And Then There Were Four: A novel of suspense

· Nancy Werlin

About this ebook

Thrilling suspense from New York Times bestselling and Edgar award winner Nancy Werlin. 

Five teens are students at Rockland Academy, and they’re the only ones summoned to a meeting in an old building—when the roof caves in on them. They survive, but barely. It was a terrible accident. Or was it? 

Saralinda: “I’m a huge burden to my mother.”

Caleb: “I’m a monster.”

Kenyon: “My grandfather hates me.” 

Antoine: “My mother has already tried to kill me twice.” 

Evangeline: “I’ll be worth 40 million dollars on my birthday. Then, I fill out the papers to give it all to the Upper East Side Cat Society. Not a penny to my stepmother. Unless I die first—haha.”

But their families can’t have banded together to kill them all. That’s crazy. 

Then another “accident” happens. Now they are four, and in a desperate race to escape the trap that’s squeezing shut around them. 


“The trap is sprung. The hunt is on. Don’t expect to sleep tonight. A stunning thriller told in two unforgettable voices.” -Julie Berry, Printz Honor-winning author of The Passion of Dolls

“Unpredictable and emotional.”  -USA Today

“A plot that left me breathless, and strong, memorable characters. Not many writers can do both. Nancy Werlin makes it look effortless. I could not put this book down.” -Linda Sue Park, Newbery Award-winning author of A Long Walk to Water

“Tense, vivid, lively, and heart-twisting—I could not catch my breath. What a very great pleasure this was to read. -Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author of The Song of the Lioness quartet

A gripping page-turner with a lot of twists and turns. Those fans of mystery looking for something different to read? Werlin’s latest definitely stands out. - RT Book Reviews

Although the psychology of the kids—and their parents—is a huge part of the story, it’s the nonstop action that sweeps readers along. People are on the run, bodies are piling up, and murder is in the air. Up until the last moment, it’s not clear who is going to make it out alive.  -Booklist
