What to expect

Here are two things I know about my mother:
1. She had dark hair, like mine.
2. She wasn’t very happy at the end.

Anna has always believed that her mother, Debbie, died 30 years ago on the night she disappeared.

But when her father gets a strange note, she realises that she’s never been told the full story of what happened that night on the cliff.

Confused and upset, Anna turns to her husband Jack – but when she finds a love letter from another woman in his wallet, she realises there’s no-one left to help her, least of all her family.

And then a body is found…

PRAISE FOR ELISABETH CARPENTER:

‘A wonderfully assured debut about every parent’s darkest nightmare – expertly weaving a family’s story together with a real sense of tension and some great twists. Highly recommended.’ TM Logan, bestselling author of LIES

‘The perfect summer read. Carpenter has the rare ability to tune into the domestic sphere, amplify tension and weave suspense and drama into what others, with a less careful eye, might discard as mundane,’ SYD MOORE

‘An intense domestic thriller, twists and turns galore, and a host of family secrets. An absorbing read.’ PAUL FINCH, bestselling author of STRANGERS

‘Libby Carpenter's beautiful writing draws you in immediately. Her characterisation is superb, and she skillfully delivers a pacey, suspenseful plot. 99 Red Balloons is an intelligent, taut and compelling thriller that manages to pack a punch – and still throws you right at the end. It's perfect – I loved every word.’ SAM CARRINGTON, bestselling author of SAVING SOPHIE

‘I LOVED 99 Red Balloons. What a rollercoaster of a read! I swear, you could almost SEE the moment when everything clicked into place in my head! A brilliant, tense, pacy read.’ LISA HALL, bestselling author of BETWEEN ME AND YOU

‘This sharp, poignant domestic noir is like watching a snake slither towards its prey. You want to look away but somehow you can't stop looking. Carpenter emerges as an addictive new talent, climbing inside the characters and opening them up for the reader to devour. What a wonderful debut!’ HELEN FIELDS, author or PERFECT REMAINS

'I loved this book. It is a thoroughly satisfying page turning read, full of characterisation and pathos. The empathy I felt towards the characters is to me , for a crime novel, what makes it stand out. Very well written and the plot is seamless.’ AMANDA ROBSON, author of OBSESSION
