Synopsis

The Choice by Samantha King

Then: Madeleine lived for her children. She'd always believed she'd die for them, too. But on the morning of her twins' tenth birthday her love was put to the test when a killer knocked on their door and forced her to make a devastating choice: which child should live, and which should die - her son, or her daughter? Now: Madeleine stands silent on the periphery of her now fractured family, trying desperately to unravel why her world was so suddenly blown apart. But while everyday life continues around her, memories of everything leading up to that tragic day return in agonising flashes. And that's when she realises her family's life still hangs terrifyingly in the balance...

Reviews

'Wow, what a debut! A beautifully written, chilling psychological thriller. Taunt, tense and very clever with twists I didn't see coming. I absolutely loved it. An original, clever story...definitely one to watch out for in 2017!' Claire Douglas, Sunday Times bestselling author

'I raced through [The Choice] ... first-class writing! A definite contender for a top 2017 read. It is BRILLIANT! Refreshingly different, and actually quite disturbing. I loved it!' Number One bestselling author Lisa Hall

'A mother's worst nightmare unravels on each page. Gripping debut. I predict big things for it. Loved it and read it in one sitting' Carmel Harrington, Irish Times bestselling author

'A completely gripping psychological suspense that had me glued to the pages and rushing through to the end. It's a bum-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of read that you can't put down until it's done' Bestselling author Jenny Oliver

She lives with her husband and two young children, who inspired her to write The Choice, her debut novel. An English graduate and lifelong bookworm, Samantha is always fascinated to hear readers' opinions.
