Cover and Blurb Revealed for Day Four, the Sequel to Sarah Lotz’s The Three

Day Four

Alert! British publishing house Hodder & Stoughton has released the blurb and UK cover for Sarah Lotz’s new book Day Four, the sequel to the smash hit The Three.

Day Four was first named back in November 2013, when Company Pictures in London acquired the TV rights, but a sequel to The Three was first announced in 2012, when Lotz signed a six-figure deal with Hodder and Stoughton.

According to the write-up, Day Four will be “perfect” for fans of Lauren Beukes’s The Shining Girls:

Four planes. Three survivors. One message. It seemed like the end of the world… but it wasn’t. This, however, just might be.

The extraordinary, unforgettable sequel to The Three – perfect for fans of The Shining Girls, The Passage and Lost.

Four days into a five day singles cruise on the Gulf of Mexico, the ageing ship Beautiful Dreamer stops dead in the water. With no electricity and no cellular signals, the passengers and crew have no way to call for help. But everyone is certain that rescue teams will come looking for them soon. All they have to do is wait.

That is, until the toilets stop working and the food begins to run out. When the body of a woman is discovered in her cabin the passengers start to panic. There’s a murderer on board the Beautiful Dreamer … and maybe something worse.

Day Four is due to be published by Hodder in the UK on 21 May, 2015, and in South African in late June/early July.
