About The Book

The bestselling author of The Party and The Arrangement returns with a twisted tale of fame, obsession, and the dark recesses of social media.

Camryn Lane is living her dream. After years of struggle and rejection, her first novel has finally been published. Her editor is happy; her teenage daughter is proud; and her boyfriend and friends are all excited for her. She’s on top of the world – until she receives a disturbing email from an unknown sender.

Rattled, Camryn swallows the sick feeling in her stomach and resolves to put the missive out of her mind. But when she checks her ratings online, she finds a scathing one-star review. The reviewer is so articulate and convincing that, soon, Camryn’s book is flooded with bad reviews. Could the reviewer be the same person who sent the ugly email? And why do they want to ruin her?

As the online harassment creeps into Camryn’s personal life, she vows to find out who’s behind it. Is it really a disgruntled reader? Or could it be someone she knows? The situation is escalating, and when the abuse turns deadly, it will take everything Camryn has to unmask the enemy so intent on destroying her – and finally learn why she's being targeted.

Raves and Reviews

‘Robyn Harding is a rare talent. I could not put this book down!’

Shari Lapena, internationally bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

‘Everything Robyn Harding writes turns to gold, and her newest high-octane thriller, The Haters, is no exception. A dark, twisted heart-stopper, Harding has written a cautionary tale about the dangers of engaging with online trolls and its life-altering consequences. Filled with Harding’s signature sleight of hand, The Haters grabbed me at page one and kept me blazing through the pages until the final jaw-dropping page.’

Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Overnight Guest and Everyone Is Watching

‘Time and time again, Robyn Harding has proven herself a talented writer with an innate ability to spin a complex tale. Those skills are on full display with her latest novel, The Haters, which somehow manages to be both terrifying and thoughtful.’

Chevy Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Roads

‘A searing, riveting, razor-sharp examination of internet stalking and online bullying.’

May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives

‘Suspenseful and affecting, The Haters is a page-turning portrayal of an author who thinks she’s about to witness her dreams come true, but gets caught up in an ever-worsening nightmare. Robyn Harding spins a twisty tale that will keep you guessing until its wholly satisfying ending.’

Clémence Michallon, author of The Quiet Tenant

‘A menacing page turner with so many brilliant red herrings. I flew through it and was wrongfooted many times. A clever, cautionary, and twisted tale.’

John Marrs, author of The One

‘Harding is a master of the psychological thriller. Loaded with relatable characters, topical themes, and hairpin twists – not to mention a highly entertaining story-within-a-story – The Haters is a terrific read and reminiscent of the best of Lisa Jewell!’

Daniel Kalla, author of Fit to Die

The Haters by Robyn Harding had me hooked (and terrified) from the opening page. No wonder, because this psychological thriller about the dangers of how we handle social media is clever, propulsive, full of truly gasp-worthy moments, and will have you thinking twice before posting anything online again. All the love – and zero hate – for this twisted, suspenseful tale. The Haters is my favourite Harding novel yet.’

Hannah Mary McKinnon, author of Only One Survives
