Tutti, a Okeham, il piccolo paese dove Tabitha è nata, e dove ha commesso l’errore di tornare, sono convinti che sia colpevole. Altrimenti, perché il cadavere di Stuart Rees sarebbe stato trovato proprio nel capanno vicino a casa sua? Tabitha è confusa, non ricorda quasi nulla di quel 21 dicembre, se non che fosse uno dei suoi «giorni neri»: un tempo terribile fuori dalle finestre e un abisso spaventoso nel cuore. Non rammenta dove sia stata, né cosa precisamente abbia fatto, né perché la polizia l’abbia trovata coperta del sangue della vittima. Più cerca di concentrarsi, di mettere a fuoco, più qualcosa le sfugge, nella ricostruzione dei fatti, qualcosa di essenziale. Contro l’unanime condanna, Tabitha vuole la verità. E sa che c’è una sola persona che può scoprirla, una sola capace di difenderla, una sola su cui contare: sé stessa.
Un thriller che trascina il lettore nei meandri della mente della protagonista e poi sui banchi del tribunale, dove si consuma il gioco feroce del «tutti contro una».
Un’indimenticabile figura di donna, insieme fortissima e fragile, che affronta a mani nude il corpo a corpo con il pregiudizio, l’omertà, la doppiezza di chi la circonda.
Named a New York Times Best Book to Give!
“This house of correction is booby-trapped with twists, the floors paved with trapdoors, quicksand churning in the garden. Enter if you dare.” –A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
“Full of unexpected turns . . . Immensely satisfying.” – The New York Times Book Review
In this heart-pounding standalone thriller from bestselling author Nicci French, a woman accused of murder attempts to solve her own case from the confines of prison—but as she unravels the truth, everything is called into question, including her own certainty that she is innocent.
Tabitha is not a murderer.
When a body is discovered in Okeham, England, Tabitha is shocked to find herself being placed in handcuffs. It must be a mistake. She’d only recently moved back to her childhood hometown, not even getting a chance to reacquaint herself with the neighbors. How could she possibly be a murder suspect?
She knows she’s not.
As Tabitha is shepherded through the system, her entire life is picked apart and scrutinized —her history of depression and medications, her decision to move back to a town she supposedly hated . . . and of course, her past relationship with the victim, her former teacher. But most unsettling, Tabitha’s own memories of that day are a complete blur.
She thinks she’s not.
From the isolation of the correctional facility, Tabitha dissects every piece of evidence, every testimony she can get her hands on, matching them against her own recollections. But as dark, long-buried memories from her childhood come to light, Tabatha begins to question if she knows what kind of person she is after all. The world is convinced she’s a killer. Tabatha needs to prove them all wrong.
But what if she’s only lying to herself?
LOUISE PENNY says the Frieda Klein novels are "fabulous."
JOSEPH FINDER says they're "in the rich vein of Kate Atkinson."
And TAMI HOAG calls them "truly unique."
Now the final book in this extraordinary series is here. And it's an ending you'll never forget.
A decade ago, psychologist Frieda Klein was sucked into the orbit of Dean Reeve -- a killer able to impersonate almost anyone, a man who can disappear without a trace, a psychopath obsessed with Frieda herself.
In the years since, Frieda has worked with -- and sometimes against -- the London police in solving their most baffling cases. But now she's in hiding, driven to isolation by Reeve. When a series of murders announces his return, Frieda must emerge from the shadows to confront her nemesis. And it's a showdown she might not survive.
This gripping cat-and-mouse thriller pits one of the most fascinating characters in contemporary fiction against an enemy like none other. Smart, sophisticated, and spellbinding, it's a novel to leave you breathless.

“Nicci French is a specialist in the kind of evil that burrows from within.” —New York Times Book Review
In this new heart-pounding standalone from the internationally bestselling author that People calls “razor sharp,” a single mother suspects her young daughter has witnessed a horrible crime when the girl draws a disturbing picture—but the deadly path to unravel the truth could cost her everything.
Maybe Tess is overprotective, but passing her daughter off to her ex and his new young wife fills her with a sense of dread. It’s not that Jason is a bad father—it just hurts to see him enjoying married life with someone else. Still, she owes it to her daughter Poppy to make this arrangement work.
But Poppy returns from the weekend tired and withdrawn. And when she shows Tess a crayon drawing—an image so simple and violent that Tess can hardly make sense of it——Poppy can only explain with the words, “He did kill her.”
Something is horribly wrong. Tess is certain Poppy saw something—or something happened to her—that she’s too young to understand. Jason insists the weekend went off without a hitch. Doctors advise that Poppy may be reacting to her parents’ separation. And as the days go on, even Poppy’s disturbing memory seems to fade. But a mother knows her daughter, and Tess is determined to discover the truth. Her search will set off an explosive tempest of dark secrets and buried crimes—and more than one life may be at stake.

E quando uno di questi si rivela davvero grave, la catena degli sbagli si trasforma in una spirale inarrestabile, fuori controllo, che inchioda Neve alle sue bugie.
E mette in pericolo non solo lei, ma le persone che le sono più care. Suo marito. I suoi amici. Sua figlia Mabel, già così fragile, così provata dalla vita. Anche se volesse, Neve non può più tornare indietro. La verità è adesso più pericolosa di una menzogna.

Un giallo ad alta tensione da una firma internazionale del thriller psicologico, con milioni di copie vendute, che ancora una volta conquista i suoi lettori con un perfetto gioco di prestigio di duplicità e suspense.
