Woman with a Secret by Sophie Hannah
Traffic on Elmhirst Road has come to a halt. The police are stopping cars, searching for something. Nicki Clements waits patiently, until she glimpses a face she hoped she’d never see again. It’s him—and he’s the cop checking each car. Desperate to avoid him, she makes a panicky U-turn and escapes.
But Nicki’s peculiar behavior did not go unnoticed, and now the police have summoned her for questioning. A resident of Elmhirst Road has been murdered, and the detectives begin peppering her with questions. Why was she seen fleeing the scene? What is her connection to the victim? What does she know about the highly peculiar crime scene?
One simple answer could clear her. But she can’t explain why she fled Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her.
Nicki isn’t guilty of murder. But she’s far from innocent. . . .
"A real page-turner! This book mixes psychological suspense with traditional police procedural, which will appeal to a wide variety of mystery readers."
