“Tense, twisty, fraught with emotion and packed with secrets, The Couple at Number 9 is Claire’s best thriller yet.” (Gilly MacMillan, best-selling author of What She Knew)

The internationally best-selling author of Do Not Disturb and Just Like the Other Girls delivers a heart-pounding psychological thriller about a couple who inherit what seems to be their dream home, until they make a horrifying discovery - and the danger begins.

The victims.... 

When pregnant Saffron Cutler moves into 9 Skelton Place with boyfriend Tom and sets about renovations, the last thing she expects is builders uncovering human remains. The remains of two bodies, in fact.

The investigation....

Forensics indicate the bodies have been buried at least 30 years. Saffy has nothing to worry about - until the police launch a murder inquiry and ask to speak to the cottage’s former owner. Her grandmother, Rose.

The witness.... 

Rose is in a nursing home and Alzheimer’s means her memory is increasingly confused. She can’t help the police, but it's clear she remembers something. 

The killer.... 

As Rose’s fragmented memories resurface, and the police dig ever deeper, Saffy fears she and the cottage are being watched.

The truth....

What happened 30 years ago? Why did no one miss the victims? What part did her grandmother play? And is Saffy now in danger?
