Obsession. Intrigue. Revenge. Whose secrets are you keeping? And why?

A woman falls to her death from a London bank’s twenty-fifth-floor roof terrace.

You're arrested for her murder.

You tell the police that you had only met the victim the previous night at your office party. She was threatening to jump down from the roof, but you had talked her down.

You've got nothing to do with this tragedy. You're clearly being framed.

So why do the police keep picking holes in your story? Even your lawyer doesn't seem to believe you.

It soon becomes obvious that you're keeping secrets.

But who are you trying to protect? And why?

Obsession. Intrigue. Revenge.

Get ready for one of the most twisty-turny novels you will read this year.

Praise For…

"The Woman on the Ledge blew me away like The Girl on the Train blew me away nearly ten years ago. Compulsive, clever and gasp out loud twisty, I absolute loved it." — Lisa Jewell, author of None of This Is True

"Wonderfully twisty, fabulously unexpected and immensely satisfying." — Alex Marwood, author of The Island of Lost Girls

"The best kind of plot-twisty structure where the writing itself becomes part of the intrigue. I devoured it!" — Sabine Durrant, author of Sun Damage

"Breathtaking storytelling. Every time you think you know what's happening you realise you're wrong. Stunning." — Jane Fallon

"A thrill-ride of a novel - dark, riveting and twisty. The Woman on the Ledge is one to devour!" — Lucy Clarke, author of One of the Girls

"A fiendishly clever revenge thriller in which absolutely nothing is what it first appears… Several masterpieces of misdirection, and a propulsive plot with twists and turns galore, this is utterly gripping from first to last. I guarantee you’ll be absolutely hooked.’" — The Guardian
