Description

Zoe is a mother, a television celebrity and a powerful career woman. Hers is a story that millions can only dream of. But when her baby dies, her guilt and grief plunge her into an inner landscape of dream and nightmare where the familiar becomes horrible, the unthinkable real. Her family find themselves powerless to help her as, one by one, they are drawn into a labyrinth at whose centre lies an unimaginable truth. "Cold In Earth" is a stark, poetic and utterly terrifying first novel.show more

Review Text

When her late, unplanned daughter is born, Zoe finds herself unexpectedly besotted. A month later when the baby dies (an assumed cot death), Zoe goes mad with grief, almost deliberately wrecking her relationship with her husband and two sons. An uncomfortable story but, as the horror grows, so does the inability to stop reading. An extraordinary first novel. (Kirkus UK)show more
