My Sister's Bones




The one person you should trust is lying to you.

'COMPELLING AND INTRIGUING, RIGHT FROM THE VERY FIRST PAGE'
Sharon Bolton, Sunday Times bestselling author of Like This, For Ever
Kate Rafter is a high-flying war reporter. She's the strong one. The one who escaped their father. Her younger sister Sally didn't. Instead, she drinks.
But when their mother dies, Kate is forced to return to the old family home. And on her very first night she is woken by a scream.
At first Kate tells herself it's just a nightmare. But then terrifying things start to happen, things she can't explain...
What secret is lurking in her mother's garden?
And what if the real danger is where you least expect it?
