Product description

It's 1.15 a.m. Connie Bowskill should be asleep. Instead, she's logging on to a property website in search of a particular house: 11 Bentley Grove, Cambridge. She knows it's for sale; she saw the estate agent's board in the front garden less than six hours ago. Soon Connie is clicking on the 'Virtual Tour' button, keen to see the inside of 11 Bentley Grove and put her mind at rest once and for all. She finds herself looking at a scene from a nightmare: in the living room, in the middle of the carpet, there's a woman lying face down in a huge pool of blood. In shock, Connie wakes her husband Kit. But when Kit sits down at the computer to take a look, he sees no dead body, only a pristine beige carpet in a perfectly ordinary room ...

Review quote

'[An] assured psychological thriller of murderous domestic deceit.' Financial Times 'Hannah has a canny knack of insinuating threat into apparently benign domesticity and she does a nice line in offbeat characters' Daily Mail 'We're huge fans of Sophie Hannah's psychological thrillers ... [LASTING DAMAGE is] one of her very best. Whether crime thrillers are your usual cup of tea or not, expect a beautifully written and entirely gripping tale from beginning to end.' Heat 'An edge-of-your-seat psychological crime thriller ... The twists just keep coming. You will be kept on your toes from start to finish.' Essentials 'Hannah creates a complex plot that grafts lurid motifs of insanity on to a solid police-procedural template. Her main strength, however, is her characterisation' Irish Times Praise for Sophie Hannah : Hannah takes domestic scenarios, adds disquieting touches and turns up the suspense until you're checking under the bed for murders Independent It's a given that nothing will be as it seems in the latest psychological thriller from Sophie Hannah, who marries complex plots with crisp, conversational prose Marie Claire As Hannah sees it things are rarely clear cut and it is this moral ambivalence that makes her fiction so provocative Daily Express Hannah's latest psychological thriller combines quirky police procedural with shrewdly observed domestic deceit. Told with confidence and panache, Hannah challenges the reader to work out who the paranoiac of the piece really is. Independent
