'A deceptive and riveting novel' Karin Slaughter

Your eighteen-year-old daughter goes out.
You don’t know where, but she says she will be back by 11pm.
11pm comes but she isn’t. You text her, but no reply.
Then, 2am, the front door opens and you hear her go into her bedroom.
She’s home.
You check she’s OK.
‘Yes’, and you turn over.

The next morning, your daughter is arrested for murder.
And all you can think is, where was she last night? Why was she late?
And what will you say when the police ask you where she was . . .

A Nearly Normal Family is the stunning psychological thriller from M. T. Edvardsson and asks what would you do if your child was suspected of murder, how far would you go to protect them? Do you want to know the truth? If you loved A. J. Finn’s The Woman in the Window or J. P. Delaney’s The Girl Before, you will love this.
