Celebrating Significance!


Jo Mazelis’ fantastic debut novel Significance, described by Cathy Galvin as “A must read for anyone who loves literary fiction and believes they would never read a crime novel”, was one of the eight winners of the 2015 Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize earlier this year.

Throughout the summer, Jerwood Fiction Uncovered have been celebrating one of its winners, and this week it’s Significance‘s turn!


Lucy Swann is trying on a new life. She’s cut and dyed her hair and bought new clothes, but she’s only got as far as a small town in northern France when her flight is violently cut short. When Inspector Vivier and his handsome assistant Sabine Pelat begin their investigation the chance encounters of her last days take on a new significance.

Lucy’s death, like a stone thrown into a pool, sends out far-reaching ripples, altering the lives of people who never knew her as well as those of her loved ones back home.

Head on over to the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered website this week and you’ll be able to read the first chapter of Significance and take a peek at some reviews that will make you want to read the rest of it, if you haven’t already! 

Don’t forget to head on over to Twitter where you can follow us @SerenBooks, Jo Mazelis @JoMazelis, and Jerwood Fiction Uncovered @FictUncovered and keep up to date with all of the celebrations.
