This is a fact: Ryan Summers walked into Three Rivers College and killed thirteen women, then himself.

But no one can say why.

The question is one that cries out to be answered - by Ryan's mother, Moira; by Ishbel, the mother of Abigail, the first victim; and by DI Helen Birch, put in charge of the case on her first day at her new job. But as the tabloids and the media swarm, as the families' secrets come out, as the world searches for someone to blame... the truth seems to vanish.

A stunningly moving novel from an exciting new voice in crime, All The Hidden Truths will cause you to question your assumptions about the people you love, and reconsider how the world reacts to tragedy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Raw, powerful, compassionate and deeply moving, with page-turning tension to the end. A stunning debut.' - Karen Robinson, Sunday Times Crime Club

'Gripping, heartbreaking and horrifyingly plausible. I couldn't tear myself away from this book. Claire Askew is a stunning new voice in crime fiction.' - Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said

'Raw, powerful, compassionate and deeply moving, with page-turning tension to the end. A stunning debut.' - Karen Robinson, Sunday Times Crime Club

'This is a such a clever, brave book. Askew looks unflinchingly at the unimaginable, but her writing is wrought with compassion. It's as heart-rending as it is gripping.' - Sabine Durrant, author of Lie With Me

'You'll be gripped by the unexpected truths that emerge. Compelling.' - Marie Claire

'Emotionally engrossing, morally challenging, horribly topical.' - Tammy Cohen

'When we think about Edinburgh crime our thoughts turn to Ian Rankin and Val McDermid. Claire Askew could be up there with them.' - The Bookbag

'A gripping, thought provoking and ultimately uplifting crime debut. I love that this book, which focusses on a crime against women, is itself about women and not the man that committed the crime. A story of how, when something terrible happens, you might start to pick up some of the tiny little pieces of your life and try to find a way through. The story, the characters and the city are all vivid and utterly alive and they left me feeling angry and full of adrenaline and love.' - Lucy Ayrton, author of One More Chance

'There's so much to enjoy about this compelling debut. The three different viewpoints really pulled me in to the story, and got me thinking about the nature of victimhood as well as collective social responsibility. This is a timely, relevant, and thought-provoking novel.' - Sarah Franklin, author of Shelter

'A novel so shockingly current that it seems to fictionalise the world even as it changes around us.' - Shelley Harris, author of Vigilante

'Really excellent - totally gripping... very realistic. One to look out for.' - Sophie Cameron, author of Out Of The Blue

'This novel will no doubt be a summer hit.' - North London Local Magazine

'All the Hidden Truths is a marvel... Absorbing and suspenseful, it's a thought-provoking debut novel.' - The Skinny
