Abstract:

"In this riveting psychological thriller, the international bestselling author of The Bones of You weaves a compulsive story about one woman's death and the web of duplicity and fractured relationships that unravels around it ... Remember the script. Sisters look out for each other. It's been ten years since Hannah Roscoe saw her older sister, but that distance fades to nothing when she receives a call from the police saying Nina is dead. As a teenager, desperate to leave home and make her career in music, Hannah moved into Nina's cottage in the English countryside. In that secluded setting, Nina was trying to give her children the freedom that she and Hannah never knew growing up. Now Nina is gone, and Hannah is left to care for her young nephew, Abe, who's remote and moody in the wake of his loss. But worse is to come, as Nina's death, first ruled an accident, becomes a murder investigation. Hannah is drawn back into her past, forced to confront the ghosts of their unhappy childhood and the reasons she and Nina finally drifted apart. Nina's dream of creating an idyllic existence didn't quite work out for her two older children, Summer and Jude. As for Abe, Hannah suspects he's hiding something, but whom is he trying to protect? Through it all, Hannah can't shake the feeling that someone else knows all about the secrets she and Nina shared--and the ones they kept hidden, even from each other. Perhaps Nina's death is not a tragic ending after all, but the beginning of a new and twisted nightmare ..."--Jacket.
