Join Sonia Sodha and Louise Tickle to speak about her new book – Between the Lies…

When it comes to families, is anyone a reliable witness?

Cherry Magraw can never forget the date her mother and brother were killed – the night of her ninth birthday. When her father was jailed for their murders, she lost everyone she loved.

Twenty years later, Cherry is a freelance journalist investigating domestic abuse and the secret world of the family courts, when she gets a letter from her father – still in prison for the killings – which contains a startling request.

From that point on, her past becomes entangled with her work, dismantling everything Cherry thought she knew about her family tragedy and plunging her into a dangerous of game of cat and mouse. Will her history cloud her judgement about another desperate family? And how far will she go to save someone else’s children?

“This book is brilliant: gripping, powerful and one of the best thrillers I’ve ever read – I could not put it down.” Victoria Derbyshire

“A tense thriller… an effectively written, intelligent and important first novel, which also offers heart-pounding suspense.”

The Literary Review

Louise’s book will be available for sale on the night.
