Rated 0

United Kingdom, Great Britain, c 1980 to c 1990, Crime & mystery, Thriller / suspense

A mind-blowing, unputdownable serial killer thriller of a very different kind -- perfect for all fans of Mindhunter and Girl A

*THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER | NOW A RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK* 'Victoria Selman is an exciting and powerfully fresh voice' Patricia Cornwell

Twelve-year-old Sophie and her mother, Amelia-Rose, move to London from Massachusetts where they meet the charismatic Matty Melgren, who quickly becomes an intrinsic part of their lives. But as the relationship between the two adults fractures, a serial killer begins targeting young women with a striking resemblance to Amelia-Rose.

When Matty is eventually sent down for multiple murder, questions remain as to his guilt -- questions which ultimately destroy both women. Nearly twenty years later, Sophie receives a letter from Battlemouth Prison informing her Matty is dying and wants to meet. It looks like Sophie might finally get the answers she craves. But will the truth set her free -- or bury her deeper?
