SALON EXCLUSIVE: Amanda Craig reads from ‘The Golden Rule’

We’re delighted to share Amanda Craig’s spine tingling new novel with you! When Hannah’s invited by Jinni into the First Class carriage of the London to Penzance train, she unwittingly walks

into a spider’s web. Hannah’s husband has left her for Eve, rich and childless. Jinni is equally angry and bitter, and in the course of

their journey the two women agree to murder each other’s husbands. After all, they’re strangers on a train – who could possibly connect them?

But when Hannah goes to Jinni’s husband’s home, she finds Stan, a huge, hairy, ugly drunk who claims Jinni is a very different person to the one Hannah thought she was.

Who’s telling the truth – and who is the real victim?

The Golden Rule is published by Little, Brown and available in all good bookshops.

‘[Amanda Craig is] such a skilful storyteller who vividly dramatises our lives with wit, wisdom and compassion.’ – Bernardine Evaristo
