and proves it by constantly surprising even this most jaded reader of crime fiction. It’s a dark and violent novel that, because of some elements, will not appeal to everyone; it should, however, find many fans outside the crime genre: there are times when Sorry teeters on the edge of horror.”
And the blurb on the press release shares praise from some prominent media.
“As dark a novel as I have read in years … for those with quick minds and strong stomachs, Sorry is an impressive debut..” THE TIMES
“A cleverly plotted switchback read …” THE GUARDIAN
“Stunning…Sorry thrills, and it thrills immaculately” THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
