What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

The stunning new psychological suspense from the Sunday Times bestselling author of HOW TO DISAPPEAR

What would you do to protect your family?

ANYTHING.

During a family holiday in Italy, you get an urgent call from your sister.

There’s been an accident: she hit a man with her car and he’s dead.

She’s overcome with terror – fearing years in a foreign jail away from her child.

She asks for your help. It wasn’t her fault, not really. She’d cover for you, so will you do the same for her?

But when the police come calling, the lies start. And you each begin to doubt your trust in one another.

What really happened that night?

Who is lying to who?

Who will be the first to crack?

Critics Review

  • Beautifully written and incredibly gripping, THAT NIGHT asks us a terrifying question: would you bury a body to protect your family? There is a breathless, almost claustrophobic tension to the story – it gave me genuine shivers. Gillian writes human emotion with immense skill, and the dynamic between the three siblings in this book is just masterfully done. I can’t wait to see what Gillian writes next
