Product description

Review

"Gone Girl meets Mean Girls" (Glamour)

"Dear Daughter has three of my favorite things in a book: a smart, damaged, unstoppable narrator with a slicing sense of humor; needle-sharp writing that brings characters and atmosphere leaping off the page; and a vivid, original plot full of satisfying twists. This is an all-nighter, and the best debut mystery I've read in a long time" (Tana French)

"Dark, sharp and witty" (Emma Hunt & Claire Frost Sun)

"A really gutsy, clever, energetic read, often unexpected, always entertaining. I loved Janie Jenkins’s sassy voice and Elizabeth Little’s too. In the world of crime novels, Dear Daughter is a breath of fresh air" (Kate Atkinson)

"With a narrator so unreliable you suffer from constant seasickness, and the same fizzy sense of the media tracking the case that gave Gone Girl such edge, this is the thriller of the summer… This is so damn good that it’s worth going on holiday with someone you hate, just so you can ignore them all week" (Alexandra Heminsley The Debrief)

"The real pleasure of this novel is its main character. As narrator, Janie is razor sharp, amoral and fizzing with coal-black wisecracks… A very modern and very funny take on a murder mystery" (Deidre O'Brien Sunday Mirror)

"Every year a few books stand out. This is one of them" (Sun)

"With a compelling cast of superbly drawn characters, a serpentine plot and crackling dialogue laced with stark, pungent asides, Dear Daughter defies you to put it down" (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail)

"This crime fiction début is the real deal. Unreliable narrator? Check. Plot twists? Yup. Razor-sharp writing? That, too... A thrilling, gripping read" (Glamour)

"A clever, witty thriller you’ll want to gobble up in one go" (Good Housekeeping)

Book Description

THE book of the summer. From the publishers of The Never List comes a brilliantly sharp, clever and hugely enjoyable thriller. You might fight with your mother, Janie Jenkins might have killed hers.
