Product Details


“[A] propulsive thriller. . .Through every twist, these enterprising ladies will have you breathlessly trying to keep up with them.”—Marie Claire

“This thriller offers a nonstop plot and layers of mystery—not to mention smart commentary on female friendships and social media.”—Real Simple

“As she did in her debut The Lost Night, Andrea Bartz constructed a complex cast of female characters who will make ‘feminist thriller’ your new favorite genre. Read The Herd ASAP—but maybe not at a coworking space.”HelloGiggles

“Her hard-hitting debut, The Lost Night, has made Andrea Bartz one to watch, and her second novel, The Herd, confirms her reputation. . . . As someone whose building was recently taken over by a WeWork and who now has to wait ten minutes for the elevator, I can’t endorse this book enough.”CrimeReads  

“Darkness swirls beneath the surface of the idyllic setting at the center of this thriller. From its gorgeously haunting opening to its spine-chilling final lines, The Herd delivers an astute exploration of female ambition in a world that tries like hell to keep women down. You won’t be able to stop reading this dazzling nail-biter until you unearth every last secret its characters keep buried.”—Megan Collins, author of The Winter Sister     

“Andrea Bartz has created another deliciously twisty thriller that is so much more than a page-turner. At its heart, The Herd is an ambitious novel about the complex dynamics of an exclusive all-female coworking space—empowering yet cut-throat, open yet exclusive. Filled with insights and biting social commentary about the commoditization of female ambition, The Herd is sure to be one of the spring’s buzziest must-reads.”—Angie Kim, national bestselling author of Miracle Creek

“A uniquely timely whodunit set in an exclusive, women’s only co-working space.”The Boston Globe

“The Herd begins by following the recipe for a classic whodunit, but a backdrop that speaks to the modern Millennial woman makes this thriller feel fun and fresh.…A fast-paced look at friendship, family, ambition and what can happen when carefully built facades start to crumble.”­––San Francisco Chronicle

“Bartz packs in plenty of twists, with a deliberate pace that picks up speed at the end. Surprises and suspense married with themes on the nature of womanhood and sisterhood make this ideal for fans of Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train or Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects.”Library Journal

“This fast-paced, irony-strewn blend of ruthless ambition, jealousy, and buried secrets is guaranteed armchair escapism.”Booklist
