A haunting and heartbreaking psychological thriller from the international bestselling author of The Stepdaughter, "a terrific new talent" (Peter James, New York Times–bestselling author). Now living an aimless life in an inherited cottage in the English countryside, ex-lawyer Noah Calaway is haunted by the memory of the beguiling young woman who left him at the altar sixteen years earlier. Then one day he receives a troubling phone call. April, the woman he once loved, lies in a coma, the victim of an apparent overdose—and the lead suspect in a brutal murder. Deep in his bones, Noah believes that April is innocent. Then again, he also believed they would spend the rest of their lives together. While Noah searches for evidence that will clear April's name, a teenager named Ella begins to sift through the secrets of her own painful family history. The same age as April was when Noah first met her, Ella harbors a revelation that could be the key to solving the murder. As the two stories converge, there are shocking consequences when at last, the truth emerges. Or so everyone believes . . . Set in a borderland where the past casts its shadow on the present, with a time-shifting narrative that will mesmerize and surprise, The Beauty of the End is both a masterpiece of suspense and a powerful rumination on lost love. "A combination of lyrical writing and smart mystery. It's a winner." —Sandra Block, author of What Happened That Night
