When Rachel wakes up in a strange room, the morning after a neighbour's party, she has no memory of what happened the night before. Why did her husband leave her alone at the party? Did they row?

Fans of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None will be riveted by Rader-Day's latest psychological thriller, which makes you question who you really know and trust and whether you should be afraid of the dark. -Library Journal, Starred Review A brilliant concept, brilliantly told! --Jeffery Deaver, New York Times Bestselling Author Only in the dark can she find the truth . . . Since her husband died, Eden Wallace's life has diminished down to a tiny pinprick, like a far-off star in the night sky. She doesn't work, has given up on her love of photography, and is so plagued by night terrors that she can't sleep without the lights on. Everyone, including her family, has grown weary of her grief. So when she finds paperwork in her husband's effects indicating that he reserved a week at a dark sky park, she goes. She's ready to shed her fear and return to the living, even if it means facing her paralyzing phobia of the dark. But when she arrives at the park, the guest suite she thought was a private retreat is teeming with a group of twenty-somethings, all stuck in the orbit of their old college friendships. Horrified that her get-away has been taken over, Eden decides to head home the next day. But then a scream wakes the house in the middle of the night. One of the friends has been murdered. Now everyone-including Eden-is a suspect. Everyone is keeping secrets, but only one is a murderer. As mishaps continue to befall the group, Eden must make sense of the chaos and lies to evade a ruthless killer-and she'll have to do it before dark falls...

Girl in Snow
As featured on Simon Mayo's BBC Radio 2 Book Club. `Dark and elegant' Mail on Sunday `A creepy, psychological drama' GQ `A haunting debut' Stylist Who are you when no one is watching? When beloved high school student Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched - not the boy who loved her too much, not the girl who wanted her perfect life, not the police officer assigned to investigate. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three unforgettable characters - Cameron, Jade, and Russ - must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both. Intoxicating and intense, Girl in Snow is a compelling mystery set in small-town America. By focusing on those affected by the crime, rather than the crime itself, Danya Kukafka asks - what's the difference between who people seem to be and who they really are? Winner of a 2018 Hearst Big Book Award: Good Housekeeping's Crime Book of the Year. Shortlisted for the 2018 CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger.

The Necessary Marriage
'Elegant, subtle and tender, with a sharp sting in the tale' Sunday Mirror 'A captivating novel which gets to the core of lust, love and commitment' Irish Times 'Gripping and atmospheric, this book will knock you sideways' Fiona Mitchell, author of The Maid's Room Jane is sixteen when she falls in love with her teacher. Leonard Campbell is everything she has ever wanted: handsome, intelligent and attentive. He singles Jane out, giving her novels to read and discuss over long walks and cosy dinners. It is only once married, tied down and tied down with two children in 1980s suburbia that Jane realises she might have settled too early, losing much of herself in the process. Then Marion and Andrew, a couple whose passion frequently tips into violence, move in next door, forcing Jane to confront feelings she didn't know she could have. And when Marion abandons her family, Jane steps in to help with the couple's two boys, setting in motion a series of events, all of which expose the push and pull within every relationship. As desire and loyalty are blurred, it becomes clear that nobody can escape the devastating impact of a family falling apart. The Necessary Marriage is an intense, intimate portrait of how couples come together and grow apart, and the passions that drive us to do crazy things.
