A dark and sexy thriller, delving into the downside of the social media generation

When India falls to her death from a bridge over a railway, her sister Poppy returns home to Brighton for the first time in years. Unconvinced by official explanations, Poppy begins her own investigation into India's death. But the deeper she digs, the closer she comes to uncovering deeply buried secrets. Could Matthew Temple, the boyfriend she abandoned, be involved? And what of his powerful and wealthy parents, and his twin sister, Ana? Enter the mysterious and ethereal Jenny: the girl Poppy discovers after hacking into India's laptop. What is exactly is she hiding, and what did India discover…? A twisty, dark and sexy debut thriller set in the winding lanes and underbelly of Brighton, centring around the social media world, where resentments and accusations are played out, identities made and remade, and there is no such thing as the truth. 'Sharp, confident writing, as dark and twisty as the Brighton Lanes' Peter James 'Superb up-to-the-minute thriller. Prepare to be seriously disturbed' Paul Finch 'Crackles with tension' Karen Dionne 'This chilling, claustrophobic tale set in Brighton introduces an original, fresh new voice in crime fiction' Cal Moriarty 'The writing shines from every page of this twisted tale … debuts don't come sharper than this' Ruth Dugdall 'A cracker of a debut! I couldn't put it down' Paula Daly
