Rosamund Lupton

What would you do if you had three hours to save the people you love?

In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege.

Children and teachers barricade themselves into classrooms, the library, the theatre. The headmaster lies wounded in the library, unable to help his trapped students and staff. Outside, a police psychiatrist must identify the gunmen, while parents gather desperate for news. In three intense hours, all must find the courage to stand up to evil and save the people they love.

Heartbreaking and gripping, you’ll remember it long after you’ve put the book down.

Rosamund sets the scene for us…


Three Hours (Penguin paperback, £8.99) is available now from Amazon.
