Waterstones Says

Based on a single brilliant conceit, Hannah’s latest spine-tingling mystery enmeshes the reader in a series of ever more artful twists and red herrings right up until the final page. Structured with the skill of a true master of the form, Haven’t They Grown throbs with chilly malice and delicious malevolence.

Signed Exclusive Edition

All Beth has to do is drive her son to his Under-14s away match, watch him play, and bring him home.

Just because she knows that her former best friend lives near the football ground, that doesn't mean she has to drive past her house and try to catch a glimpse of her. Why would Beth do that, and risk dredging up painful memories? She hasn't seen Flora Braid for twelve years.

But she can't resist. She parks outside Flora's house and watches from across the road as Flora and her children, Thomas and Emily, step out of the car. Except...

There's something terribly wrong.

Flora looks the same, only older - just as Beth would have expected. It's the children that are the problem. Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily Braid were five and three years old. Today, they look precisely as they did then. They are still five and three. They are Thomas and Emily without a doubt - Beth hears Flora call them by their names - but they haven't changed at all.
They are no taller, no older.

Why haven't they grown?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Hannah has always excelled at the knotty, impossible twist and Haven't They Grown is as complex and as sinister as ever. ' - The Observer

'From the impossible premise to its chilling conclusion, Haven't They Grown is a masterpiece in plotting. Hannah's writing is darkly funny and brilliantly observed - I adore her books.' - Clare Mackintosh 

'SO clever, so gripping: Hannah asks her readers an impossible question and answers it with style. I tore through Haven't They Grown. Brilliant characters and a corker of an ending. Bravo!' - Gillian McAllister
