You can trust your family, can’t you...?

‘An excellent debut with a sinister sting. Reveals and plot twists delivered so skilfully that you won’t know who to trust.’ Mel Sherratt

Tess Piper was fourteen when her adored twin sister Edie disappeared.

She has spent the last twenty years building a life away from her fractured family, desperate to escape the shadow of the past.

Only now she needs to confront the huge hole her sister’s disappearance left in her life, because a body has been found. The police are shining a spotlight on the Piper family. And secrets are about to surface.

After all, it’s common knowledge that more often than not, these crimes are committed by someone close to the victim. Someone they trust. Someone they know...

What really happened to Edie Piper?

** Early praise from NetGalley reviewers **

‘Olivia Isaac-Henry very skillfully leads her readers a macabre dance into the heart of a community and family where everyone has their secrets ... I would highly recommend this tightly-plotted, clever debut.’

‘Dark, twisted, creepy, atmospheric, engaging, unputdownable brilliance. Read this book in 2019. I implore you.’

‘An intense, creepy and pacy thriller.’

‘A must-read for any fan of mystery, murder, and twists that you don’t see coming!’

‘ A creepy tale that had me hooked from the opening pages and held me right up until the final paragraph.’

‘Emotional, gripping and twisty.’

‘This story peels back in layers to reveal the truth about what really happened to Edie. A gripping story that has a couple of surprises.’

How well do you really know your husband?

 

Grace Dalton is trying to put her life back together after her husband John died suddenly in a hit and run. Her perfect world is collapsing around her, the home she hoped to fill with children is huge and empty, and she’s paralysed with grief.

 

But as Grace sorts through her husband’s belongings, she realises the man she loved was lying to her. There’s a mysterious list of names hidden among his things, a secret bank account, and a shocking revelation about his family that he kept from her since the day they met.

 

Who was John Dalton?

 

As Grace tries to identify the names on the list she realises something is wrong. She’s imagining things: seeing John in the faces of strangers and finding things in an entirely different place to where she’d swear she left them.

 

Is Grace losing her grasp on reality, or is someone trying to stop her finding out the truth about her husband?

 

A gripping psychological thriller that will have you questioning everything you think you know. If you enjoyed The Wife Between Us, The Girl on the Train or Behind Closed Doors, you’ll love this book!
