One girl's dead. One's in hospital. And one has a secret.Paige, Sarah, Jess and Tallulah were best friends at school. Now they’ve begun university and are living together at college, but it’s not turning out like it’s meant to. Tallulah’s partying too hard, Jess is being secretive, Paige is embarrassing herself with an unrequited crush, and Sarah’s struggling to keep up with her wealthier friends.
One night, Sarah saves Paige from drowning in the university swimming pool. Paige can’t remember why she was there, and Sarah’s too afraid to say what she thought she saw. Then Jess’s body is found outside the college laundry.
It’s not until Sarah meets the gorgeous and charming Jonny that she can tell someone her suspicions. But what really did happen that night at the pool? And what connects Paige’s accident with Jess’s death? As Paige starts to piece together her memories, the most terrifying question becomes clear: could it be happening again?
“A great psychological thriller, the likes we generally only see in adult fiction . . . It’s the sort of book you will read in one sitting because the way the story unravels; you need to keep going to put all of the puzzle pieces together.”
“This is a gripping psychological drama, and a rather cautionary tale, that older girls are sure to enjoy. It also shows the depth of talent in author, J. C. Burke who constantly surprises with her themes, setting and genre.”
Deborah Marshall, readplus.com.au
“A stunning thriller.”
