ONE FAMILY, TWO HOLIDAYS, ONE DEVASTATING SECRET To new nanny Amanda, the Temple family seem to have it all: the former actress; the famous professor; their three successful grown-up children. But like any family, beneath the smiles and hugs there lurks far darker emotions.

Sixteen years earlier, little Niamh Temple died while they were on holiday in Portugal. Now, as Amanda joins the family for a reunion at their seaside villa, she begins to suspect one of them might be hiding something terrible...

And suspicion is a dangerous thing.

From Chris Brookmyre, winner of the Theakstons and McIllvanney awards for BLACK IDOW, comes a standalone psychological thriller full of twists, lies and betrayal.

Gloriously dark, deliciously twisty * Clare Mackintosh * Addictive in the best possible way - I couldn't stop reading but didn't want it to end. This is a holiday read like no other, a dark novel set in the sunniest of settings, the shadow of this beautifully crafted story will stay with me for a long time * Lisa Ballantyne *


  • Long-listed for McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime 2019 (UK)
