Hardback
A slick, smart, stylish - and shocking - thriller from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction. On a lonely farmstead, a 70-year-old woman falls down outside and, unable to move, is consumed overnight by two of her pigs. It seems like a tragic accident, except the woman was well-known photographer Sophia Bertilak - and inside her house, someone has removed all her photos from their frames, seemingly erasing her past... The first photo Sophia ever took remains her most infamous: a missing girl who was never seen again. Forensic veterinarian Cooper Allen is drafted in for the post-mortem - and slowly becomes obsessed with the victim, her family, and the crimes she brought to light decades ago. As Cooper pulls on a dark thread of deception, secrets and lies, she begins to unravel the case - as well as herself... * Praise for Sixteen Horses 'Utterly gripping, exquisitely written' THE GUARDIAN 'Unlike anything else you'll read this year, Sixteen Horses is a deeply disconcerting ride. Irresistible' VAL MCDERMID 'Totally gripping from start to finish' ALEX MICHAELIDES 'Original, beautifully written, terrifying and haunting' SOPHIE HANNAH 'Breath-taking ... This is crime writing of a striking calibre' DAILY MAIL
