A brilliant psychological thriller that’s been an instant hit with our booksellers – Helen at our Scarborough branch calls it ‘a suspenseful, almost unbearably tense read’ – The Flower Girls is fast generating a wild-fire word-of-mouth buzz. Astonishingly assured in its telling, it’s a story packed with shock-factor plotting and plenty of unexpected twists to keep the pages turning.
Three children went out to play. Only two came back.
The Flower Girls. Laurel and Primrose. One convicted of murder, the other given a new identity. Now, nineteen years later, another child has gone missing. And the Flower Girls are about to hit the headlines all over again...
