From the author of The Missing Girl, Jenny Quintana's gripping novel, Our Dark Secret, tells the story of two girls, two deaths and two decades of silence . . . The crazy girls, they called them - or at least, Elizabeth liked to think they did. As a teenager in the late 1970s, she was clever, overweight and a perfect victim for the bullies. Then Rachel and her family arrived in town and, for Elizabeth, it was as if a light had been switched on. She was drawn to the bright and beautiful Rachel like a moth to a flame. Rachel had her own reasons for wanting Elizabeth as a friend, and although their relationship was far from equal, Elizabeth would do anything for Rachel. Then the first body was discovered. Twenty years on, Elizabeth wants nothing more than to keep the secrets of her teenage years where they belong: in the past. But another body has been found, and she can't keep running from what happened. Can she?

Emotional and gripping: Our Dark Secret confirms Jenny Quintana as the mistress of the heartbreaking thriller -- Erin Kelly, author of <i>He Said/She Said</i> and <i>Stone Mothers</i> Darkly compelling, tender characterisation - I read this in a few greedy gulps -- Jane Shemilt, author of <i>Daughter</i> and<i> Little Friends</i> Bittersweet, full of growing menace, yet poignant and full of longing . . . Fans of The Missing Girl will fall in love with this! -- Karen Hamilton, author of <i>The Perfect Girlfriend</i> Jenny Quintana is a rare talent . . . Superb plotting, razor-sharp characterisation, and a creeping sense of dread makes Our Dark Secret a novel that you won't be able to put down -- Caz Frear, author of <i>Sweet Little Lies</i> and <i>Stone Cold Heart</i> A compulsive page-turner; a beautifully written coming-of-age story; a murder mystery peopled with characters who live and breathe . . . and a brilliant read -- Fiona Cummins, author of <i>Rattle </i>and <i>The Neighbour</i> Excellent - a dark and moving mystery, woven from the tales of truly memorable characters -- Rachel Edwards, author of <i>Darling</i> Our Dark Secret has everything I look for in a novel - beautiful writing, memorable characters and a gripping mystery. Elizabeth is a wonderful creation - I worried for her, rooted for her and feared her in equal measure. Bravo Jenny! -- Emily Elgar, author of <i>If You Knew Her</i> and <i>Grace is Gone</i> Emotional and heartfelt this is a dark, atmospheric coming of age story that's beautifully written, and grips from the start. One to watch out for! -- Amanda Jennings, author of <i>In Her Wake</i> and <i>The Cliff House</i> Part coming of age story, part mystery, totally gripping! -- Jo Jakeman, author of <i>Sticks and Stones </i>and <i>Safe House</i> Crime fans will love Our Dark Secret for the unguessable murder mystery at the heart of the plot. But the book is also a beautifully nostalgic coming of age story with subtly engaging characters whose heartbreaking dilemmas turn our initial perceptions inside out. The novel is so acutely observed and involving that it has the power to transport all of us who grew up in the 1970s back to the chicken chasseur, Barry White and Purdy-haircut filled suburbia of our childhoods -- Carolyn Kirby, author of <i>The conviction of Cora Burns</i> and <i>When We Fall</i> Addictive * Woman's Weekly * The friendship of two girls bonded by secrets fizzes on a slow burning fuse that has you waiting for the big bang when the past explosively catches up * Peterborough Telegraph *
