‘GRIPS LIKE A VICE’ – Val McDermid

Twenty-one years ago, Dr Richard Carter and his wife Pamela were killed in what has become the most infamous double murder of the modern age.


Their ten year-old daughter – nicknamed the Angel of Death – spent eight years in a children’s secure unit and is living quietly under an assumed name with a family of her own.


Now, on the anniversary of the trial, a documentary team has tracked down her older sister, compelling her to break two decades of silence.


Her explosive interview sparks national headlines and journalist Brinley Booth, a childhood friend of the Carter sisters, is tasked with covering the news story.


For the first time, the three women are forced to confront what really happened that night – with devastating consequences for them all.


When I Was Ten is the highly anticipated, stay-up-all-night next book by acclaimed crime author Fiona Cummins.

‘Utterly compelling; a true just-one-more-chapter thriller’ – Clare Mackintosh
