In this "powerful and frightening" British thriller, two estranged sisters confront a crime that exposes the nightmares that lurk at the edges of domesticity (Irish Independent). On a picture-perfect morning in Bath, England, a teenage girl's body is found on the towpath of a canal. Police detective Zoe Benedict is convinced the department head should look beyond the usual domestic motives to solve the brutal murder case. But no one wants to hear any far-fetched ideas from the department's black sheep. Meanwhile, Zoe's sister, Sally, has started working as a housekeeper for a wealthy entrepreneur whose eccentricities are beginning to seem increasingly repugnant, and possibly dangerous. As Zoe digs into the case and Sally's suspicions grow, all signs point to one conclusion: There's something very wrong at the house on Hanging Hill. "A chiller to the very end. Hayder deals with Britain at its grittiest." -Peter Millar, The Times (London) "Mo Hayder has crafted a powerful and frightening thriller that grips the reader from page one to the blood-freezing shock of the final page. Utterly compelling." -Irish Independent "[A] superbly plotted tale [with] an end more alarming than anything that comes before." -New York Daily News
