Dishonoured by Jem Tugwell is an addictive read you won’t want to put down!

Dishonoured is the new psychological thriller from critically acclaimed author Jem Tugwell.

Jem Tugwell was born in Berkshire. His first two critically acclaimed novels, Proximity and No Signal are exciting crime fiction novels set in the near future, featuring DI Clive Lussac and his partner Zoe Jordan.

Jem has a Crime Writing MA from City University, an MBA and a BSc in Computer Science and in a past life, Jem had a successful career in IT and investment management. Jem’s loves are snowboarding, old cars and bikes. He lives in Surrey with his wife and has two children.

Dishonoured is his first psychological thriller.


Dan has worked hard for the perfect life. He has a loving wife, beautiful kids, a fabulous home and is a successful businessman.

One afternoon Dan steps onto his usual train and sees the waitress who served him an hour earlier. It all seemed so normal, but it was the most dreadful mistake. Four stops later, Dan is a criminal who has lost everything. He’d only just met her, so why did she destroy him—and why did she say ‘Sorry’?

Dan battles through a web of lies and deceit to clear his name and win his life back, but first, he needs to find out who plotted his downfall.

Dishonoured does not feel as if it’s Jem Tugwell’s first psychological thriller. Reading it feels as if the author has been writing this genre for years and this is another fresh and exciting release.

The story is utterly gripping and a highly addictive read which makes it impossible to put down. Dishonoured makes you question the decisions you make, as it shows just how a split-second decision can change everything. As a character, Dan is very easy to connect with and you feel sympathy for him as the story unfolds and you get to witness the journey he goes on.

Dishonoured is a complete rollercoaster ride with so many twist and turns you will be breathless by the end.

Dishonoured will be released on 14 January via Serpentine books, you can get a copy here.
