Book 3 of The Edge of Nowhere Series

By Elizabeth George

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

The third novel in Elizabeth George's Young Adult series. This genre-bending work combines Elizabeth's flair for crime and suspense novels with the paranormal.

Whidbey Island is ablaze.

Late summer on Whidbey Island after nine weeks of no rain and fire season has arrived . . . along with a fire starter who soon begins tormenting the residents of this peaceful Pacific Northwest idyll with fires that escalate in intensity. Becca King and her friends Jenn and Derric are with her at the county fair when the third fire starts in a shed housing animals. The shed is destroyed, some of the animals are killed, and Becca hears from the nearby forest the 'whispers' of the fire starter who has remained to watch the havoc. More fires ensue and the situation escalates until someone dies. Becca thinks she knows who's behind it all, but only with the help of her friends and the development of her own incipient psychic talents can the perpetrator be brought to justice.

'Fans of Liane Moriarty will adore Jessica Strawser' Kate MorettiEver wonder what your friends really think of you? Drinks in hand, a group of neighbourhood women gather around a fire pit to enjoy a rare child-less Saturday night. Giddy with freedom, they drink too much, share secrets they wish, perhaps, they hadn't, and enjoy getting to know each other better. The single newcomer. The imperfect mom. The new-born parents. The military wife. The almost divorcee.Come Monday Morning, one of them is gone. Everyone knows something about everyone else in the small town of Yellow Springs, but no one can make sense of the disappearance. Kristin was a sociable mother, school administrator, and doctor's wife who didn't seem all that bothered by her impending divorce. When the investigation launches, it turns up more questions than answers - with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Paul at the centre. For her closest neighbour, Clara, the incident triggers memories she thought she'd put behind her. As the town's scrutiny turns in on her, her own suspicions about what really happened that night quickly grow. Meanwhile, the neighbourhood's newest addition, Izzy, is determined not to jump to any conclusions.But across the lawns, appearances can be deceiving, and the most beautiful houses can hide the ugliest secrets. A truly gripping domestic thriller of friendship, manipulation and betrayal that fans of Desperate Housewives, The Family Next Door and Liane Moriarty's HBO hit Big Little Lies have been waiting for.***************What readers are saying 'Twisty and engrossing, this is one thriller you don't want to miss!''I was gripped and glued to the page' 'I was drawn into the story from the first page and felt like these women were MY friends' 'What a clever page-turner with some great character dynamics and a few twisties that sucked me in and kept me guessing through to the end'
