*Belinda Bauer's pulse-pounding new thriller, SNAP, is available to pre-order now!*

From Publishers Weekly

10 August 2015 – British author Bauer's highly original mystery boasts two unusual protagonists. The first is Sam Galen, a man in a coma ("I'm asleep and I cannot tell you how hard I try to wake up"). The other is Patrick Fort, who has Asperger's syndrome. Patrick has trouble interacting with people, but thanks to a disability quota, he has been admitted as a medical student to Cardiff University in Wales. In an anatomy class, Patrick and four other students learn to dissect a cadaver (identified only by number) and discover the cause of death. Patrick risks everything to make the correct diagnosis, even when his efforts could not only get him expelled but also threaten his life. Bauer (Blacklands) brilliantly captures both the horror and helplessness of Sam's being mentally alive in an unresponsive body, as well as the mystification Patrick suffers in virtually all dealings with others. Even without the author's absorbing storytelling, this standalone deserves attention for sheer inventiveness.

Customer Reviews

Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer

Had me hooked from start to finish... An outstanding page turner!
This author is clearly on the way to becoming a house hold name.
There was not one paragraph that was skipped over... Each word had to be digested fully. Belinda is a genius in the way that she can combine humour into her story lines.
If you haven't yet read a Belinda Bauer novel it's time you did. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.


After hearing about this book on radio 2 book of the month, I thought I would give it a go and I wasn't disappointed, there were lots of twists and turns keeping you glued to the pages from start to finish, although the closing was a little lame, but still an exciting read.

Refreshingly different

This is unlike any other murder mystery I've read. The lead character is fascinating and the plot twist totally unexpected. I really enjoyed the way the story was laid out, with the different perspectives all coming together at the end.
