Description

The gripping new novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Michele Campbell

Because murderers are never who you expect...




She was the quiet one... but is she guilty?



For twin sisters Rose and Bel, enrolling at the prestigious new boarding school should have been a fresh start. But with its sinister rituals and traditions, Odell soon brings out a deadly rivalry between the sisters.


For Sarah and husband Heath, the chance to teach at Odell seems like the best thing that ever happened to their small family - a chance to rise through the ranks and put the past behind them.


Until one dark night ends in murder.


But who's guilty and who's telling the truth? And who's been in on it all along..?



From the Sunday Times bestselling author Michele Campbell comes the breathtaking new thriller SHE WAS THE QUIET ONE.
