Free sample

Under a cloudless Mediterranean sky, two families wheel their suitcases past swaying palm trees towards their hotel to grab a spot by the pool. But behind the smiles, someone is hiding a terrible secret…


I never wanted to come on this trip. I thought the accident had torn us apart forever, but then my mother called out of the blue, wanting to make amends. So here we are, two families on a beautiful island, sipping sangria like nothing ever happened.


My parents’ oldest friend, Daniel, was invited too – I’ve never trusted him, and now he brings up my past mistake every chance he gets. And why does his son, Victor, keep disappearing off on his own?


Even my brother’s here, with his twins. It’s amazing to see my nieces playing happily in the pool. After what happened at home, it still hurts me to be around the girls, but more so that my brother doesn’t trust me alone with them.


Despite everything, it’s going surprisingly well – everyone forcing a smile at the dinner table, laughing at the twins’ antics – until the night my father is attacked on the beach, left for dead on the sand.


As always, all fingers point to me, but this time I know for certain that I’m innocent. And if I’m not guilty, someone else on this holiday is…


A unique and totally gripping psychological thriller that will have fans of T.M. Logan and The Girl on the Train racing through the pages late into the night.

I pinch the screen to zoom until I’m staring at the face of a ghost. A man with very short hair, staring directly at the camera with piercing brown eyes.


He is as he was when I last saw him: wrinkles around the corners of the eyes and a knowing smirk. That’s the expression I see when I can’t sleep.


My body tenses. It can’t be him. It’s not my ex-husband. It’s not David. 


I know that better than anyone because he didn’t walk out on me.


He didn’t disappear two years ago and he’s not a missing person.


I know that for a fact because I’m the one who killed him.


A brilliantly twisty thriller which will have fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl absolutely gripped.

Lucy gets the same bus every day. Today, her journey home will change her life.


Lucy can barely afford her weekly ticket for the grimy number 24, tries to avoid eye contact, and, if she’s really lucky, she gets a seat and reads a chapter of her book. But it’s a Friday – and the bus is always crammed at the end of the week. She keeps her elbows close and clings to a pole at every juddering stop. All she wants to do is get home to her dog, Billy, the only comfort she has right now. 


When she gets off, something feels different.


An envelope stuffed with thousands of pounds is in her bag.


Is it the answer to her prayers, or the beginning of a nightmare?


Because, in the end, everything has a price.


A compulsive read that will have you absolutely hooked and reading late into the night.

'I was totally gripped. It only took me a few hours to read this cover to cover and I barely put it down… I loved the writing style and will definitely read more by this author.’ Goodreads Reviewer 


'A novel of spine-tingling suspense that had me hooked from the very first paragraph. A delicious sense of unease settles in early, and only gains momentum as the story progresses. Quite simply, a fabulous read… A brilliantly crafted novel that I could not put down, even for a second. I was completely riveted from the word go. Lucy is a fascinatingly drawn character, whose reliability as a narrator is suspect at best. I adored this read, and would not hesitate to recommended it most highly.’ Goodreads Reviewer 


‘Kerry Wilkinson knows how to write! And craft a really good psychological thriller… There are a myriad of interesting characters along the way with plenty of red herrings. The end moves in like a runaway train and the twist is not what I was expecting.’ Goodreads Reviewer


'A fantastic thriller that I could not put down. A new favorite author to add to my list. Fabulous writing and characters.’ Goodreads Reviewer 


'I was drawn in by the concept and the beginning really hooked me. Kerry Wilkinson definitely has an original voice and I can see why there has been a lot of talk about this book. I definitely needed to know how it all turned out!’ Ingrid Alexander Writes 


‘It gripped me from the start and kept me turning the pages constantly. I liked Lucy’s character and really felt a connection to her and the people who lived around her, I think what was so emotive about this is the ‘everyday’ people who were central to the story. The people felt real…Really creepy and twisted, absolutely brilliant!’ Life Has a Funny Way 


'Great read. My first from this author but definitely not my last. Tons of suspense and twists and turns. Can't wait for more.’ Goodreads Reviewer 


‘My first Kerry Wilkinson novel but absolutely not my last. From the offset you feel the tension build… Some great characters, an unusual plot and storyline and it's many twists make this a very enjoyable and engrossing read.’ NetGalley Reviewer 


'I was totally gripped. It only took me a few hours to read this cover to cover and I barely put it down… I loved the writing style and will definitely read more by this author.’ Goodreads Reviewer

‘A gripping, intriguing mystery…an entertaining, thrilling story.’ Nicki’s Life of Crime

They told us he had been missing for nearly two days, that he probably drowned. They told us a lie.

Megan was ten years old when her older brother, Zac, went missing among the cliffs, caves and beaches that surround the small seaside town of Whitecliff. 

A decade later and a car crash has claimed the lives of her parents.

Megan and her younger sister Chloe return to Whitecliff one summer for the first time since their brother’s disappearance. Megan says it’s to get her parents’ affairs in order. There are boxes to pack, junk to clear, a rundown cottage to sell. But that’s not the real reason. 

Megan has come to confront her family’s past after receiving a postcard on the day of her parents’ funeral. It had a photograph of Whitecliff on the front and a single letter on the back.

‘Z’ is all it read.

Z for Zac.

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will have fans of Louise Jensen, The Girl on the Train and The Silent Child absolutely hooked.
