Summary

"You don't deserve a sister...."

Lizzy Beresford is at home alone when she finds a chilling letter in her kitchen. Someone has been into her home - someone who wishes Lizzy harm. 

In her little country cottage, with her doting boyfriend, not far from the close-knit village, Lizzy can’t imagine who might want to hurt her. But when the threatening letters keep coming, she starts to suspect everyone around her. 

Desperate, Lizzy reaches out to her sister, Emma. They haven’t spoken in years, not since the argument that tore them apart. 

But what Emma says shocks her to the core: 

"I’ve been receiving letters too...."

From the best-selling author of The Secret Mother and The Child Next Door, this absolutely enthralling psychological thriller will keep you guessing with every heart-stopping twist. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, and The Sister, this book is for you.

Critic reviews

"Wow and wow again...a nail biting, fast-paced roller coaster ride that is packed full of so many twists and turns...jaw dropping...it's worth far more than five stars." (Nicki’s Life of Crime, 5 stars)

A Must Read

I have read everyone of Shalini Boland books - everyone to me are fantastic reading, what makes them more exciting and on the edge of my seat each time is the the Narrated Voice of Katie Villa, what a marvellous reader. I cannot wait until Shalini’s next book comes out. April I believe cannot wait. Please keep writing your books Shalini. Thankyou

A page turner !

Yet another excellent psychological thriller from this talented author. The narrator is easy to listen to and very plausible.

There was a lot of detail but slow and dull. Not a thriller. Not my favourite from this author.
