UntitledWhat they say:

I was fourteen when I fell in love with a goddess . . .

A love he’d never forget

Ex-lawyer Noah has never forgotten his first love. When, years later, he hears that she’s suspected of murder, he knows with certainty that she’s innocent. With April on life-support and the evidence pointing towards her guilt, he’s compelled to help her. But he’s also unprepared as he’s forced to confront what happened between them all those years ago.

A secret she would never reveal

April Moon had loved Noah. She never wanted to hurt him. But there was something – and someone – dark in her life which made happiness together impossible.

A family she could never forgive

Ella is a troubled teenager with her own secrets to tell. But no one will listen. What Ella knows holds the key to finding the killer. But as Noah, April and Ella’s stories converge, shocking revelations come to the surface. The truth is obvious. Or so everyone believes . . .

 

What we say – review by Nikki Mason:

Brutally bittersweet and redemptive, The Beauty at the End is a mesmerizing thriller with real heart at its core.

I’m always impressed by stories that mislead and throw you off track by only drip feeding you small titbits of information as you progress through it. This book does that spectacularly as you follow poor baffled Noah through his past and present as he tries to piece everything together: who really was April Moon, his once muse, and would she be capable of murder?

As thrilling as Noah’s story was, I found troubled teenager Ella’s story the most fascinating as she weaved her voice and colourful character through the main narrative.

Sinister yet absorbing – if you love British thrillers, you won’t want to miss this.
