THE GIRL BEYOND THE GATE

One child. Two women fighting to protect her. Sometimes being right can be deadly.

Arriving at her new home in the exclusive gated community of Kensington Grove, journalist Jodie Evelyn instantly feels on edge. Though it’s beautiful, something about the community, built around a converted psychiatric hospital, unnerves her – as does her new neighbour Norah Williams and her terminally-ill teenage daughter, Lacey.
When a death rocks the community, she suspects Norah may have been involved and sets out to save Lacey from her mother. But as Jodie delves deeper into Norah’s shadowy past, she is forced to come face to face with her own, with devastating consequences.

AUTHOR

Becca Day

Becca Day lives in the middle of the woods in Surrey with her husband, daughter and cocker spaniel. She studied acting at Guildford College and went on to start her own Murder Mystery theatre troup. It was this move that inspired her love of crime fiction, and when she sold the company she threw herself head first into crime writing. Her short fiction has won several prizes and she is now working on her first full-length novel. Aside from writing, she is also an avid reader and runs Reading Parties with fellow author William Shaw.
