Waterstones Says

Superbly smart and filled with mounting suspense, Twelve Secrets follows an acclaimed true crime journalist who must face the traumatic memories of his brother’s murder, as their hometown plays host to a fresh killing.

Ben Harper's life changed for ever the day his older brother Nick was murdered by two classmates. It was a crime that shocked the nation and catapulted Ben's family and their idyllic hometown, Haddley, into the spotlight.

Twenty years on, Ben is one of the best true crime journalists in the country and happily settled back in Haddley, thanks to the support of its close-knit community. But when a fresh murder case shines new light on his brother's death and throws suspicion on those closest to him, Ben's world is turned upside down once more.

He's about to discover that Haddley is a town full of secrets. No one is as they seem. Everyone has something to hide.

And someone will go to any length to keep the truth buried...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Fast-paced and brimming with superb characters. I couldn't put it down for a single second. Twelve stars! - LISA JEWELL

Utterly absorbing - SHARI LAPENA

Ominous at the beginning, breathless by the end ... this is excellent hardcore suspense - LEE CHILD

A pacey thriller full of twists and turns. You won't be able to put TWELVE SECRETS down until the very end. - KARIN SLAUGHTER

A fine debut - The Sunday Times (Books of the Year)

Twelve Secrets is rather special. So clever, so engrossing, a genuine 'just one more page' kind of book - M. W. CRAVEN

What a tangled web! Brilliantly weaved and then carefully unravelled for the big revelations at the end. A totally gripping read. - SUSAN LEWIS

A tightly-woven thriller that races to a conclusion I didn't see coming - NELL PATTISON

Original, unputdownable and a really great read - KATIE FFORDE

A fantastic, plot-twisting debut. Original and addictive. - CAMERON WARD

Twelve Secrets contains cliff-hangers and revelations galore. [It] is all plot, plot, plot - and, boy, what a lot it's got. - THE TIMES

Fast-paced and shocking. - Woman's Weekly

A page-turner with a final revelation that satisfies by being unguessable but retrospectively inevitable - Morning Star

Satisfyingly twisty, straight from Harlan Coben territory and surely Netflix bound - IRISH INDEPENDENT
