Waterstones Says

A careless mistake has gut-churningly dramatic repercussions in this artfully structured and scintillatingly suspenseful courtroom thriller from the author of the bestselling Take it Back.

Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger 2022

On an ordinary working day...
Your worst nightmare...
Is about to come true...

Leila Syed receives a call that cleaves her life in two. Her brother-in-law's voice is filled with panic. His son's nursery has called to ask where little Max is. Leila was supposed to drop Max off that morning. But she forgot. Racing to the carpark, she grasps the horror of what she has done.

What follows is an explosive, high-profile trial that will tear the family apart. But as the case progresses it becomes clear there's more to this incident than meets the eye...

A gripping, brave and tense courtroom drama, Next of Kin will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final, heart-stopping page.
