About the Book

Keep your secrets. Tell your lies. The gripping new psychological thriller from the author of the bestselling The One Who Got Away.

An old castle ...

For more than 150 years, a grand house known as Alden Castle has stood proudly in the rolling hills of California's wine country, home to a family weighed down by secrets and debt.

A fresh body ...

When the castle is sold, billionaire developers move in, only to discover one skeleton after another - including a fresh corpse - rotting in the old family cemetery.

An unsolved mystery ...

As three generations of the well-respected Alden-Stowe family come under scrutiny, police unearth a twisted web of rivalries, alliances, deceit, and treachery.

A gold-digger wife, a demented patriarch, a daughter in the grip of first love ... Who has lied? Who will survive? And who, amidst all the horror and betrayal, is the lucky one?

Praise for The One Who Got Away:

'Overington keeps you guessing until the last' Daily Telegraph

'Guaranteed to have you reading late into the night' Australian Women's Weekly
