'A deceptive and riveting novel' - Karin Slaughter

Chosen as one of the best seven thrillers of the summer by the New York Times

A Nearly Normal Family is the stunning psychological thriller from M. T. Edvardsson and asks what would you do if your child was suspected of murder, how far would you go to protect them? Do you want to know the truth? If you loved A. J. Finn's The Woman in the Window or J. P. Delaney's The Girl Before, you will love this.

Every murder case starts with a suspect.
What if the suspect is your daughter?
Would you believe her, or the evidence against her?


The Father
Believes his daughter has been framed.

The Mother
Believes she is hiding something.

The Daughter
Believes they have no idea what she's truly capable of . . .

There are three sides to the story.
And the truth will shatter this family to pieces.
