Synopsis

Until it's Over by Nicci French

Young and athletic, London cycle courier Astrid Bell is bad luck - for other people. First Astrid's neighbour Peggy Farrell accidentally knocks her off her bike ...and not long after is found bludgeoned to death. Then a few days later, Astrid is asked to pick up a package from a wealthy woman called Ingrid de Soto, only to find the client murdered in the hall of her luxurious home.

For the police it's more than coincidence. For Astrid and her six housemates it's the beginning of a nightmare: suspicious glances, bitter accusations, fallings out and a growing fear that the worst is yet to come! Because if it's true that bad luck comes in threes - who will be the next to die?

Reviews

Praise for Nicci French and Losing You

Lose yourself in this smart nail-biter of a tale about a mother's desperate search for her missing teenage daughter. -- People

Seamless first-person account. . . . This engrossing read captures the importance of the often overlooked and underappreciated minutiae of everyday life while commanding a deeply personal reaction in readers. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) The novel's greatest strength is its cool-eyed portrait of an English village. -- The Washington Post

What gives Losing You its chief distinction . . . is its unusually emotive color and its flinty protagonist, who, like any mother, understands that no one can possibly care as much about her child as she does. Nina is the parent we'd all like to be under duress, and I find I've become nearly as protective of her as she is of her daughter. -- Salon
