The Edgar Award-winning psychological thriller that asks the question: How well can you know anyone?
On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two eleven-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder.

For Kirsty and Amber, it’s the first time they’ve seen each other since that dark day so many years ago.
