Description

'A stylish, highly original and completely addictive take on du Maurier's Rebecca. Read it!' Shari Lapena

'The perfect modern, feminist retelling' Araminta Hall

'A haunting thriller...I read straight through, breathless to the killer final pages' Sarah Pinborough

'The twist on du Maurier's classic novel Rebecca goes spinning off in imaginative new directions in contemporary America. Great fun' The Sunday Times Crime Club

An addictively suspenseful new novel set in the glamorous world of the New York Hamptons, about secrets that refuse to remain buried and consequences that cannot be escaped.

After a whirlwind romance, a young woman returns to the opulent, secluded mansion of her new fiance Max Winter - a wealthy senator and recent widower - and a life of luxury she's never known. But all is not as it appears at the Asherley estate. The house is steeped in the memory of Max's beautiful first wife Rebekah, who haunts the young woman's imagination and feeds her uncertainties, while his very alive teenage daughter Dani makes her life a living hell.

As the soon-to-be second Mrs. Winter grows more in love with Max, and more afraid of Dani, she is drawn deeper into the family's dark secrets - the kind of secrets that could kill her, too.

Inspired by the classic novel Rebecca, The Winters is a riveting story about what happens when a family's ghosts resurface and threaten to upend everything.

'A sharp exercise in psychological suspense' Guardian

'It's as beautifully written as it is (re)plotted and the updating of the characters is superb. Fabulous - and not just for Rebecca fans' Daily Mail

'This evocative thriller really draws you in' Heat

'From the brilliant first line to the shattering conclusion, The Winters will draw you in and leave you breathless' Liv Constantine, author of The Last Mrs. Parrish
