9780143124528: The Burning Air

Gripping and chilling, with a killer twist, THE BURNING AIR reaffirms Erin Kelly as one of Britain's foremost psychological thriller writers.

Of course it was love for my children, love for my son, that caused me to act as I did. It was a lapse of judgement. If I could have foreseen the rippling aftershocks that followed I would have acted differently, but by the time I realised the extent of the consequences, it was too late.

The MacBrides have always gone to Far Barn in Devon for Bonfire Night, but this year everything is different. Lydia, the matriarch, is dead; Sophie, the eldest daughter, is desperately trying to repair a crumbling marriage; and Felix, the youngest of the family, has brought a girlfriend with him for the first time.

The girl, Kerry, seems odd in a way nobody can quite put their finger on - but when they leave her looking after Sophie's baby daughter, and return to find both Kerry and the baby gone, they are forced to ask themselves if they have allowed a cuckoo into their nest . . .

Review:

'A classic dark thriller combining suspense with gorgeous, evocative prose ... With writing so seductive and multiple voices that are pitch-perfect for the characters she's created, Kelly shows that she is a writer who doesn't need to keep repeating herself to stay in the game.' (Kirkus Reviews)

'An author in total command of the tensions within dysfunctional families ... Gripping all the way.' (The Times)

'Kelly's most accomplished book to date ... a gripping tale of secrets, revenge and obsession, masterfully done.' (The Guardian)

Book Description:

Compelling psychological suspense from Erin Kelly, author of THE POISON TREE and THE SICK ROSE.
