'Her best yet! Beautifully written with characters that jumped off the page and a clever mystery that kept me gripped. I loved every word' Claire Douglas, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Girls Who Disappeared

'A novel to immerse yourself in
: lush, evocative, nostalgic; gripping . . . a true treat' Sarah Vaughan, Sunday Times bestselling author of Anatomy of a Scandal

Notting Hill, London. One May evening, seventeen-year-old Maggie Parker's mother walks out of their front door and doesn't return . . .

With her little brother in tow, desperate to find her mother, Maggie is drawn into a labyrinthine world of antiques and shadowy figures, far from the grand stucco terraces. There she befriends another young person living on their wits. But can he help solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance?

Twenty-one years later, in a Parisian apartment, Maggie’s phone rings and her hard-won grown-up life shatters. While in London, the new owner of the Parker’s old Notting Hill house is excavating a basement, unaware of what might lie beneath, and the clock starts ticking on buried secrets.

Sweeping from bustling London streets, the boulevards of Paris to an old English country house, The Midnight Hour is a thrilling, richly woven story about a golden family with a hidden past – and a woman trying to turn back the hands of time before it’s too late.
