Half Broken Things

A gripping tale of psychological suspense perfect for the
readership of Minette Walters and Ruth Rendell, HALF BROKEN THINGS
is a novel that peers into the lives of three dangerously lost
people --- and the ominous haven they find when they find each

Jean is a house sitter at the end of a dreary career. Steph is nine
months pregnant and on the run. And Michael is a thief. Through a
mixture of deceit, good luck, and misfortune, these three damaged
loners have come together at a secluded country home called Walden
Manor. Now all three have found what they needed most: a new
beginning, a little kindness, a little love. Living off the manor's
riches, tending its grounds and gardens, they leave the outside
world far behind and build a happiness so long denied them. That
is, until the first unexpected visitor arrives...igniting a chain
reaction that is at once spellbinding and disastrous.

A stunning, thought-provoking crime novel of chilling moral
complexity, HALF BROKEN THINGS is a gripping, haunting exploration
of love and our need for it, of the damage done when we go long
without it, and the deeds we might be driven to in its name.
