Lovereading view...

Bonnie Graham is in her friend's flat. She is alone, except for the dead body lying in a pool of blood. What happened? What will she do? And is any or all of it her fault? What was meant to be a summer of music, fun and love turns in to a deadly, deceitful tangle of mistrust and suspicion. Another gripping page-turner from the writing duo that is Nicci French.

If you like Nicci French you might also like to read books by Gemma O'Connor, Morag Joss and Minette Walters.

Synopsis

Complicit by Nicci French

Who is more deadly? An enemy? A friend? Or a lover? Bonnie Graham is in her friend's flat. She is alone, except for the dead body lying in a pool of blood. What happened? What will she do? And is any or all of it her fault? Bonnie is a music teacher who has spent a long, hot summer in London rehearsing with a band. It was supposed to be fun, but the tricky knots of the band's friendships unravel with each passing day. What was meant to be a summer of happiness, music and love turns deadly as lovers betray, passions turn homicidal and friendship itself becomes a crime. Someone in the band must be a killer. Is it Bonnie? And if not - who is it?
