A Matter of Time is the outstanding new novel from the highly acclaimed author of All the Hidden Truths and What You Pay For, both shortlisted for the CWA Golden Dagger Award. And the new novel is set in the Borders. At 8am the first shots are fired. At 1pm the police establish that the gunman has a hostage. By 5pm a siege is underway. At 9pm DI Helen Birch walks, alone and unarmed, into an abandoned Borders farmhouse to negotiate with the killer. One day. One woman. One chance to get everyone out alive. This is a brilliant, atmospheric, gripping novel. Claire is the current Writer in Residence at Edinburgh University.
