Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door 'A wonderfully addictive book with virtuoso plotting and characters - for anyone who loved The Girl on the Train, it's a must read' Rosamund Lupton, bestselling author of Sister 'Literary suspense at its finest' Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Baby 'Intense, electrifying...grips like a python from the first page' Daily Mail 'An intense, unpredictable page turner' Good Housekeeping 'An unusual plot is accompanied by sharp characters and a thought-provoking dénouement' Times 'Masterfully drawn characters and intricate plotting make this a stunning piece of crime fiction' Booklist 'A suspenseful, serpentine tale . . . [with a] perfectly executed final twist' Publishers Weekly 'With lovely prose, depth of character and an intelligent narrative, Macmillan lifts the level of suspense with stiletto-like precision: a tiny graze here, a shallow cut there and, eventually, a thrust into the heart. Profoundly unsettling and richly rewarding' Richmond Times 'This taut, well-written thriller explores domestic violence and family bonds ... and the conclusion is shocking and wonderfully satisfying. The story is told from multiple characters' perspectives, and is an insight into complicated relationships and the myriad reasons people choose one another. I hope Macmillan can be persuaded to write a sequel' New Zealand Women's Weekly

Karin Müller, sidelined from the murder squad in Berlin, jumps at the chance to be sent south to Halle-Neustadt, where a pair of infant twins have gone missing.

In 1916, Eamon de Valera arrived on the Irish scene and as a result, so we are told, the fairies left. Such combining of fact and folklore is the essence of this fascinating history that describes the tragedies and poverty of those years, yet brims with cultural, domestic, and political detail. Comments by contemporary writers, both famous and obscure, are seamlessly woven into the text, as are direct memories of those who lived through the events described.
