The Couple at Number 9

Do you ever wonder about the past of your home? Do you imagine the lives led there? The joys and pains of people long forgotten? Well, Claire Douglas drops us right down into a domestic thriller set in the perfect little country home that houses the deep secrets and lies and unimaginable pains of a family’s past. Saffy and Tom have inherited a lovely cottage in the perfect little village, and they are in the midst of renovations when two bodies are discovered in the yard. The investigation leads directly back to Saffy’s Gran, whose grasp of the present and memories of the past are slowly being eaten away by dementia. What she know is locked away in her mind, but do we really want to know her secrets? This is a startling and serpentine thriller with enough twists and turns to keep you up at night.
