Looking for a holiday read you can't put down? We're giving away free copies of this tensely-plotted psychological thriller from bestselling author Gilly Macmillan.


About the book

Zoe is a 17-year-old musical prodigy with the IQ of a genius. But just a few years ago, she was involved in a tragic incident that left three classmates dead. She served her time - a fact which Maria, her mother, is determined to keep hidden in the past.

One night, Zoe gives a recital that needs to be the performance of her life. But instead, by the end of the evening, Maria is dead.

In the aftermath, everyone - the police, family, Zoe's former solicitor, and Zoe herself - tries to piece together what happened. But as Zoe knows all too well, the truth is rarely straightforward, and sometimes the closer we are to someone, the less we are able to see.

Gilly Macmillan proves once again to be a master of the written word and is quickly becoming one of my go-to authors." –  Mary Kubica, author of The Good Girl

"A perfect prodigy has a secret her stepfather doesn't know about... Full of suspense, a real page-turner." – Netgalley review
