The Glass Woman 

Alice McIlroy

Iris Henderson wakes up in a hospital bed alone, with no memory of why or how she got there. Moments later, she is introduced to her husband Marcus, a man she does not even recognise. And things only get stranger from there. Iris is told that she volunteered to be the first test-subject for a ground-breaking AI therapy, and that she is the pioneering scientist behind the experimental treatment. 

Whilst everyone warns her to leave it alone, a confused Iris continually scratches beneath the surface of her seemingly happy marriage and successful career, setting a catastrophic chain of events in motion. 

Secrets will be revealed that have the capacity to destroy her whole life, but Iris can’t stop digging…

ALICE MCILROY was born in London. She graduated in English and has a post-graduate in Law. She completed Faber Academy’s novel-writing programme and her writing was longlisted for the Stylist Prize for Feminist Fiction and Grindstone International Novel Prize. The Glass Woman is her debut novel.
