The Night in Question

The Night in Question


'A wonderfully warm and involving page-turner.' Clare Chambers, Sunday Times bestselling author of Small Pleasures

Florence Butterfield has lived an extraordinary life full of travel, passion and adventure. But, at eighty-seven, she suspects there are no more surprises to come her way.

Then, one midsummer's night, something terrible happens - so strange and unexpected that Florrie is suspicious. Was this really an accident, or is she living alongside a would-be murderer?

The only clue is a magenta envelope, discarded earlier that day.

And Florrie - cheerfully independent but often overlooked - is the only person determined to uncover the truth.

As she does, Florrie finds herself looking back on her own life . . . and a long-buried secret, traced in faded scars across her knuckles, becomes ever harder to ignore.

Prize-winning author Susan Fletcher's The Night in Question is an absorbing and uplifting story with a uniquely loveable protagonist at its heart.
