The Brother

'Perfectly plotted, sharply sophisticated and the most original thriller I've read this year. I couldn't put it down!' Jane Isaac

Is murder in her DNA?

My mother lied to me. My family is not my own. If it wasn’t for the genealogy test, I would never have known I was the child of another woman.

Now I’m learning that I have four brothers I have never met. And one of them is a serial killer.

My brother is taunting me to play his vicious game – solving his clues before he spills more blood.

Who can I trust? How can I find and stop him before it is too late? And what if it is me he really wants?

A read-in-one-sitting, utterly nail-biting thriller that you will not be able to put down...Fans of Chris Carter and M.W. Craven will love this.

'Dark, chilling, original and compulsive, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!' A A Chaudhuri, author of The Loyal Friend
