Cross Her HeartSarah Pinborough
WARNING: Will keep you up all night
From the No.1 bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes
Lisa tells lies.
Most of them are small white lies intended to make the life of her daughter, Ava, easier.
But her biggest lie of all about to be exposed.
Because Lisa is lying to everyone.
Lisa isn’t who she says she is.
Lisa isn’t even called Lisa at all.
Her real name is Charlotte Nevill and as a child she was convicted of the brutal murder of her half-brother, Daniel.
Someone out there knows the truth. They’re determined to make Lisa pay. And they won’t stop until everything she loves is destroyed.
‘Brilliantly clever and compelling, loved it!’
B A Paris, author of Behind Closed Doors
‘A pacy, twisty thriller that will hook you with its first few pages’ Stylist
‘Cross Her Heart is about three interesting women and some nasty men. To say more would reveal a powerful plot’ The Times
