The Global Bestselling Author

The crime and thriller writer with rave reviews

Jack Jordan is the global number one bestselling author of Anything for Her (2015), My Girl (2016), A Woman Scorned (2018), Before Her Eyes (2018) and Night by Night, an Amazon No.1 bestseller in the UK, Canada, and Australia. His eagerly awaited fifth novel Do No Harm was sold as a six-figure deal in a three-way auction to Simon & Schuster and is set to be the thriller of the summer in 2022 with enthusiastic advance reviews from well-known crime and thriller writers. The idea for Do No Harm came to Jack after undergoing a minor medical procedure where he had to be sedated and trust strangers with his welfare. After the anaesthesia wore off, Jack began scribbling his notes, wondering to himself just how iron-clad a surgeon’s oath is, and what it would take to break it...

Jack wrote his first novel at the age of seventeen, while locked away inside his house battling agoraphobia. Self-publishing his first novels before agents and publishers came calling, he achieved sales of over 100,000 copies on the strength of his strong storytelling skills. Ten years later, he lives in Brighton and enjoys the sea air and the author’s working life. If you’re writing crime or a psychological suspense thriller, you’ll find Jack an enthusiastic and exciting tutor.

In a nutshell: don’t give up. Keep writing, keep sending manuscripts to agents – self-publish if you have to – just keep writing, submitting and/or self-publishing until you achieve your goal.

—Jack Jordan

Do No Harm

A man lies on the operating table in front of me.

As a surgeon, it’s my job to save him. As a mother, I know I must kill him. You might think that I’m a monster. But there really is only one choice.

I must get away with murder. Or I will never see my son again.

I’ve saved many lives. Would you trust me with yours?

‘The ultimate page-turning edge-of-your-seat thriller.’ —Nikki Smith

‘This one is LITERALLY the definition of an edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting, buttock-clenching thriller.’ —Louise Beech

‘Irresistible.’ —Louise Candlish

Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.

Before Her Eyes

She can’t see the killer. But the killer can see her...

Naomi has been blind since birth. Struggling with living in a small, claustrophobic town, she contemplates ending her life. But then she stumbles across the body of a young woman who has been brutally murdered. She senses someone else there at the scene – watching her. Naomi may not be able to see the killer’s face, but she is still the only person who can identify him. As the police begin hunting the person responsible and more victims are discovered, Naomi is forced to answer the question on which her fate hangs: why did the killer let her live?

In a town this small, the murderer must be close, perhaps even before her very eyes...
