Description

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • In Tom Savage’s chilling novel of suspense, an ambitious reporter is beckoned to an island paradise for the story of a lifetime. But this scoop might just be the death of her.
 
Fifty years ago, on the Caribbean island of St. Thomas, two teenagers born to privilege were convicted of slaughtering their parents in cold blood. Today the men are free and a Hollywood movie has been made about the murders. For Karen Tyler, an eager New York journalist, the case is irresistible. She has been invited to the Virgin Islands for an interview that’s too good to pass up . . . and sounds too good to be true.
 
Karen packs her bikini and her digital recorder and follows an ingeniously designed trail that leads her to a wealthy, mysterious figure. The man claims to be one of the notorious boys, but Karen soon learns that all is not as it seems. On this isolated utopia of sun and surf, a young reporter far from home fights for the truth—and for her life. Because the shocking secret behind the infamous atrocities has remained hidden all these years. And the killing isn’t over yet.

Praise for A Penny for the Hangman
 
“Tom Savage spins a web of suspense into this tale of far-off climes, interweaving letters, newspaper accounts, and diary fragments for a pulled-from-the-headlines feel. In Cold Blood meets ‘The Most Dangerous Game,’ A Penny for the Hangman is a predator-and-prey chase that takes the reader to a tropical paradise, and reveals the steaming underbelly it hides.”—Jenny Milchman, award-winning author of Cover of Snow

Customer Reviews

Great Suspense!

This was a great book that really kept me guessing. The storyline was very suspenseful, and it kept me captivated from the beginning until the end. It had some great characters, and I will be looking for more by this author.

Not too bad!

It sort of slugs along at first, but give it time. Not good enough for movie material, but would make a three-part television special. I figured out the villain early on, but the last chapters were a definite surprise.

A Penny for the Hangman

Dose up on caffeine, settle down on the comfiest spot and prepare to read cover to cover. Best book in weeks from a voracious reader. You won't be able to put it down!!!
