What would you do if you found your own name on a hit list? Seddon addresses this terrifying question in an explosive novel. One of the most exciting, brave and clever books I have ever read. After Dark is my book of the year.

“Every house needs a cat,’ he said. ‘Every single one. Anyone who disagrees is wrong.”
Gillian McAllister, Everything But The Truth

“My entire life I’d been so bloody frightened of what everybody thought of me and my failed existence and yet, when I failed spectacularly – sank so much lower, so much worse than failing a degree – I realized the truth of it: nobody cares what you think as much as you do. Not even close.”
Gillian McAllister, Anything You Do Say

“It's so easy for false thoughts to pass through the net of your mind, not being caught, and to become truths.”

“He made me somehow see that life didn't have to be experienced in a big way, and that happiness was small, really.”

And I’m so honoured to be your friend, Michelle! I loved your review. Thank you so much. If you could put it on amazon.com top that would be SO great!


Michelle Thank you for the friend request, Gillian, I'm honored. The Good Sister was such a great read and I'm eager to get my hands on all of your other books now. (the scene when Scott took Martha to his gardening land and she saw the trees he planted...I choked up at my desk hoping no one was around to witness, ha!)

Enjoy your day! 💗
