'Brilliantly plotted, with a seismic twist' Rosamund LuptonHer best friend is dead and she needs to know why.

Aspiring journalist Bella is on work experience at a national newspaper when, out of the blue, she receives an anonymous letter promising her a big scoop if she travels down to Wiltshire.

All she finds is a government scientist spouting conspiracy theories in the pub. But then Bella's best friend Erin is found dead in a nearby field, her body staged in the centre of a crop circle. Bella is devastated. Is this the real reason she was lured out here?

While detective Silas Hart searches for evidence, Bella scours her own memory for clues. But it's full of blanks – the details of her university days with Erin keep slipping away. What secrets was Erin hiding? And, once they're uncovered, what will it mean for Bella?
