A chilling psychological thriller about family - the ties that bind us and the lies that destroy us. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl.
You find your neighbour dead in his bath. Your son is with you. He sees everything. You discover your wife has been in the man's house. It seems she knew him. Now the police need to speak to you.
One night turns Alex Mercer's life upside down. He loves his family, and he wants to protect them, but there is too much he doesn't know.
He doesn't know how the cracks in his and Millicent's marriage have affected their son, Max. Or how Millicent's bracelet came to be under the neighbour's bed. He doesn't know how to be a father to Max when his own world is shattering into pieces.
Then the murder investigation begins....
"Ben McPherson has a very distinctive voice, and A Line of Blood is cleverly put together." (Val McDermid)
"A tense, touching, smartly written thriller with a very clever twist. McPherson is an impressive new voice." (Tim Lott)
"A hugely impressive debut, well written and psychologically acute; a devastating depiction of a family tearing itself apart." (Paul Johnston)
