The terrifying truth about her parents and a long-ago murder is only the first in a series of shocking betrayals. Philippa quickly learns that those who delve into the secrets of the past must be on guard when long-buried horrors begin to stir.
“As a crime novel,” wrote the London Times, Innocent Bloodis “the peak of the art.” “Flawlessly crafted . . . profoundly, masterfully moving,” Cosmopolitan concurred.
