When disgraced journalist Jen Hunter witnesses a horrific murder-suicide on Hampstead Heath one February alongside four strangers, she is compelled to find out what really happened that day. They all saw Daniel kill his girlfriend, Vicky - but can they trust their own memories?

Jen's best friend, Bex, is worried about her. She knows Jen hasn't always been the most stable of women. She knows about the lies. She knows why Jen lost her job at the paper.

As the lives of the Parliament Hill witnesses begin to unravel, one thing becomes clear: there is more to what happened that day on the heath.

And Jen needs to find out the truth - even at a cost.

'An 'of-the-moment' mystery which keeps you wondering until the final page.' JANE CORRY, author of I MADE A MISTAKE

'It starts with a chilling act of murder and continues with twist after twist' CLAIRE MCGOWAN

'Five Strangers is a powerful psychological thriller disentangling what lies behind a bloody opening murder scene at one of London's most famous beauty spots. A gripping and ingenious read where nothing is ever quite as it seems, it explores the dark side of confessional journalism and how deceptive memory or even friendship can be. Like Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, Five Strangers is a rollercoaster until the very end.' TANITH CAREY

'A twisty, dark, urban thriller.' CASS GREEN

'From its gripping first chapter, reminiscent of Ian McEwan's Enduring Love, Five Strangers took me on abreathless, twisting ride. So perfectly pitched it gave me vertigo.' KATE WEINBERG, author of THE TRUANTS

'Five Strangers opens with a vicious death, then blindsides you on a twisted journey of possession and danger. I read it in one day.' RACHAEL BLOK

'Following a startlingly original opening, this tense mystery reels you in and never lets go!' ABBY DAVIES, author of MOTHER LOVES ME

'Thisnovel, with its forensic examination of the dangers of confessional journalism, is compelling and darkly addictive' GAVANNDRA HODGE, journalist and author ofTHE CONSEQUENCES OFLOVE
