SWEET HEART audio.jpg

Déjà vu or something much more sinister? That is the question Charley and her husband ask themselves when disturbing memories emerge at an old mill house in this spine-tingling tale by Number 1 bestseller Peter James. SWEET HEART is released by Orion for the first time in audio today, with the story read by Anna Acton and a suitably spooky new foreword to the novel read by Peter James himself. SWEET HEART is the second classic Peter James suspense title to have a new audio release, after THE TRUTH last year, followed by its 20th Anniversary Edition paperback edition this February. The new paperback edition of SWEET HEART will be in stores in July 2018. A further eight backlist titles are set to be republished and released in audio by Orion, including FAITH and HOST.

Charley has a strange feeling when she sees the idyllic mill house with its cluster of outbuildings, the lake and the swirling mill stream; a powerful sense of recognition, as if she has been there before. Except she knows she hasn't.

After Charley and her husband Tom move into Elmwood Mill, sinister memories of a previous existence start to haunt her. Despite both their attempts to dismiss everything with rational explanations, the feeling turns to certainty as the memories become increasingly vivid and terrifying.

Charley is persuaded to undergo hypnosis – but in searching deep into her past, she unwitting opens a Pandora's box of evil ... and now the terror is free.

In January 2018, Peter was awarded an Honorary Platinum Award at the Specsavers Bestseller Awards, recognising his considerable achievement, selling over five million copies in the UK over ten years. He will enter the Nielsen 21st Century Hall of Fame for bestselling authors. In Poland he received the Lubimyczytać.pl Horror Book of the Year Award for 2017 and his outstanding contribution to the international crime writing genre was also celebrated last October, when he travelled to Germany to receive the first Rheinbach Glass Dagger Award for Crime Fiction.

Peter James is a New York Times bestseller, as well as achieving multiple Sunday Times Number 1s. His work is published in 37 languages and his novels have sold 19 million copies worldwide. His novel PERFECT PEOPLE was shortlisted for the Wellcome Prize and he won a Barry Award for Best British Crime Novel in 2012. He has won numerous other awards, including the coveted 2016 CWA Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence, and he was publicly voted by WH Smith – Britain's biggest book selling chain – The Best Crime Author of All Time.
