Two women; two different worlds. Emma is a struggling mother who has put everything on hold. Nina is sophisticated and independent - entirely in control. When the pair meet, Nina generously draws Emma into her life. But this isn't the first time the women's paths have crossed. Nina remembers Emma and she remembers what Emma did. But what exactly does Nina want from her? And how far will she go in pursuit of it?

Comments about Her:

The story bubbles along and you're not really sure where it's heading. It was entertaining and definitely a page turner I read the bulk of in 3 sittings.

Comment on this review

I am tremendously impressed by HER, which is the best-written novel about a toxic friendship since Zoe Heller's NOTES ON A SCANDAL. Its portrait of the evils of envy, boredom and the seduction of wealth is compelling. Above all, I admired the way Lane has taken the new genre of novels addressing the frustrations of motherhood as experienced by professional women, and married them to the psychological thriller

Tautly written psychological thriller . . . there is forensic social observation here. Her London is recognisably real. Both Emma and Nina feel like women you might pass on a leafy Islington street. She has a sharp eye for telling detail . . . Then the endgame, when it comes, is shattering - INDEPENDENT

As seductive as it is chilling, HER is quality literary fiction meets psychological thriller, the devil of which is in the detail - OBSERVER
