The thrilling new standalone novel from the bestselling author, perfect for fans of Lucy Foley and Tana French. IT WAS THE CRIME THAT SHOCKED A NATION. The Flowers were the perfect family.
Until the day fifteen-year-old Joseph shot dead his parents and baby brother whilst his younger sister Eve hid. The family home became known as 'The Red House', the place where the walls were covered in blood. THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD THE KILLER.
No one knows why Joseph murdered his family: the following day he crashed his car and has been in a coma for two decades. Eve's always known he did it; she saw the crime, after all. WHAT IF THEY WERE WRONG? But how reliable a witness is a five-year-old? Now an adult, Eve is forced to re-examine her memories when disturbing new evidence about the case comes to light.
Because if Joseph didn't do it, then the killer's still out there - and they're coming back for the girl who escaped... 'I wanted to immediately start reading again to check the very clever clues...
