Description of the book

’Cleverly crafted, twisty, gripping and suspenseful’ B. A. ParisOnly the killer holds the key. . .

A Sunday Times Book of the Summer

IT WAS THE CRIME THAT SHOCKED A NATION.

The Flowers were the perfect family. Until the day fifteen-year-old Joseph shot dead his parents and baby brother whilst his younger sister Eve hid. The family home became known as ‘The Red House’, the place where the walls were covered in blood.

THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD THE KILLER.

No one knows why Joseph murdered his family: the following day he crashed his car and has been in a coma for two decades. Eve’s always known he did it; she saw the crime, after all.

WHAT IF THEY WERE WRONG?

Now an adult, Eve is forced to re-examine her memories when disturbing new evidence about the case comes to light. Rumour has it that Joseph created a hidden level in his game that night, which might hold the key.

But if Joseph didn’t do it, then the killer’s still out there – and they’re coming back for the girl who escaped. . .

Reviews of The Red House

A clever book with a superb plot with both compassion and harsh reality within its twisted content. If there were 10 STARS it would deserve them. The narration was terrific and drew me into the heart of the tangled web One of the best books I've read.
