Detective Anna Gwynne is called in when threatening messages are found on Kimberley’s phone from an unknown number:
Everyone will know your secrets – your weaknesses. Being different is a curse. No one will understand.
Anna and her team suspect Kimberley’s death is linked to one of her cold cases – another teenage girl who threw herself under a train one Christmas morning.
Someone made these girls jump, and Anna will stop at nothing to find them. Even if she has to confront the demons of her past; the lies she’s told about her own childhood.
And then another body is found…
What is the secret they’re all dying for?
Can Anna find out before another innocent life is lost?
An absolutely gripping thriller that will hook you from beginning to end. If you love Val McDermid, Angela Marsons and Robert Dugoni, you won’t be able to put down Before She Falls.
