【Product Information】

‘Beautiful writing, juicy secrets… and drumbeat suspense.’ Andrea Bartz

Six friends. One college reunion. One unsolved murder.

Ten years after graduation, Jessica Miller has planned every detail of her triumphant return to Duquette university. Everyone will see who she wants them to see – confident, beautiful, indifferent. Not the girl she was before, back when Heather Shelby’s murder fractured everything.

But not everyone is ready to move on. Someone is determined to make the guilty pay. When Jessica and her friends are reunited, they are forced to confront not only what happened that night, but the secrets they would do anything to hide.

Told in racing dual timelines, with a dark campus setting, In My Dreams I Hold A Knife is an addictive, propulsive read you won’t be able to put down.
