Every Last Fear
Every Last Fear by Alex Finlay

'Prepare yourself for twist after exciting twist. A standout novel plotted with surgical precision' KARIN SLAUGHTER

Keep your family close, because your enemies are closer.

University student Matt Pine has just received devastating news. Nearly his entire family have been found dead while holidaying in Mexico. The local police claim it was an accident, but the FBI aren't convinced – and they won't tell Matt why.

The tragedy thrusts his family into the media spotlight again. Seven years ago, Matt's older brother, Danny, was sentenced to life in prison for murdering his teenage girlfriend. Danny has always sworn he was innocent, and last year, a true crime documentary that claimed he was wrongfully convicted went viral.

Now his family's murder is overlapping with Danny's case, Matt is determined to uncover the truth behind the crime that sent his brother to prison. Even if it means putting his own life in danger, and confronting his every last fear.

Read this gripping thriller, perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter and Lisa Jewell.

'Alex Finlay knows exactly what he or she is doing and in a bravura performance has given us an absolute cracker of a crime thriller ... A large cast of characters, different points-of-view narration and a likeable and competent female FBI agent, all keep the story moving at a fair lick, with some neat revelations and gut-churning twists along the way'
