Inspired by the true story of a shocking scandal engulfing a police department, Nightcrawling is a searing debut novel about vulnerability and survival from an astonishing young talent​​. One night Kiara is picked up by two police officers, and the gruesome deal she is offered in exchange for her freedom lands her at the centre of a media storm. If she agrees to testify in a grand jury trial, she could help expose the sickening corruption of a police department. But honesty comes at a price - one that could leave her family vulnerable to their retaliation and endanger everyone she loves.

Join Leila while she’s in the UK from Oakland, California, to discuss Nightcrawling – already marked as a must-read of 2022.
