Product description

The thrilling new bestseller from acclaimed crime writer Louise Phillips.

'Intriguing and compelling ... will enthral you to the end' Liz Nugent

'Absolutely gripping ... an addictive page turner.' Patricia Gibney

Abby Jones, a young nanny from a small town outside Boston, is the last person with infant Jacob Rotterdam when he becomes seriously ill. Within a few hours, tragically, he dies, and Abby is charged with his murder.

Heather Baxter, her defense lawyer, knows the case is not as clear cut as the Assistant District Attorney claims, and with enormous media attention on the trial, the stakes couldn't be higher.

As Heather digs deeper, the shadows of her own past, from the same small town, with memories of her mother's death twenty-five years earlier, killed while ten-year-old Heather hid upstairs, begins to unravel.

Will she discover a link between Abby and what happened to her mother all those years before? And will Abby walk free?

'A gripping courtroom drama with a courageous new heroine in Heather Baxter. Pacy, tightly plotted and full of suspense. The Hiding Game was worth the wait!' Andrea Carter

'Riveting, thought provoking and compulsive.' Arlene Hunt
