What to expect

When Jenny’s old therapist is murdered and she is implicated, she realizes that someone else out there might know her deepest, darkest secret.

Seven patients. One dark secret.

Jennifer Nielsen has her life on track. Until she gets news that her former psychiatrist, Phillip Walton, has been brutally murdered, and that she is implicated.

Philip knew her darkest secrets. And circumstances of his murder suggest that someone else out there knows them too.

Jenny needs to speak to old friends, and old enemies, from her dark years spent at Hillside Psychiatric Hospital. Because they are the only ones who know what really happened at Hillside, about the secret that Phil kept for them all, and that this is not the first murder.

Critics Review

  • Exploring all our frailties, Cracked is a perfect book. I loved it. Sensitive, poignant and tender – all delivered in the grip of a white-knuckle whodunnit. I wept unashamedly at the end and I defy anyone not to be moved

    Rachael Blok, bestselling author of The Scorched Earth
  • Kept me guessing – a pacey, unpredictable read and a great debut

    The Argument
  • A very exciting new writer

    Adam Croft, bestselling author of Closer to You
  • Creepy, dark and puts you on edge (enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up). Unsettlingly good
