A heart-in-mouth thriller that chillingly explores society's dark obsession with true crime
At thirty, Hanna has finally decided she's better off without her family. They hold her responsible for the incident that ruined their lives fourteen years ago and they've barely spoken since.
But then, whilst browsing a true crime website, she sees her family home listed as the site of a brutal murder. Number of victims: three. Date of crime: today. When the police investigate, they find no bodies, but the house is abandoned. Hanna's family have disappeared.
To find them, Hanna will have to confront what happened all those years ago.
And the person determined to make her pay for it . . .
A dark and thoroughly compulsive tale
Utterly addictive and impossible to second guess
Kept us utterly spooked and utterly hooked
Vanessa Savage hooks in her readers and keeps them dangling till the very last page
