The crash that killed him

Two years ago, Jane Norton crashed her car on a lonely road, killing her friend David and leaving her with amnesia. At first, everyone was sympathetic. Then they found Jane's note: I wish we were dead together.

A girl to blame

From that day the town turned against her. But even now Jane is filled with questions: why were they on that road? Why was she with David? Did she really want to die?

The secrets she should forget

Most of all, she must find out who has just written her an anonymous message . . .

I know what really happened. I know what you don't remember.

A gripping and emotional psychological thriller, perfect for fans of JP Delaney, Erin Kelly, Michelle Frances, TM Logan, John Marrs and BA Paris.

Review quote

Jeff Abbott is a master storyteller. Blame is a great introduction to his talents for the first-time Abbott reader. Rest assured that when you finish his latest, you'll be hooked. * Mystery People * Impossible to put down. A one-sit read that'll have readers up way past their bedtimes, Blame is Jeff Abbott's best novel so far - and a strong contender for best psychological thriller of the year. * The Real Book Spy * I've always loved Abbott's thrillers, but he knocked me sideways with this one. Fantastic! * Peterborough Evening Telegraph * A story that becomes more fascinating as it unfolds. * LA Review of Books * The unconventional plot, the constant surprises, and above all the psychological depth of the characters all make this a first-rate crime novel. * Kirkus * This story is in the hands of a true thriller master. And the payoff is glorious. * Daily Mail *
