Longlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2010.
Nicci French was shortlisted for the Specsavers ITV3 Crime Thriller Bestseller Dagger 2009.
Astrid Bell finds her life spiralling out of control when two people she comes in to contact with are found murdered. The police are watching her and so too are the flatmates she lives with. Will there be a third victim with some relations to Astrid, is Astrid herself the murderer. You'll have to read and find out but you will not be disappointed by this psychological thriller that keeps you guessing until the end.
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?
