Waterstones Says

Sinister teenage secrets threaten to burst into the open in Quintana's accomplished psychodrama.

From the author of The Missing Girl, Jenny Quintana's gripping novel, Our Dark Secret, tells the story of two girls, two deaths and two decades of silence . . .

As a teenager in the late 1970s, Elizabeth was clever, overweight and something of a loner. When Rachel and her family moved to town, though, Elizabeth was drawn to the bright and beautiful Rachel like a moth to a flame.

She would do anything for Rachel. Anything.

Then the first body was discovered.

Twenty years on, Elizabeth wants nothing more than to keep the secrets of her teenage years where they belong: in the past. But another body has been found, and she can't keep running from what happened . . .

Can she?
