‘A Final Reckoning’ by Susan Moody



Published by Severn House,
18 July 2013.
ISBN: 978-0727882882

Chantal Frazer was thirteen and living with her parents in California when the shocking news of the murder of her much-loved sister Sabine changed all their lives.

Twenty three years later, Chantal sees an advertisement for the opening of Weston Lodge, a new hotel in the Cotswolds, which is the house where Sabine had been working as an au pair for the wealthy Pallisers when she was murdered.  Thinking only that she will see where her sister was killed and maybe find some answers, Chantal books herself in for a Special Introductory Weekend.

As the weekend progresses it would appear that Chantal is not the only person seeking answers to what happened that terrible night.  As Chantal questions some of the people who were around at the time, she discovers matters weren't quite as she'd been led to believe.  And soon she is questioning everything and everyone.  Is there anyone in whom she can place her trust?

The background unfolds through a series of letters sent from Sabine to Chantal in the period leading up to her death. Tense and creepy, this psychological thriller will have you on the edge of your seat as the suspense builds. And as Chantal delves deeper someone is prepared to kill to keep the truth hidden.
