The USA Today bestselling author of The Au Pair returns with another delicious, twisty novel&;about a grand estate with many secrets, an orphan caught in a web of lies, and a young woman playing a sinister game.

1988. Beth Soames is fourteen years old when her aunt takes her to stay at Raven Hall, a rambling manor in the isolated East Anglian fens. The Averells, the family who lives there, are warm and welcoming, and Beth becomes fast friends with their daughter, Nina.

In person, Raven Hall is even grander than she'd imagined&;even with the damage from a fire decades before&;but the walls seem to have eyes. As day turns to night, Sadie starts to feel that there&;s something off about the glamorous guests who arrive, and as the party begins, it becomes chillingly apparent their unseen host is playing games with everyone...including her.
