FROM THE CRIME WRITER LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018

'Bauer's great gift is her ability to surprise the reader... She makes you think a bit differently about the world' - Daily Telegraph

On the beaches and cliffs of North Devon, young women have become victims in a terrifying game where only one player knows the rules. And when those rules change, the new game is Murder.

But a madman on the loose feels very far from the crumbling, seaside home of ten-year-old Ruby Trick. Instead she lives in constant fear of school bullies, the dark forest, and the threat of her parents' divorce.

Helping her father to catch the killer seems like the only way to keep him close.

As long as the killer doesn’t catch her first.

Belinda's sensational new crime novel EXIT is available to preorder now.
