Hidden Hours

Author(s): Sara Foster

Crime and Thriller

'An enthralling mystery that will keep readers guessing to the end.' Jane Harper, The Dry

Keeping her secret may save her family.

But telling it may save her life.

Arabella Lane, senior executive at a children's publisher, is found dead in the Thames on a frosty winter's morning after the office Christmas party. No one is sure whether she jumped or was pushed. The one person who may know the truth is the newest employee at Parker & Lane - the office temp, Eleanor.

Eleanor has travelled to London to escape the repercussions of her traumatic childhood in outback Australia. To her horror, she has no memory of the crucial hours leading up to Arabella's death - memory that will either incriminate or absolve her.

As Eleanor desperately tries to remember the events of that fateful night, her own extended family is dragged further into the dark, terrifying terrain of blame, suspicion and guilt.

Caught in a crossfire of accusations and lies, Eleanor isn't sure she can trust anyone - not even herself. As she races to uncover the truth, she realises that someone is intent on stopping her. Someone who, like Eleanor, knows just how deadly the darkest secrets can be.

Keeping her secret may save her family ...

But telling it may save her life.
