Summary

From the author of The Undoing

‘Remarkable.’ Stephen King
‘Breathtakingly suspenseful.’ Megan Abbott
‘Smart, surprising and stealthily unsettling.’ The Times

When a young writer dies before completing his first novel, his teacher, Jake, (himself a failed novelist) helps himself to its plot. The resulting book is a phenomenal success. But what if somebody out there knows?

Somebody does. And if Jake can’t figure out who he’s dealing with, he risks something far worse than the loss of his career.

What readers are saying

‘It builds to a legitimately great ending that I may never forget. Highly recommended.’

‘This book is thrilling, exciting and totally nerve-racking! It definitely had me on the edge of my seat and reading well past my bedtime.’

‘Addictive . . . I read it quickly without coming up much for air.’

‘Wow! This book blew me away- I read it so fast and the ending is so good! No spoilers- just read it.’

‘I was pleasantly surprised to find that the best plot ever really is THAT good.’

LitHub
Critic Reviews

A twisty page-turner (yes, I stayed up nearly all night to finish it.)

Financial Times
Critic Reviews

he Plot is one of the best novels I’ve ever read about writers and writing. It’s also insanely readable and the suspense quotient is through the roof. It’s remarkable.

Stephen King
Critic Reviews

From its first pages, Jean Hanff Korelitz’s The Plot ensnares you in a rich tangle of literary vanities, treachery and fraud. Psychologically acute and breathtakingly suspenseful, you’ll find yourself rushing towards a finale both astonishing and utterly earned.
