Would you try and escape if your freedom meant murder?
He'll do whatever it takes to find his missing sister. But playing a killer is a very dangerous game . . .
Darren Evans was only eleven when his beloved sister Carly and four other teenage girls disappeared, sparking a huge police investigation.
Eventually, a woman confessed to their murders. But although she admitted her guilt, Olivia Duvall refused to say what had happened to those five missing girls. Or where their bodies might lie.
Ten years later, Darren's family are still no closer to the truth. Desperate to alleviate his parents' heartbreak, Darren gets a job as a cleaner in the psychiatric hospital where Olivia was committed, hoping he can make her tell him his sister's fate once and for all.

A fresh, fiendishly twisty and very different take on the serial killer thriller, with characters so utterly compelling you won't be able to put the book down. Highly recommended! -- Louise Voss
Expect the unexpected, intense from the opening page! * Best *
Knight's first novel, Wink Murder, was smart, well-written, and genuinely thrilling, and I raved about it. This is her fourth, and it is even better. She has created a terrific villain, fiendishly clever. * Daily Mail *
Eerie, smart and brutal - this is a proper chiller * Heat *
A deliciously complicated, compelling psychological thriller. A well thought out, beautifully crafted piece of crime fiction. * The Crimewarp *
Praise for THE FIRST CUT * : *
[A] suspenseful Hitchcockian tale . . . [one of the] top ten crime books to take on holiday * Telegraph *
Top notch suspense! From first page to last, Knight delivers as she plunges an ordinary married couple into a steadily growing horror of past lies, fresh betrayals and murderous revenge. * Lisa Gardner *
'It is some time since I have been so completely absorbed and taken out of myself . . . This is Ali Knight's second book and it is hard to imagine how she can beat it, but I hope to goodness that she does! * www.shotsmag.co.uk *
