If you like emotional suspense and translated fiction, this competition is for you.

Penance is a tense and chilling story of four women haunted by a childhood trauma from the international bestselling author Kanae Minato. Read the blurb below:


When a group of young girls are approached by a stranger, they cannot know that the encounter will haunt them for the rest of their lives.

Hours later, Emily is dead. The surviving girls alone can identify the killer. But not one of them remembers his face…

Driven mad by grief, the victim’s mother demands the girls find the murderer or else atone for their crimes. If they do neither, she will have her revenge. She will make them pay. . .


If this sounds like your kind of book, enter our competition! We’re giving one lucky winner the chance to get their hands not only on Penance, but Kanae’s previous book Confessions AND the screen adaptations of both on DVD.

To enter, please fill out the form below. The competition will end at 11:59pm on the 14th April 2017.

T&Cs can be found here. Good luck!
