Gone Girl Star Rosamund Pike Narrates Paula Hawkins’ New Thriller

The Girl on the Train was a runaway international #1 bestseller, and now Paula Hawkins fans have a new dark mystery to solve: when it comes to revenge, how far will three women go to find peace? Narrated by Golden Globe winner and star of Gone Girl Rosamund Pike, A Slow Fire Burning is the kind of scorching thriller that will pull listeners into another reality—and keep them guessing to the very end.

Rosamund Pike is absolutely one of my favorite actresses—I was absolutely delighted when I heard she was going to read A Slow Fire Burning. Listening to Rosamund read my words has been a great thrill.Paula Hawkins

Rosamund Pike is celebrated internationally for her work on stage and screen, including her Oscar-nominated role as Amy Elliott Dunne in Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, and most recently her Golden Globe-winning performance in I Care a Lot. Pike has also previously showcased her voice work both on television (Thunderbirds Are Go!) as well as audiobook narration (Ian Fleming’s The Spy Who Loved Me, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice). Currently Rosamund is appearing as Edith Wilson, in the humorous podcast series Edith! which explores the time the wife of President Woodrow Wilson concealed, from Cabinet and country, the fact that her husband was in a coma.

I love working on audiobooks when the characters are as rich and vivid as Paula’s. I remember David Suchet’s audiobooks of Poirot from when I was a child, and how they rescued long car journeys from tedium. I always vowed to give back for these hours of escape! Paula’s latest novel is all set in Islington and it was wonderful to be able to tell a story of murder and intrigue set in this postcode, and bring to life damaged and mysterious characters who all inhabit streets I know so well. I love Paula’s writing, full of wonderful observations on the way people behave, a beautiful sense of place, and a wonderful ear for dialogue.Rosamund Pike
