FOUR WOMEN. ONE FATAL PROMISE.
‘The narrative twists with ironic relish’ Sunday Times Crime Club
‘Wickedly entertaining’ Gabriel Bergmoser
‘A dark and funny page-turner’ Ayelet Gundar-Goshen, author of Liar
A serial killer is on the loose. Each victim is found tied to a chair with a baby doll glued to their hands, the word ‘mother’ carved into their forehead like a mark of Cain.

What Sheila doesn’t know is who is committing these gruesome acts of ritualistic violence, and whether she herself might be the next target.
