Strange Sally Diamond

Strange Sally Diamond

Crime Novel of the Year, Irish Book Awards 2023

Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

From the Number 1 bestselling author of Our Little Cruelties and Skin Deep


Sally Diamond cannot understand why what she did was so strange. She was only doing what her father told her to do, to put him out with the rubbish when he died.

Now Sally is the centre of attention, not only from the hungry media and worried police, but also a sinister voice from a past she has no memory of. As she begins to discover the horrors of her childhood, recluse Sally steps into the world for the first time, making new friends, finding independence, and learning that people don't always mean what they say.

But when messages start arriving from a stranger who knows far more about her past than she knows herself, Sally's life will be thrown into chaos once again . . .
