‘Devastating, deceptive and darkly funny. Classic Cannon’ Sarah Winman


Linda lives on a nice, normal street.
She has a nice, normal husband and a nice, normal life.

But Linda isn’t entirely satisfied. And then the murders start…

From the bestselling author of THE TROUBLE WITH GOATS AND SHEEP and THREE THINGS ABOUT ELSIE, this is a compelling, sinister and perceptive novel about keeping yourself to yourself.

After all, the grass isn’t always greener. Especially if you’re six feet beneath it.
