Thief Press

In the vanishing space beyond middlebrow and the mass market, it’s harder than ever for first novelists to find a place.

Thief Press is an experiment in digital-only publishing. We aim to publish good, original, new writing in digital-first editions – the kind of things we like to read.

It’s 2005, a forgettable year. Hired as a driver by Jaimie’s London gallery, Francis sets out with Jaimie on a road trip to Turin, where Jaimie’s new exhibition will open.

Against the winter backdrop of the road, the mountains, and the city, events spin violently out of control.

“Compelling,” “Elegaic,” “Dreamy,” “Hypnotic,” “Deliciously evocative” – this first novel by Ben Morris is a road-novel remade as slow-burning thriller.

Word of mouth for Driving Jaimie is terrific. Check out the newest 5 STAR review on Amazon:

I loved Driving Jamie, Ben Morris’ first novel. Its gentle and beautifully descriptive opening chapters are deceptive, so that as the pace gathers in the later sections, the reader is startled by the ease with which this absorbing read becomes a white knuckle ride. Stylish, accomplished and un put down-able.

Driving Jaimie is a thriller of the month for April on Rated COMPELLING, here’s an extract from Jane Brown’s review:

The book is very well written and descriptive, having a real poetic feel to it. I found it compelling all the way through to the end of the book.This is the first book from Ben Morris and I am eagerly awaiting the next book. This is a new author to look out for.
