THE TWISTY NEW THRILLER FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE RUMOUR

Scarlett's aunt lived - and was brutally murdered - in the apartment upstairs. But Scarlett is determined that life return to some kind of normal, even if that means living with just a ceiling between her and the scene of this devastating crime. After all, this is her home. She's safe here. Isn't she?

Dee is busy balancing her job as a funeral director with organising an event to mark the disappearance of her best friend, ten years ago. So she's got enough on her plate without worrying about the threatening messages that are appearing on her company's Facebook page.

When Scarlett approaches Dee about planning her aunt's funeral, there emerges an unexpected link between them. Together, the two women could uncover secrets that have long been buried. Even while someone wants to stop them digging . . .

Reviews

  • Startlingly original . . . It's hard to think of a recent novel than can match Kara's for an almost unbearable level of suspense.
