THE NEW THRILLER FROM THE MASTER OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE 'He did kill. Kill and kill and kill.' Tess's number one priority has always been her three-year-old daughter Poppy. But splitting up with Poppy's father Jason means that she cannot always be there to keep her daughter safe.

When she finds a disturbing drawing, dark and menacing, among her daughter's brightly coloured paintings, Tess is convinced that Poppy has witnessed something terrible. Something that her young mind is struggling to put into words.

But no one will listen. It's only a child's drawing, isn't it?

Tess will protect Poppy, whatever the price. But when she doesn't know what, or who, she is protecting her from, how can she possibly know who to trust . . . ?

'An intense, brilliantly crafted thriller that hums with menace from start to finish' TM Logan 'What an intriguing, compelling page-turner. I ate it up in two days' Liz Nugent Praise for Nicci French:

'Confirms Nicci French as the giant of the genre' Erin Kelly 'Expertly paced, psychologically sharp, thoroughly enjoyable' Louise Candlish 'Meticulously plotted, psychologically astute' Sarah Vaughan 'A heart-wrenchingly plausible spiral into paranoia, fear and unbearable tension. Literally pulse-pounding' Christopher Brookmyre 'Totally absorbing. Such great plotting and characters, but also so human and full of insights about ordinary life and relationships. That's what always sets Nicci French's work apart - it makes the narrative feel so real' Sabine Durrant 'I love Nicci French's books, and with The Unheard they are right at the top of their game. Few crime writers can match their psychological acuity, of their ability to lead a reader through dizzying plot twists without ever losing pace. It's an absolute masterclass of crime writing' Kate Rhodes 'Utterly absorbing, brilliantly plotted, twisty and original' Rachel Abbott 'Great writing, razor-sharp plotting, and powerful characterisation. I was 100 pages in before I even drew breath, and I defy anyone to see the ending coming' Cara Hunter 'It's Nicci French perfection - which, as we all know, is the best kind of perfection. So, so gripping and brilliantly clued' Sophie Hannah 'The Unheard is elegant and beguiling, masterfully crafted, with an almost hallucinatory sense of jangling unease' C. M. Ewan 'Taut, well-paced and frighteningly familiar, I found it difficult to put down and hard to forget' Polly Phillips 'A mesmerising portrait of a child under stress, observed obsessively because every tiny trait is a possible clue to an important crime' Sunday Times 'A haunting investigation of our darkest fears' Mail on Sunday
