Alex Finlay

WHAT HAVE WE DONE, Alex Finlay’s third novel, has been praised by Booklist as a “gripping tale” that “delivers both heart-pounding action and plenty of twists to keep the reader guessing.” In a starred review, Publishers Weekly raves: “Readers will eagerly follow the maze-like plot, with its many twists and turns, to the exciting conclusion. This isn’t to be missed;” and Amazon Book Review declares that “Finlay could fashion a white-knuckle cliffhanger out of a trip to the store, so plan to start and finish this on the same day, maybe the same afternoon.” WHAT HAVE WE DONE has been chosen by librarians across the country to join the LibraryReads Hall of Fame and has been named on numerous “Best of” and “Most Anticipated” lists, including Goodreads, Buzzfeed, Amazon, BookBub, and BookPage.

Alex’s debut, EVERY LAST FEAR, was one of the most anticipated and acclaimed thrillers of 2021. It was named a Best Book of the Month, Mystery and Thriller category, by Amazon; chosen as an Indie Next pick and a LibraryReads pick; and Kobo named it a Best Audiobook of the Month. Newsweek declared it “gripping from the first bone-chilling line to the final page,” and Parade raved: “It’s twisty and unputdownable and intensifies until the very end.” THE NIGHT SHIFT, Alex Finlay’s widely acclaimed follow up, was a LibraryReads pick for March 2022, and it was named on over a dozen “Best of” and “Most Anticipated” lists, including Goodreads, Buzzfeed, Newsweek, BookBub, PopSugar, E! News, The Nerd Daily, and Book Riot. E! News declared: “It’s safe to say Finlay is one of the genre’s most exciting voices.” His work has been licensed in eighteen languages and optioned for film and television.
