Sinossi:

The electrifying new thriller from the acclaimed author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

He tried to take my life. Instead I took his.

It was a long time ago. I remember it was dark, and I didn't see my killer until it was too late. As I died, my hand touched his. That's when the first switch took place.

Suddenly, I was looking through the eyes of my killer, and I was watching myself die.

Now switching is easy. I can jump from body to body, have any life, be anyone.

Some people touch lives. Others take them. I do both.

Recensione:

Touch is little short of a masterpiece . . . both a thought-provoking literary treatise on what makes us human, and a genre-thriller that rattles on at a breakneck pace. Excellent. ( INDEPENDENT)

Poignant and intensely gripping ( GUARDIAN)

North's talent shines out ( SUNDAY TIMES)

The quality of the writing and the dazzlingly imaginative heart of this exciting book will seduce even scifi sceptics, and keep readers absolutely hooked to the dramatic conclusion ( SUNDAY MIRROR)

One of the cleverest, most compelling books I've read in a long time. The intoxicating voice, ingenious premise and intricate plot will have readers clamouring for a copy. Touch has bestseller written all over it and Claire North is one hell of a writer ( C. L. Taylor, author of THE ACCIDENT)

A work of sparkling originality that works both as mesmerising thriller and exploration of what it means, at the most profound level, to be human ( Alex Marwood, author of THE WICKED GIRLS)

I was totally and utterly gripped, it's just extraordinary. Absolutely mesmerising ( Clare Mackintosh, author, feature writer and columnist)

As intriguing and breathless as it is brilliantly original, constantly defying expectations and a step (or two) ahead of the reader. Featuring a troubled hero who can move from body to body just by grazing someone's fingertip and who becomes the subject of a sinister assassination attempt . . . Agile, unpredictable, this one will keep you awake at night in the search for answers

( LOVE READING)

A brilliantly balanced knife's edge of a book - fast-paced and thrilling, it's somehow also languorous, thoughtful, intelligently intimate . . . I am left staggered into an awed slow-clap at everything North has accomplished here. Touch is touching, horrifying, magnificent; step into it, and it will step into you. ( NPR)

Touch is fast, smart, cinematic and with a cracking central idea. This is absolutely destined to be one of the biggest thrillers of 2015 . . . A very, very impressive second outing ( Rick O'Shea, radio presenter)

Claire North's second novel, Touch, is perfect for fantasy lovers wanting to lose themselves in a new world. Just as in her previous book, The First Fifteen Lives Of Harry August, North explores questions of gender and identity through difficult relationships and complicated emotions, all set to vivid backdrops of a strange parallel universe. ( MARIE CLAIRE)

A dark thriller that asks readers to imagine whom they would be if they could be anyone. Literally . . . This fast-paced tale starts with a bang and continues with a bunch more of them . . . The high stakes and breakneck pace of the plot will draw readers in, and the meditations on what it means to be human and to be loved will linger long after the last shot is fired ( KIRKUS)

An intensely gripping cat and mouse game . . . Seriously I cannot get over how amazingly good Claire North is. I could have read this book forever. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August was so smart, Touch is beyond genius. This will be one of THE books of 2015. Mark my words ( BITE THE BOOK)

Powerful, disquieting, and provocative ( PORNOKITSCH)

The writing is stunning; the action . . . exhilarating; the depth and emotion - always - thought-provoking and touching ( THE LITERARY TREE)

Triumphant . . . This novel is utterly engaging, addictive, and thought-provoking . . . simply superb ( CIVILIAN READER)

Offers readers a fast-paced, action-packed, nerve-wracking plot centered around an intense game of "cat and mouse" . . . The writing is gorgeous. As I read, my fingers were itching to underline quotes on virtually every page. The characters are richly drawn and compelling. The plot is utterly riveting. The book is pretty much perfect, is what I'm saying. ( BOOKTOPIA)

Fast-paced, imaginative . . . There is plenty of conspiracy and intrigue in this deftly paced novel, but North also poses subtle questions about identity and love. In the end, it is not power that Kepler and its nemesis are fighting over but the right to be known. ( WASHINGTON POST)

Forget all the other thrillers, this is one of the biggest things this year. Make sure you read this one. ( THE BOOK PLANK)
