Summary :

Like most families they had their secrets. And hid them under a genteely respectable veneer. No onlooker would guess that prim Vera Hillyard and her beautiful, adored younger sister, Eden, were locked in a dark and bitter combat over one of those secrets. England in the fifties was not kind to women who erred, so they had to use ever means necessary to keep the truth hidden behind closed doors - even murder.

Blurbs:
  • "Compulsively readable...full of shifts and surprises...a modern novel with the Victorian virtues of a carefully devised plot unfolded for the reader with the most cunning art. Wilkie Collins would have admired it, and so would Dickens" Julian Symons, Sunday Times
  • "A brilliantly plotted novel...an author who is not afraid to walk down the mean streets of the mind and can build up an almost tangible atmosphere of menace and unease" Daily Telegraph
  • "Will linger in your memory long after you have closed the book with the contented sigh that is the ultimate tribute to a first-rate novel" Washington Post
  • "A rich, complex and beautifully crafted novel" P.D. James
