Chicken House (eB) £7.99
ISBN: 978-1909489325

Another gripping thriller, full of suspense, from Rachel Ward, author of the Numbers trilogy. Nic loves the water, loves swimming, and so is desperate to be chosen for the swimming team. However, hearing a disembodied voice, when in the water, begins a series of events which not only jeopardizes her position in the team but even endangers her life. Nic feels that her parents are not being honest with her about happenings many years earlier and so, with the help of an unexpected friend, she begins to delve into the past not expecting to find the horrific truths she uncovers there. This enthralling and powerful supernatural thriller, with hidden family secrets, revenge and serial murder, builds to a shocking and totally unexpected climax. Unputdownable!
