EVERYONE IS KEEPING A SECRET. ONE OF THEM IS MURDER.

The book club was her idea, of course.

It was her way into our group. A chance to get close.

I knew from the day she arrived that she couldn't be trusted.

And I was right.

Alice didn't come to the village for peace and quiet.

She came for revenge.

Praise for this book

"Intricately plotted, this gripping thriller is written with great style and has a host of wonderful characters to be loved and hated in equal measure." - Lisa Ballantyne

"Intuitive and addictive - a great debut." - Alison Bruce

"A fabulous, page-turning read! Beautifully written and I loved the humour . . . Highly recommended!" - Caroline England

"An irresistible slow descent into darkness, with twist upon twist upon twist. C.J. Cooper's page-turner debut kept on surprising me right to the end. Brava!" - Catriona McPherson
