Finnie Doyle and Paddy Lamb are leaving city life in Edinburgh behind them and moving to the little town of Simmerton. Paddy has landed a partnership in a local solicitors and Finnie's snagged a job as a church deacon. Their rented cottage is quaint; their new colleagues are charming, and they can't believe their luck.

And that's only the beginning. The deep, deep valley where Simmerton sits is unlike anywhere Finn and Paddy have been before. They are not the only ones hiding in its shadow and very soon they've lost control of the game they decided to play...
Praise for Catriona McPherson:
'An unnerving and suspenseful novel' Karin Slaughter
'Just the right mixture of spookiness and mystery' James Oswald

'A Gothic feast of a novel, this is a country house book with a difference: contemporary, punchy and disturbing, but using the tricks and twists of the best of Christie' Ann Cleeves
'Go To My Grave is both a classic 'country house mystery' and a thriller. Atmospheric, with mind-bending twists, a narrator who may or may not be reliable, and an ending that will take your breath away and leave you astonished' Louise Penny
' . . . drew me in from the very first page, and I stayed up late reading it because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. That's the definition of a good book' Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author

From Agatha-winner McPherson (Go to My Grave) comes this atmospheric standalone set in Scotland, where Edinburgh attorney Paddy Lamb gets his dream job: a partnership in a small law firm in the quaint town of Simmmerton, along with the free use of a lodge owned by his new employer, Lovatt Dudgeon. Paddy's wife, Finn, is even offered a plum job as a deacon in the local church. The dream rapidly sours as the city-bred Finn begins to hear voices and see lights moving through the dense woods surrounding their secluded new home. A full-fledged nightmare unfolds when Paddy and Finn stumble across the bloody bodies of Lovatt and his wife. With secrets of their own to hide, Paddy and Finn are in no position to alert the authorities; now they can only wait for someone else to discover the bodies. As the days creep by and the mysteries around her deepen, Finn comes to suspect the killer is the man she thought she knew best. McPherson spins a tense tale of murder and deception. Fans of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca will find much to like.
