Brought to you by Penguin. Former Crime Analyst Merilyn Davies brings to life a gritty, heart-stopping crime thriller that will have you utterly obsessed. 'Assured, fresh, engrossing' MEL SHERRATT 'Taut, authentic and sensitively told' CHRIS EWAN 'Compassionately, confidently and beautifully written' STEVE MOSBY 'A breath-taking, page-turning read' CLARE MACKINTOSH 'Fast-paced, authentic ... you'll be desperate to get to the bottom of the case' CRIME MONTHLY MAGAZINE When a young couple are the lead suspects for the murder of their only child, Crime Analyst Carla Brown and DS Nell Jackson are assigned to investigate. The evidence seems conclusive, but something just doesn't feel right. The case is quickly cast into doubt when the lead forensic pathologist starts receiving threatening letters - containing details only the police should know. Who's sending them? What do they want? And how did they get hold of the information? As Carla and Nell dig deeper, it soon becomes clear that this case isn't the first of its kind. They must stop at nothing to find the truth - even if it hits close to home. Readers can't stop talking about When I Lost You: 'An exciting and twisty police thriller' 'A very unusual but gripping storyline' 'I read this almost in one sitting as I was so gripped' 'A first class debut, a mix of psychological thriller meets police procedural' 'All the twists and turns kept me reading into the early hours' 'I love the two main characters - I really hope we see more of them.' 'Once I started, I couldn't put it down.'Show more
Brought to you by Penguin. 'Shelf Life is whip-smart, slyly heartbreaking, and I felt the truth of it in my bones. Franchini dissects ideas of love, dating and identity in a way that feels both ruthless and humane. I loved it.' Sophie Mackintosh, author of The Water Cure Launching an intelligent, perceptive new voice in fiction, Shelf Life is the exquisite, heart-wrenching story of a woman rebuilding herself on her own terms. Ruth is thirty years old. She works as a nurse in a care home and her fiancé has just broken up with her. The only thing she has left of him is their shopping list for the upcoming week. And so she uses that list to tell her story. Starting with six eggs, and working through spaghetti and strawberries, and apples and tea bags, Ruth discovers that her identity has been crafted from the people she serves; her patients, her friends, and, most of all, her partner of ten years. Without him, she needs to find out - with conditioner and single cream and a lot of sugar - who she is when she stands alone.Show more
