The Inheritance

Samantha Hayes

I thought he took my secret to the grave. But the truth can’t stay buried forever…

Three months ago, my darling husband died. Now, I have no choice but to reveal the truth to our three daughters about their inheritance and our so-called ‘perfect’ lives.

Exposing my darkest secret was Ray’s parting gift. One final way to punish me from beyond the grave.

Everything I’ve ever done has been to protect my family. But as we gather at our holiday home in Scotland and I look around at their beautiful, innocent faces, I’m not sure they’ll believe that. Or that they’ll ever forgive me.

This house is filled with happy memories. It is also the perfect place to bury secrets – surrounded by nothing but miles of dense forest.

But there is nowhere left to hide.

I take a deep breath and close my eyes so I can’t see the love in theirs turn to hate.

I knew the truth about the inheritance would change everything. But in that moment, I could never have known we wouldn’t all survive it.

And now it’s far too late to run…

A totally gripping psychological thriller from an Amazon No1. bestseller that will have your head spinning and your jaw on the floor with every twist. Fans of The Housemaid, Gone Girl and The Family Upstairs won’t be able to put this down!
