Helen Fitzgerald could not have her finger more on the pulse of our 21st century world than she does in her latest thriller Viral! Stepping nimbly into the shoes of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins, Fitzgerald delivers a spine-tingling book about mothers, daughters and a viral sex tape.

Relayed in blistering, unflinching detail, Viral is the utterly compelling story of a mother’s quest for truth and vengeance following the online shaming of her daughter. From it’s shocking opening line to its final sentence Viral offers readers a darkly funny, uncompromising read that’ll have readers on the edge of their seats!

Su, adopted as a baby from Korea by a Glaswegian judge, is used to flying high. Before starting Medical School in Edinburgh, she agrees to accompany her tear-away younger sister on a girls holiday to Magaluf. Waking up after a heavy night’s drinking, Su turns on her phone to discover a shocking video of herself circulating online – she flees, mortified and ashamed. Watching the view count go up, her mother launches a desperate bid to find her missing daughter and the man responsible for it all…

Join us for a unique encounter with the award-winning Fitzgerald as she delves into the moral dilemmas and complex characters that are set to make Viral the break out thriller 2016!
