Documentary-maker Bryony Rowe knew Sarah Boden at university. Now her killer is up for release, but Bryony has cause to think the murderer might be innocent. But after all this time, why hasn’t she stepped forward with her evidence and what are her motives for doing it now?

In pursuit of the truth, Jo unearths some long-buried secrets. Jo realizes that she’s not just fighting for justice for her sister, but that her own life is at stake too . . .

It Should Have Been Me is a pulse-racing psychological thriller from Susan Wilkins.
