The Night Before

The Night Before

‘A dazzling hall-of-mirrors thriller: ferociously smart, furiously paced, and – best of all – honest-to-goodness surprising. All hail Wendy Walker.’ AJ Finn

Rosie Ferro and Laura Heart are sisters, but as different as it is possible to be. One is lucky in love and has a conventional family: a husband, and a small son. The other has a troubled past she is still struggling to break free from.

When Laura disappears after going on a date with a stranger she met online, Rosie, her protector since they were young, springs into action to look for her. But as she slowly uncovers more about the situation, Rosie begins to fear that her sister might have been more of a danger than the man she went out with.

Told in duel timelines – the night of and the night before, Wendy Walker’s new novel is a riveting examination of family loyalty, obsession, and how just how far we will go for love.

Reviews

I raced through The Night Before, another page-turning cracker from Wendy Walker. You're in for a treat
BA Paris
AS TIMELY AS IT IS COMPELLING... Through twist after twist, the story takes you to deep, dark places where few thrillers dare to go.
Riley Sager
Wendy Walker proves her ingenuity with her latest hair-raising chiller. Teeming with her uncanny insight into the dark side of human nature, THE NIGHT BEFORE IS IRRESISTIBLE.
Mary Kubica
A dazzling hall-of-mirrors thriller: ferociously smart, furiously paced, and - best of all - honest-to-goodness surprising. All hail Wendy Walker.
AJ Finn
Devilishly plotted ... a twist-filled tale.
Publishers Weekly
Walker's clever misdirection paves the way to a truly chilling finale, and she has plenty of insightful things to say about the blame placed on women by society and themselves for the idiotic, careless, and sometimes downright evil things men do. Twisty and propulsive.
