'Chilling, addictive and had me on the edge of my seat' 5***** Reader Review
Elodie was beautiful. Elodie was smart. Elodie was troubled. Elodie is dead.
Sylvie hasn't been back to her crumbling French family home in years. Not since the death of her eldest daughter Elodie.
Every corner of the old house feels haunted by memories of her - memories she has tried to forget.
But as temperatures rise, and forest fires rage through the French countryside, a long-buried family secret is about to come to light.
Because there's something Sylvie's been hiding about what really happened to Elodie that summer.
And it could change everything.
