EW: Rosamund Pike is teaming up with Paula Hawkins, the best-selling author of “The Girl on the Train” and “Into the Water”, to narrate her highly anticipated third novel.
“A Slow Fire Burning” follows a web of characters with one thing in common: They’re connected to a young man found stabbed to death on his London houseboat. The thriller unravels the dark secrets in each of their pasts as it simultaneously solves the central murder mystery.
“I love working on audiobooks when the characters are as rich and vivid as Paula’s. I remember David Suchet’s audiobooks of Poirot from when I was a child, and how they rescued long car journeys from tedium. I always vowed to give back for these hours of escape!” said Pike.
Hawkins adds: “Rosamund Pike is absolutely one of my favorite actresses… Listening to her read my words has been a great thrill.”
“A Slow Fire Burning” will be released on August 31st, 2021
