Summary

Do you promise not to tell?

A daughter.
Beth has always known there was something strange about her daughter, Hannah. The lack of emotion, the disturbing behaviour, the apparent delight in hurting others...sometimes Beth is scared of her and what she could be capable of.

A son.
Luke comes from the perfect family, with the perfect parents. But one day he disappears without trace, and his girlfriend, Clara, is left desperate to discover what has happened to him.

A life built on lies.
As Clara digs into the past, she realises that no family is truly perfect and uncovers a link between Luke’s long-lost sister and a strange girl named Hannah. Now Luke’s life is in danger because of the lies once told and the secrets once kept. Can she find him before it’s too late?

Critic reviews

"We Need to Talk About Kevin meets Other People's Children. Tense, unsettling, and keeps you guessing till the very end." (Cara Hunter, author of Richard & Judy best seller Close to Home)

"I devoured this in 24 hours and couldn’t put it down. The underlying sense of menace throughout had me turning the pages faster and faster." (Cass Green, best-selling author of In a Cottage, In a Wood)

Praise for Camilla Way: "A slow-burning but well-executed tale of a toxic female friendship...both Edie and Heather are utterly believable, and Camilla Way cleverly manipulates the reader into taking sides, first one way, then the other." (Daily Mail)
