Publisher's Summary

'You kept my secret. I know yours now. That makes us even.'

Paul has been led into a life of crime by his schoolyard protector, Daniel - but one night, what started as petty theft escalates fatally. Now, at 19, Paul must bear witness against his friend to avoid imprisonment.

Louisa has her own dark secrets. Having fled from them many years ago, she now spends her days steeped in history, renovating the grounds of a crumbling Elizabethan mansion. But her fragile peace is shattered when she meets Paul; he's the image of the one person she never thought she'd see again. A relationship develops between them, and Louisa starts to believe she can experience the happiness she had given up on. But it soon becomes apparent that neither of them can outrun their violent past.

    Story
    "Original tale of lost souls"

    This is the second book I have read from this author (the first was The Poison Tree - another good read) and once again she delivers a brilliant tale full of twists and fascinating characters. I particularly loved her depiction of the eighties through to the modern day. This is a story that bounces backwards and forwards but this is well signposted so is not confusing. I can't wait to read more from Erin Kelly.

    "Another stunning work"

    A brilliantly constructed novel with intrigue right to the last line. Unpredictable twists and turns by completely believable characters. A wonderfully British read.
