Un grande thriller
I segreti più oscuri si nascondono nei luoghi più belli
«Un debutto sconvolgente e misterioso.»
Quando Rosie Anderson, una ragazza di appena diciotto anni, scompare, la cittadina idilliaca dove viveva non è più la stessa. Kate, la giardiniera del posto, è scossa e tormentata dal senso di colpa. Conosceva bene Rosie e, negli ultimi tempi, forse era arrivata a conoscerla anche meglio della madre. Rosie era bella, buona e gentile. Veniva da una famiglia amorevole e aveva tutta la vita davanti a sé. Chi avrebbe mai voluto farle del male? E perché? Kate è convinta che la polizia non stia valutando tutti gli indizi. Di sicuro qualcuno in paese sa più di quel che dice. Via via che le ricerche del colpevole vanno avanti, Kate è sempre più ossessionata dalla soluzione del mistero…
Un thriller psicologico avvincente e una storia piena di segreti oscuri, ossessione e suspense.
Tutti hanno dei segreti ma alcuni sono più pericolosi di altri
Una cittadina in stato di shock. Una famiglia lacerata. Chi nasconde la verità?

Ci sono bugie che non possono essere perdonate
Autrice del bestseller La donna silenziosa
Noah non ha mai dimenticato April, il suo primo amore. Quando, molti anni dopo, scopre che è sospettata di un omicidio, non dubita neanche un istante della sua innocenza. Ma April è in rianimazione, non può difendersi e tutte le prove sono contro di lei. Noah desidera disperatamente aiutarla, anche a costo di riaprire vecchie ferite e affrontare una volta per tutte la fine della loro relazione. Quello che non può immaginare è che April abbia sempre nascosto dei segreti. Era innamorata di lui e non aveva intenzione di ferirlo, ma qualcosa – o qualcuno – ha reso impossibile la loro felicità. Ella è una bambina trascurata dai genitori che ha come sola confidente la sua psicologa. Non sa di essere a conoscenza di un indizio che potrebbe aiutare a chiarire la posizione di April. Ma chi mai darebbe credito a una ragazzina? Quando delle rivelazioni scioccanti tornano a galla, ecco che la verità sembra ovvia. O almeno così tutti vogliono credere…
Un amore mai dimenticato.
Un segreto mai rivelato.
Una famiglia imperdonabile.

A woman’s body is discovered on a Cornish farm, battered and left for dead in a maize field. Airlifted to hospital, her life hanging in the balance, no one’s sure who she is. Three days later she comes round, but her memory is damaged. She knows her name – Evie – but no more, until she remembers another name. Angel – her three-year-old daughter.
As the police circulate Evie’s photo, someone recognizes her. Charlotte knew her years ago, at school, when another child went missing. Leah Danning, who vanished whilst in Evie’s care.
When the police search Evie’s home, there’s no sign of Angel. More disturbingly, there’s no evidence that she ever lived there, forcing the police to question whether Evie’s having some kind of breakdown.

I was fourteen when I fell in love with a goddess . . .
A love he'd never forget
Ex-lawyer Noah has never forgotten his first love. When, years later, he hears that she's suspected of murder, he knows with certainty that she's innocent. With April on life-support and the evidence pointing towards her guilt, he's compelled to help her. But he's also unprepared as he's forced to confront what happened between them all those years ago.
A secret she would never reveal
April Moon had loved Noah. She never wanted to hurt him. But there was something - and someone - dark in her life which made happiness together impossible.
A family she could never forgive
Ella is a troubled teenager with her own secrets to tell. But no one will listen. What Ella knows holds the key to finding the killer. But as Noah, April and Ella's stories converge, shocking revelations come to the surface. The truth is obvious. Or so everyone believes . . .
When Kate receives a phone call with news that Rosie Anderson is missing, she’s stunned and disturbed. Rosie is eighteen, the same age as Kate’s daughter, and a beautiful, quiet, and kind young woman. Though the locals are optimistic—girls like Rosie don’t get into real trouble—Kate’s sense of foreboding is confirmed when Rosie is found fatally beaten and stabbed.
Who would kill the perfect daughter, from the perfect family? Yet the more Kate entwines herself with the Andersons—graceful mother Jo, renowned journalist father Neal, watchful younger sister Delphine—the more she is convinced that not everything is as it seems. Anonymous notes arrive, urging Kate to unravel the tangled threads of Rosie’s life and death, though she has no idea where they will lead.
Weaving flashbacks from Rosie’s perspective into a tautly plotted narrative, The Bones of You is a gripping, haunting novel of sacrifices and lies, desperation and love.
“Suspenseful and poignant debut . . . the increasingly tense storytelling and astute observations on mother-daughter relationships will keep readers turning the pages.” —Publishers Weekly
“Has been compared to Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones . . . Indeed, Rosie’s voice offers a dynamic narrative. Her disembodied perspective, tempered with other points of view—chiefly Kate’s—adds an unusual and haunting layer to the novel.” —Library Journal
“A compelling debut.” —Woman and Home
Ein idyllisches Dorf auf dem englischen Land: Als die 18-jährige Rosie Anderson verschwindet, will zunächst niemand an ein Verbrechen glauben. Bis das Mädchen erstochen aufgefunden wird. Allerdings ist der Fall äußerst rätselhaft, denn wer sollte ein Motiv gehabt haben? Die Ermittlungen geraten schnell ins Stocken, alle Spuren verlaufen im Sand. Kate, eine Nachbarin der Familie, hat selbst eine Tochter in Rosies Alter und bezweifelt als Einzige, dass der Mord die Tat eines Fremden war. Sie versucht, den Hintergründen auf die Spur zu kommen. Als sie anonyme Drohungen erhält, wird klar, dass jemand die Wahrheit um jeden Preis vertuschen will ...
Kate is geschokt wanneer ze een telefoontje krijgt dat Rosie Anderson wordt vermist. De mooie, stille, vriendelijke Rosie is achttien jaar, even oud als Kates eigen dochter. Hoewel de dorpsbewoners ervan overtuigd zijn dat Rosie wel weer terug zal keren, raakt Kate geobsedeerd door de zaak. Ze probeert koste wat kost de geheimen te onthullen van het idyllische Engelse dorpje waar ze woont.
Tot op het bot is een verbluffende, schitterende psychologische thriller in de stijl van Gillian Flynn en Alice Sebold.
