By Sam Blake

Sam Blake has been writing fiction since her husband set sail across the Atlantic for eight weeks and she had an idea for a book. Her debut novel 'Little Bones' (Bonnier 2016) was No 1 in Ireland for four weeks, remained in the top 10 for another four, and was nominated for Irish Crime Novel of the Year. It launched the bestselling Cat Connolly trilogy.

Moving away from police procedurals Sam is keeping a focus on strong female characters, writing psychological thrillers for Corvus Books. 'Keep Your Eyes On Me' went straight to No 1 in January 2020 and 'The Dark Room' went straight into the bestseller list in January 2021. Remember My Name is due out in January 2022 with her spiderweb book, the digital exclusive,  High Pressure coming September 2021.

Sam is originally from St. Albans in Hertfordshire but had lived at the foot of the Wicklow mountains for more years that she lived in the UK. She had two teenagers, three cats and lives in a 200-year-old cottage with an occasional poltergeist who moves things at the most inconvenient moments.

Keep Your Eyes on Me

Sam (Author) Blake

“Blake’s strength lies in her ability to combine tough and memorable characters with a deliciously complex and fast-moving plot that never wanes. She has taken the simple concept of revenge, but turned it into a riveting tale that criss-crosses the globe and involves smuggled antiques, forged artworks and even the Russian mafia. The tension never lets up and as we hurtle towards the last few pages, Blake fires in one last plot grenade that makes you question everything you have just read.” Irish Independent

Remember My Name

Sam Blake

£12.99 £12.34

‘This is an incredibly taut thrill with a tense undercurrent of threat rippling through every page. It’s compelling, modern thriller writing at its very best, combining sharply drawn characters with a dark, gripping plot. Utterly addictive!’ Victoria Dowd ‘A high-octane thrill-ride into the dark underbelly of cutting-edge tech, full of intrigue, glamour and unforgettable female characters. If your webcam isn’t already covered up, it will be after you read this book.’ Catherine Ryan Howard “A breathless STUNNER of a thriller and you need to read it!” Miranda Dickinson ‘Another Sam Blake cracker.’ William Ryan ‘Remember My Name is a heady cocktail of wealth, adultery, murder, bribery and corporate espionage, with a chaser of lies, greed and jealousy. The pacey plot is augmented by crisp writing and memorable characters.’ Breda Brown in the Sunday Independent ‘In the hands of a less talented writer, this might have amounted to an average thriller. Fortunately, Sam Blake ramps up the tension superbly and delivers one of her signature killer twists in a book that has more hairpin bends and turns than San Francisco’s famous Lombard Street…In Remember My Name, she seamlessly shifts up through the gears. What could have been a straight romantic tale of infidelity and retribution becomes a pedal-to-the-metal full-throttle murder mystery. The change of direction in the storyline is handled beautifully, and as mystery and mayhem envelop the main players, it becomes clear that virtually all of them have dark secrets to hide.’ Myles McWeeney, Independent.ie
