She told you her secret. Now she’s dead and it’s your fault…

As the local doctor, Kate O’Leary has the respect of her community, after all she’s helped generations of those in need.
But then a teenage patient is murdered. And her blood is found in Kate’s house.
Her neighbours turn against her and rumours start to spread. Alone and under arrest, Kate turns to the one person who can help. But she knows that even an official verdict can mean nothing if those looking for revenge find you guilty.
Kate knows she’s not a killer. But if it’s not her, then who? And finding the truth might be the only way to stay alive…

Local Whispers is a gripping and twisty psychological crime thriller perfect for fans of Claire Douglas and Gillian McAllister.
