Winner ofÂ the Macavity Award for Best Mystery Novel and nominated forÂ the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Original
Alex Marwoodâs new book,Â The Darkest Secret, is available now from Penguin Books
Everyone who lives at 23 Beulah Grove has a secret.Â If they didnât, they wouldnât be renting rooms in a sketchy South London building for cashâno credit check, no lease. Itâs the kind of place you end up when you youâve run out of other options. The six residents mostly keep to themselves, but one unbearably hot summer night, a terrible accident pushes them into an uneasy alliance. What they donât know is that one of them is a killer. Heâs already chosen his next victim, and heâll do anything to protect his secret.
Alex Marwoodâs debut novelÂ The Wicked GirlsÂ earned her lavish praise from the likes of Elizabeth Haynes, Laura Lippman, and Erin Kelly and received the Edgar Award. Now, Marwoodâs back with a brilliant, tightly paced thriller that will keep you up at night and make you ask yourself:Â just how well do you know your neighbors?
âTaut, assured and reminiscent of Ruth Rendell's psychological novels, Marwood's second book more than lives up to the promise shown in her splendid debut,Â The Wicked Girls.â âThe GuardianÂ
