One For Sorrow

(The first book in the Isabel Fielding series)
A novel by

A chilling psychological thriller by the million-copy bestselling author of Silent Child.

Who really killed Maisie Earnshaw?

Within the walls of the high-security psychiatric facility, Crowmont Hospital, reside many violent offenders. To nurse Leah Smith, no matter what, all offenders are patients first and foremost. When Leah is appointed as nurse to Isabel Fielding, she is determined to remain professional despite the shocking crime Isabel allegedly committed in her past.

Years ago, six-year-old Maisie Earnshaw was found face down in a duck pond, her body mutilated. Isabel--at age fourteen, found covered in Maisie's blood--was convicted of murder.

As Leah spends time with Isabel, she comes to know her as a young woman with a sweet, gentle nature, someone she could never see as a murderer. Leah begins to suspect members of the Fielding family of framing Isabel as a young girl, and she's not the only one. True crime blogger James Gorden thinks Isabel is innocent too.

Is Leah allowing her own dark past to taint her judgement as she grows closer to her patient? Or has a young woman been unjustly robbed of her childhood?

Praise for the Isabel Fielding series:

"I can't praise this book was one of the best books I've read this year!"

"Without giving too much away the characters had me fooled! Nothing is what it seems, you need to keep reading ...just one more chapter...."

"One For Sorrow is such a fabulously dark and twisted read. I knew from the opening pages it was going to be good but by heck I didn't forsee the twists and turns as they happened. It's one of those stories that you will be constantly second-guessing and jumping at conclusions only to be totally wrong."

"This dark, twisty psychological thriller was totally riveting."

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"What an absolute page turner!! Suspenseful and terrifying, I was literally reading through my fingers at some points. If you want an unputdownable book that will give you chills, look no further." - Shalini Boland

"I loved Sarah's Silent Child. This book is every bit as moving, although an entirely different read. The characters leap off the page, the descriptions paint easy scenes in one's head as the intrigue deepens. If you're ready for the unusual, the surprising--even startling--this book is for you. Highly recommend." - John Ellsworth

"ONE FOR SORROW immediately sweeps you onto the cold, lonely moors where Crowmont hospital stands and into a world of dark, gripping intrigue. Isabel Fielding is one of the most spellbinding characters you'll ever meet in fiction, spending her days at Crowmont sketching intricate pictures of birds. Who killed little Maisie? Is psychiatric nurse Leah Smith heading into dangerous territory in her quest to discover the truth? An intense, gasp-out-loud story that will stay with you long after you read the last word!" - Anni Taylor
