'A dark and twisty read' Sunday Times bestseller NITA PROSE
Everyone watches their neighbours.
Everyone lies about their friends.
Everyone's a suspect when a local goes missing.

Elise King moves into the sleepy seaside town of Ebbing. Illness has thrown her career as a successful detective into doubt, but no matter how hard she tries to relax and recuperate, she knows that something isn't right.
Tensions are running high beneath the surface of this idyllic community: the weekenders in their fancy clothes, renovating old bungalows into luxury homes, and the locals resentful of the changes. A town divided, with the threat of violence only a heartbeat away.
This peaceful world is shattered when two teenagers end up in hospital and a local man vanishes without trace. Elise starts digging for answers, but the community closes ranks, and the truth begins to slip through her fingers. Because in a small town like this, the locals are good at keeping secrets...
Perfect for fans of Broadchurch, L.J. Ross and Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope novels.
