WHAT IF YOUR PARENTS HAD BEEN LYING TO YOU SINCE THE DAY YOU WERE BORN?
From the author of the THRILLING SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER DEAR AMY.
Can you trust anyone?
Sophia's parents lead quiet, unremarkable lives. At least that is what she's always believed.
Has everyone got something to hide?
Until the day she arrives at her childhood home to find a house ringing with silence. Her mother is hanging from a tree. Her father is lying in a pool of his own blood, near to death.
What if the person lying to you is the one closest to you?
The police are convinced it is an attempted murder-suicide. But Sophia is sure that the woman who brought her up isn't a killer. As her father is too ill to talk it is up to Sophia to clear her mother's name. And to do this she needs to delve deep into her family's past - a past full of dark secrets she never suspected were there . . .

THE UNMISSABLE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER
Would you risk your life to save a stranger?
A local schoolgirl has been missing for weeks when Margot Lewis, agony aunt of the 'Dear Amy' advice column, receives a letter:
I've been kidnapped by a strange man.
I don't know where I am.
Please help me,
This must be a hoax. Because Bethan Avery is another young girl, who went missing twenty years ago.
As more letters arrive, Margot becomes consumed by finding the sender and - unlike the police - convinced that the girls' disappearances are connected.
Solving this puzzle could save someone's life - but could it also cost Margot her own?
