Release date: 25 October 2017
Back cover blurb: ‘Your husband didn’t kill himself.’ Five years rebuilding your life. Five words will destroy it again. Mia Hamilton lived the perfect life with her husband, university teacher Zach, and their two-year-old daughter, Freya. But everything changed when Zach committed suicide on the same night one of his students, Josie Carpenter, vanished. Five years later, and Josie is still missing but Mia has finally found some happiness with new boyfriend Will. Until one day when stranger Alison walks into her life and tells Mia that her husband didn’t kill himself. Desperate to find out what really happened to Zach, Mia is forced to put her trust in Alison. But she soon discovers that Alison has her own agenda behind exposing the details of Zach’s death. Can Mia really believe anything Alison says? Mia must decide how far she is willing to go to uncover the truth – even if she risks losing everything she loves.
When University lecturer Zach is found dead, presumed to have committed suicide, his wife Mia is devastated. Not just at the death of her husband, but also the rumours surrounding his death.
An affair with a pupil, surely the most scandalous type of marital betrayal.
Josie, the pupil is also dead, although her body wasn’t at the scene, it is presumed that Zach murdered her and dumped her body before killing himself.
Anything to avoid the harsh reality they found themselves in...
Five years on and Mia has a stable life with loving partner Will and 7 year old Freya, her daughter from her marriage to Zach.
Now a counsellor, Mia is used to those in turmoil, but nothing prepares her for the arrival of Alison Cummings on her doorstep.
Her husband Dominic also a university lecturer was a friend of Zach’s and Alison believes that she can help Mia discover the truth about her husband’s death, for Mia has never truly believed that Zach committed suicide.
Mia is right to be suspicious because in silent lies absolutely everyone has something to hide, including Mia herself.
Silent Lies is another brilliant novel from Kathryn Croft with a killer twist, and I am very much looking forward to her next.
Silent Lies is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.
