'Hypnotic . . . An uncommonly clever whodunnit' New York Times Book Review

'Deftly plotted with vivid, compelling characters' Jojo Moyes

'One of the standout books of the summer' Stylist

'In the vein of Agatha Christie herself. Startling' Irish Times

A captivating debut about obsession, rivalry and coming of age - an Observer and i Book of the Year


Jess Walker, middle child of a middle class family, has perfected the art of vanishing in plain sight. But when she arrives at a concrete university campus under flat, grey, East Anglian skies, her world flares with colour.

Drawn into a tightly-knit group of rule breakers - led by their maverick teacher, Lorna Clay - Jess begins to experiment with a new version of herself. But the dynamic between the friends begins to darken as they share secrets, lovers and finally a tragedy. Soon Jess is thrown up against the question she fears most: what is the true cost of an extraordinary life?

Like a wickedly brilliant Donna Tartt, Agatha Christie and Liane Moriarty all mixed into one -- Scarlett Curtis

In this mesmerising debut, Kate Weinberg confidently combines literary suspense and deftly executed narrative, slowly unravelling a tangled tale about first love, obsession and the boundaries of self-identity . . . A riveting read, Scotsman

This satisfying coming-of-age novel jives to a thriller-like beat. It's a debut, though you wouldn't necessarily know it from its assured tone.
