‘ONE NIGHT, NEW YORK transports the reader to the glitter and the danger of old New York. A page-turner with style.’ ERIN KELLY

‘ENTHRALLING’ THE TIMES, BEST NEW HISTORICAL FICTION

A THRILLING DEBUT NOVEL OF CORRUPTION AND MURDER, SET IN THE NIGHTCLUBS, TENEMENTS AND SKYSCRAPERS OF 1930s NEW YORK – FROM THE WINNER OF THE VIRAGO/THE POOL NEW CRIME WRITER AWARD.

At the top of the Empire State Building on a freezing December night, two women hold their breath. Frances and Agnes are waiting for the man who has wronged them. They plan to seek the ultimate revenge.

Set over the course of a single night, One Night, New York is a detective story, a romance and a coming-of-age tale. It is also a story of old New York, of bohemian Greenwich Village between the wars, of floozies and artists and addicts, of a city that sucked in creatives and immigrants alike, lighting up the world, while all around America burned amid the heat of the Great Depression.

‘An atmospheric portrait of a city in the grip of the Great Depression as well as a compelling crime story’ GUARDIAN

‘Thompson’s impressive debut delivers a beautifully detailed and multifaceted account of Jazz Age New York’ IRISH TIMES

‘An assured debut so evocative you can almost smell the bathtub gin wafting off the pages’ RED MAGAZINE
