The Woman on the Ledge

The Woman on the Ledge

the MUST-READ psychological thriller for 2024, with a twist you won't see coming


Brought to you by Penguin.

Tate Kinsella is a single, out-of-work actor
working as a temp at a London bank when the police arrest her for murder.

A woman has fallen to her death from the bank's twenty-fifth floor roof terrace.

Tate confesses to having been alone with the victim moments before she died, but insists she had nothing to do with the tragedy, telling her lawyer she's been framed.

The lawyer agrees to help Tate prove her innocence. But it soon becomes clear Tate knows a lot more than she is letting on.

Whose secrets is Tate keeping? And why?

As the mystery unfolds, it becomes clear that the key to the truth lies in the past, and that nothing about the woman on the ledge is as straightforward as it first appears ...

Murder. Obsession. Revenge. The Woman on the Ledge is a psychological thriller and a powerful story of female friendship that won't let you go until the final gripping page.
