'A rich, intricately-woven novel of childhood crime and adult redemption. I finished it with my heart in my mouth. Highly recommended' - Louise Candlish

'Dark, creepy and ultimately compassionate, When I Was Ten is a chilling look at the consequences of a childhood gone wrong' - JP Delaney

'Pacey, dark and surprises to the bitter end. Loved it' - Fiona Barton

Twenty-one years ago, Dr Richard Carter and his wife Pamela were murdered in what has become the most infamous double murder of the modern age.

Ten-year-old Sara Carter - nicknamed the Angel of Death - spent eight years in a children's secure unit and is living quietly under an assumed name with a family of her own.

Now, on the anniversary of the trial, a documentary team has tracked down her older sister Shannon Carter, compelling her to break two decades of silence.

Her explosive interview sparks national headlines and journalist Brinley Booth, a childhood friend of the Carter sisters, is tasked with covering the news story.

For the first time, the three women are forced to confront what really happened on that blood-soaked night - with devastating consequences for them all.

When I Was Ten is a chilling page-turner by Fiona Cummins.
