The next big thing in crime fiction - does what for friendships what Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train did for marriages



'Tense, terrifying' Clare Mackintosh

Nora hasn't seen Clare for ten years. Not since the day Nora walked out of her old life and never looked back.

Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare's hen party arrives. A weekend in a remote cottage - the perfect opportunity for Nora to reconnect with her best friend, to put the past behind her.

But something goes wrong.

Very wrong.

And as secrets and lies unravel, out in the dark, dark wood the past will finally catch up with Nora.

Industry Reviews
A slickly plotted, whip smart thriller - genuinely chilling and totally compulsive * Sunday Mirror, Book of the Week *
[A] chilling psychological thriller...a tense, claustrophobic marriage of secrets, tequila shots and shotguns * Sunday Express *
If the premise might be the sort that Agatha Christie would have toyed with had she been a 21st-century graduate, Ware's analysis of the power-games some women revel in - and the toxicity in the undertow of some female friendships - is more reminiscent of Sophie Hannah, Christobel Kent, or even Gillian Flynn and Harriet Lane -- Patricia Nicol * Independent *
You won't be able to put down this creepy page-turner * Closer *
Thrilling, gripping & well-written * Metro, Book of the Week *
Toxic friendships, an isolated house, a dark snowy wood... Everyone's worst nightmare, and the perfect ingredients for this tense, terrifying novel -- Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go
