The second novel from the acclaimed author of Kill the Father, a Richard and Judy 2017 Bookclub pick and Sunday Times bestseller, this thriller is multi-layered, complex, full of twists and turns and satisfyingly dark – one of those novels you just have to read late into the night. A high-speed train from Milan draws into the station in Rome, and an horrific discovery in one carriage rocks the city. Preliminary investigations are put in the hands of Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli. The police receive a message claiming responsibility for the act and announcing more murders to come, and they duly turn their attention to a small terrorist group of Islamic extremists. But investigator Dante Torre does not believe this angle. For him, this feels like a smokescreen concealing the actions of a killer who has a far more terrible motivation to continue. The trail leads to Berlin and Venice, where the waters of the Venetian Lagoon will turn blood red ... ‘I thoroughly enjoyed Kill The Angel which is an intelligent, pulse pounding thriller. The plotting is clever with twist upon twist, the pace relentless and the characters interesting. It also has a readable style which keeps you turning the pages. An interesting, exciting read which I have no hesitation in recommending’ Netgalley reviewer Praise for Kill the Father: 'Absolutely electrifying' Jeffery Deaver 'A thriller of the highest order. Highly recommended' Christopher Reich 'A mind-bending, stunningly original page-turner' Jonathan Kellerman ‘Absolutely electrifying’ Jeffery Deaver ‘Absorbing, disturbing, clever, bizarre, original and brutal’ The Times ‘Never loses its grip' Daily Mail 'An intelligent thriller… very entertaining' Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express '[a] fascinatingly complex thriller' i newspaper ? ‘Sandrone Dazieri’s intricate character-based thriller is undoubtedly a gripping read…a deliciously dark journey which provides a genuinely satisfying conclusion’ Crime Scene? ‘Ingenious’ John Verdon? ‘Don’t be surprised if Kill the Father becomes the next Big Thing in international crime fiction’ Booklist?

"An intriguing dark psychological thriller--truly brilliant!" --Lisa Jackson I have a gardener's inherent belief in the natural order of things. Soft?petalled flowers that go to seed. The resolute passage of the seasons. Swallows that fly thousands of miles to follow the eternal summer. Children who don't die before their parents. 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. "Unusual and haunting." --Library Journal "Suspenseful and poignant." --Publishers Weekly " "A compelling debut." --Woman and Home "A star in the making." --The Daily Mail
