Stuck in a traffic jam, Nicki Clements sees a face she hoped never to see again. It's definitely him, the same police officer, stopping each car on Elmhirst Road. Keen to avoid him, Nicki does a U-turn and makes a panicky escape.

Or so she thinks. The next day, Nicki is pulled in for questioning in connection with the murder of Damon Blundy, controversial newspaper columnist and resident of Elmhirst Road.

Nicki can't answer any of the questions detectives fire at her. She has no idea why the killer used a knife in such a peculiar way, or why 'HE IS NO LESS DEAD' was painted on Blundy's study wall. And she can't explain why she avoided Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her life.

Because although Nicki is not guilty of murder, she is far from innocent . . .

Review:

Riveting . . Her best twists and solution yet (Heat)

The queen of psychological crime . . . Fiendishly clever . . . Hannah is masterly at leading the reader down the wrong path and here she excels once again. (Sunday Express)

The genius of Hannah's domestic thrillers - along with the twistiest plots known to woman - is that she creates ordinary people whose psychological quirks make them as monstrous as any serial killer. (Guardian)

The queen of the ingenious plot twist (Good Housekeeping)

Hannah has revived the apparently exhausted detective genre by inventing a new style. You could call it every-day Gothic or ordinary extremism. But whatever label you stick on her books, they stay with you because you are likely to share or at least understand the motives of the killer. (Spectator)

There is an admirable, complicated cleverness about [Hannah's] stories . . . Think Agatha Christie at her best but updated to a time of Twitter and online dating. (Independent on Sunday)

Each of Hannah's characters is incredibly psychologically developed, full of light and shade: a challenge to understand. If you want a tale to keep you on your toes, give your brain a jolt, and cause a series of heart attacks, THE TELLING ERROR is for you. Hannah proves once again that she deserves the accolade of Queen of Crime. (Stylist)

Difficult to put down. Hannah is terrific on complex, tangled, forbidden or impossible relationships that result in murder. (The Times)

An exceptional storyteller - this is exactly the sort of crime read that can lead to missed tube stops and sleepless nights. (Elle)

Like a puppeteer, she navigates her complicated and multi-dimensional characters through a plot that twists and turns like the sneakiest of snakes . . . Each of Hannah's characters is incredibly psychologically developed, full of light and shade: a challenge to understand. If you want a tale to keep you on your toes, give your brain a jolt, and cause a series of heart attacks, THE TELLING ERROR is for you. Hannah proves once again that she deserves the accolade of Queen of Crime. (Stylist)
