9780062406101: A Line of Blood

A chilling psychological thriller about family – the ties that bind us, and the lies that destroy us. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl.

You find your neighbour dead in his bath.
Your son is with you. He sees everything.

You discover your wife has been in the man’s house.
It seems she knew him.

Now the police need to speak to you.

One night turns Alex Mercer’s life upside down. He loves his family and he wants to protect them, but there is too much he doesn’t know.

He doesn’t know how the cracks in his and Millicent’s marriage have affected their son, Max. Or how Millicent’s bracelet came to be under the neighbour’s bed. He doesn’t know how to be a father to Max when his own world is shattering into pieces.

Then the murder investigation begins…

Review:

‘Ben McPherson drew me into the life of an ordinary family and gave me a ringside seat to watch the fracturing of those relationships beneath the weight of a murder investigation. Gripping from the get-go, A LINE OF BLOOD will have readers wondering what they might be capable of in the face of the terrible isolation of self within a family running off the rails’ Tami Hoag #1 New York Times bestselling author of COLD COLD HEART

‘It is both an extraordinary novel and thriller, and brilliantly written’ Claire Kendal

‘McPherson displays a rare skill for creating characters with depth in a world that is splintering around them’ Daily Mail

‘Ben McPherson has a very distinctive voice, and A LINE OF BLOOD is cleverly put together’ Val McDermid

‘A tense, touching, smartly written thriller with a very clever twist. McPherson is an impressive new voice’ Tim Lott

‘A hugely impressive debut, well written and psychologically acute; a devastating depiction of a family tearing itself apart’ Paul Johnston

Book Description William Morrow Company, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 239 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Whose secrets cut deeper? Your family s. Whose secrets do you fear? Your neighbor s. Whose secrets can kill? Your own. For Alex Mercer, his wife, Millicent, and their precocious eleven-year-old son, Max, are everything--his little tribe that makes him feel all s right with the world. But when he and Max find their enigmatic next-door neighbor dead in his apartment, their lives are suddenly and irrevocably changed. The police begin an extremely methodical investigation, and Alex becomes increasingly impatient for them to finish. After all, it was so clearly a suicide. As new information is uncovered, troubling questions arise--questions that begin to throw suspicion on Alex, Millicent, and even Max. Each of them has secrets it seems. And each has something to hide. With the walls of their perfect little world closing in on them day after day, husband, wife, and son must decide how far they ll go to protect themselves--and their family--from investigators carefully watching their every move . . . waiting for one of them to make a mistake. A Line of Blood explores what it means to be a family--the ties that bind us, and the lies that can destroy us if we re not careful. Highly provocative, intensely twisty and suspenseful, this novel will have you wondering if one of them is guilty--or if all of them are--and will keep you on edge until its shocking final pages. You will never look at your loved ones the same way again. . . . Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062406101
