The Island - where everyone knows everyone, and secrets are impossible to keep...

'Be careful, you don't know them as well as you think. Remember - anyone can kill.'

Juliet has returned to the Isle of Wight from years abroad to visit her sick father and to be reunited with her three sisters - Cassie, a professional musician who seems to have lost her way in life, Mira, who is profoundly deaf, is married to the local vicar but their relationship is falling apart, and Rosalind, glamorous and charming but now deeply unhappy and secretive about her life.

As Juliet's father lies dying, he issues her with a warning. There is a killer on the loose, and they may be closer than she can ever imagine. He anxiously tells Juliet that he confided a family secret in son-in-law Rhys, and now regrets ever saying a word.

Days later, as the clock strikes one in the morning, a man comes out of Rhys's church, walks along the path and is run down by a car driven by an unidentified person. When the finger of suspicion points to Juliet, she realises the only way to clear her name is to uncover the secrets her family has been keeping from her for years. But with a killer on the loose, danger is getting closer all the time...

The Island is set on the Isle of Wight - insular, claustrophobic, and where secrets are hard to keep. Mary Grand's heart-stopping who-dunnits are perfect for fans of Louise Candlish, Agatha Christie and Lucy Foley.

What readers are saying about Mary Grand:

'Truly a great puzzler with a superb ending! I HIGHLY Recommend!!!'

'Wow I'm so so impressed it had me gripped start to finish and I couldn't put it down. I completed within 1 night and such a page turner'

'So many twists and turns to keep the reader guessing to the very end. An excellent read.'

'Brilliant if you love psychological thrillers like me.'

'A sinister "whodunit" that is not your typical police procedural.'
