'The twist on du Maurier's classic novel Rebecca goes spinning off in imaginative new directions in contemporary America. Great fun' The Sunday Times Crime Club
An addictively suspenseful new novel set in the glamorous world of the New York Hamptons, about secrets that refuse to remain buried and consequences that cannot be escaped.
After a whirlwind romance, a young woman returns to the opulent, secluded mansion of her new fiance Max Winter - a wealthy senator and recent widower - and a life of luxury she's never known. But all is not as it appears at the Asherley estate. The house is steeped in the memory of Max's beautiful first wife Rebekah, who haunts the young woman's imagination and feeds her uncertainties, while his very alive teenage daughter Dani makes her life a living hell.
As the soon-to-be second Mrs. Winter grows more in love with Max, and more afraid of Dani, she is drawn deeper into the family's dark secrets - the kind of secrets that could kill her, too.
Inspired by the classic novel Rebecca, The Winters is a riveting story about what happens when a family's ghosts resurface and threaten to upend everything.
