All These Perfect Strangers

'The best book I've read this year' Fiona Barton, bestselling author of The Widow
 
'Dark, compelling and deep. This is a fantastic debut' Alex Lake, bestselling author of After Anna

'This is about three deaths. Actually more, if you go back far enough. I say deaths but perhaps all of them were murders. It's a grey area. Murder, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. So let's just call them deaths and say I was involved. This story could be told a hundred different ways.'
  

A fresh start. A new home.
    
A time to make friends. A chance to hide from her past.
  
University life offers all these things to Pen.
  
But her secrets define her. And they may yet kill her...
  
‘Intrigue, betrayal and murder…deliciously dark’ T.R. Richmond, author of What She Left

‘Tense, sparse…the gripping plot challenges and subverts the notion of innocence until the very last page’ Monocle

‘Unputdownable’ Marie Claire
