Keep Him Close (Hardback)Emily Koch (author)
- 10+ in stock
A formidable feat of domestic noir from the author of the Waterstones Thriller of the Month If I Die Before I Wake. Two mothers have both lost a son: one has been murdered, the other stands accused of murder. With its heart-rending story of grief, wonderful characterisation and unexpected plot, Keep Him Close cements Koch’s place as one of the most exciting new crime writers of our day.
One son lied, one son died.
Alice's son is dead. Indigo's son is accused of murder.
Indigo is determined to prove her beloved Kane is innocent. Searching for evidence, she is helped by a kind stranger who takes an interest in her situation. Little does she know that her new friend has her own agenda.
Alice can't tell Indigo who she really is. She wants to understand why her son was killed - and she needs to make sure that Indigo's efforts to free Kane don't put her remaining family at risk. But how long will it take for Indigo to discover her identity? And what other secrets will come out as she digs deeper?
No one knows a son like his mother. But neither Alice nor Indigo know the whole truth about their boys, and what happened between them on that fateful night.
Keep Him Close is a dark domestic drama from an award-winning writer.
