'A stunningly good crime novel - tender and totally gripping' Sunday Mirror

Lex's wife is missing.

She left for work the morning of a terror attack in London, and no one's seen her since. Was Olivia among the victims or did she meet a different fate?

Addie has a secret.

That same day, her dad came home covered in blood. Addie thought he'd been hurt in the attacks, but her sister Jessie found the missing woman's purse in his room.

Jessie says she wants to help.

She takes a job as a nanny at Lex's house, looking after his baby. But she's not telling him the truth. And she's getting a little too comfortable living Olivia's life...

MEDIA REVIEWS
The July Girls is an extraordinary novel that gets under your skin from the very first page. Shocking, yet subtle, the menace drips off every page, making it an almost unbearably good read. Such an intricate, absorbing story that more than delivers on its knock-out premise (and boy, is it a knock-out!) * Caz Frear, author of Sweet Little Lies *
Fabulous. I love Phoebe Locke's last book, but this one - The July Girls - is even better. Stunningly original with a protagonist you'll love -- Jane Fallon * author of Faking Friends *
After her brilliant debut The Tall Man, Phoebe Locke has knocked it out of the park once again with The July Girls. Atmospheric and beautifully written, it really is stunningly good * Cass Green, author of In a Cottage In a Wood *
It landed in my letter box yesterday morning and by the afternoon I'd devoured it! It's a gripping read and almost impossible to put down. * Jo Jakeman, author of Sticks and Stones *
An original take on the serial thriller killer that grips and disturbs, filled with characters who will linger long after 'The End'. As a reader I'm so excited that I've discovered Phoebe Locke * Catherine Ryan Howard, author of Distress Signals *
Stayed up late last night to finish The July Girls, a beautifully written, expertly crafted thriller packed with genuine surprises. I also loved the contemporary London setting and how the book showed the coming of age of the heroine, and the city itself * Amy Heydenrych, author of Shame on You *
Loved it as much as The Tall Man. Chilling, gripping and unputdownable with a wonderful protagonist. A must-read this summer * Karen Hamilton, author of The Perfect Girlfriend *
The July Girls sucked me in immediately with its vivid descriptions of London life in the wake of the July 7 bombings, as well as with its wonderfully engaging young protagonist, Addie. One of the most atmospheric and original thrillers I've ever read, The July Girls is full of twists and turns, and memorable, realistic characters. I didn't want it to end. It's a book I'll be thinking about for a long time. I can't wait to read what Phoebe writes next * Charlotte Duckworth, author of The Rival *
The July Girls is a page-turning, atmospheric thriller about a serial killer, but at the same time a sensitively written coming of age story with a wonderful central character. * Jenny Quintana, author of The Missing Girl *
Thrilling, poignant and unpredictable, Phoebe Locke takes this serial killer chiller to a whole new level. I loved the Tall Man, The July Girls is even better. * Chris Whitaker, author of All The Wicked Girls *
