Product Details


“A deliciously dark, addictive, and twisted page-turner.”—Alice Feeney, New York Times bestselling author of Sometimes I Lie

Precious You is an incredibly addictive thriller that examines women in the workplace, ageism, and the clash of generations. It’s creepy and unnerving, with observations that are often dead-on. A breathtaking debut by Helen Monks Takhar.”—Samantha Downing, internationally bestselling author of My Lovely Wife

“Monks Takhar tackles workplace dynamics, aging, feminism, mental illness, and the hotly debated generation gap, all within the framework of a tightly plotted revenge thriller. . . . Readers won’t be able to tear their eyes away as this runaway train inevitably derails. A wickedly sharp first novel from an author to watch.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Twisted, dark, and shocking . . . Absolutely terrific.”—Jo Spain, internationally bestselling author of The Confession

“Dark, disturbing, compulsive . . . I was genuinely terrified reading this.”—Adele Parks, internationally bestselling author of I Invited Her In

“I gulped this down in a single afternoon. . . . Audacious, dark, and smart, with one of the most shocking scenes I’ve read in a while.”—Phoebe Locke, author of The July Girls

“Disturbing, zeitgeisty, and twisted, Precious You will make you second-guess everything and change the way you look at your colleagues forever.”—Phoebe Morgan, author of The Doll House and The Girl Next Door

“What a debut! Twisty, explosive, and hugely compelling, with hints of Gone Girl . . . Excellent.”—Will Dean, author of Dark Pines and Red Snow

“A brilliantly twisted tale . . . LOVED it.”—Lisa Hall, author of Have You Seen Her

“If you like dark and twisted thrillers with venom in their veins, add this to your wish list!”—Anita Frank, author of The Lost Ones

“A slick, fast-paced, compelling novel that asks genuine questions. I loved it and was hooked from beginning to end.”—Kate Hamer, internationally bestselling author of The Girl in the Red Coat

“[A] dark and disquieting debut . . . Monks Takhar delivers an excruciatingly tense slow burn that’s rife with twists that shock and devastate.”Publishers Weekly

“Takhar’s debut, an intense, character-driven study of revenge, is perfect for those . . . looking for psychologically twisty thrillers . . . à la The Girl on the Train.”Booklist

Precious You promises to be one of the best!”CrimeReads (“The Most Anticipated Crime Books of 2020”)

“Guaranteed to start the mother of all office fights between Generation X and millennials, Monks Takhar’s enjoyable poisonous debut updates All About Eve for our image-obsessed age.”The Independent (“What to Read in 2020”)

“This twisty tale of office rivalry sits at the point where women’s commercial fiction meets psychological thriller. . . . Unmissable.”The Bookseller (“One to Watch”)
