Product Details


One of the most anticipated thrillers of 2020, according to Marie Claire · Newsweek · The Boston Globe · HelloGiggles · Book Riot · Popsugar · CrimeReads · Bustle · She Reads

“Pulsing with suspense, this twisty story also tackles some timely themes, including the competitive world of media, female ambition, and the cost of success.” Book Riot  

“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    

“A smart, twisty thriller . . . Bartz is especially astute at highlighting the hypocrisy of glamorous careerist feminism. Readers won’t want to put this down.” Publishers Weekly

“A soapy and fun woman-centric thriller…Bartz whips up a fast pace.” Kirkus Reviews    

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

“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  

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

The Herd is a fascinating, chilling look inside an upscale workspace for women in New York City. Andrea Bartz nails this one, from the twisty plot to what it means to be a professional woman in today’s world. This book will make you wonder how well you know your coworkers.”—Samantha Downing, USA Today bestselling author of My Lovely Wife   

“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
