The million-copy bestseller that has got everyone talking.
A summer's evening in Amsterdam and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant. Over the polite scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse - the banality of work, the triviality of holidays. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Each couple has a 15 year old son; the two boys are united in their accountability for a single horrific act, caught on CCTV, an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the insulated worlds of their families. How far will each couple go to protect their child?

The million-copy bestseller that has got everyone talking.

'A brilliantly addictive novel that wraps its hands around your throat on page one and doesn't let go' -- SJ Watson

A summer's evening in Amsterdam and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant. Between mouthfuls of food and over the delicate scraping of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of politeness - the banality of work, the triviality of holidays. But the empty words hide a terrible conflict and, with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened...

Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. Together, the boys have committed a horrifying act, caught on camera, and their grainy images have been beamed into living rooms across the nation; despite a police manhunt, the boys remain unidentified - by everyone except their parents. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children and, as civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple shows just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.
