Astrid Bell has known most of her housemates for years, but while they have a tangled history together—romantic pairings, one-night stands, friendships—each of them also has a past.

Astrid is on her way home one day when her neighbor accidentally knocks her off her bike. Bruised but not broken, her roommates help her home. The next day, they learn that same neighbor was beaten to death only hours after the accident. Each of them tells the police what little they know and are dismissed—until Astrid stumbles over another body. Two brutal murders in less than a week is more than just bad luck.

As the difference between friend and stranger grows harder to judge, and as the line between attraction and danger thins, the housemates—unsure if there's a killer in their midst—guard against becoming his next victim in this steamy and suspenseful thriller from internationally bestselling author Nicci French.

Reviews

Praise for Until It's Over

“Lose yourself in this smart nail-biter of a tale about a mother's desperate search for her missing teenage daughter.” —People on Losing You

“Seamless first-person account. . . . This engrossing read captures the importance of the often overlooked and underappreciated minutiae of everyday life while commanding a deeply personal reaction in readers.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Losing You

“The novel's greatest strength is its cool-eyed portrait of an English village.” —The Washington Post on Losing You

“What gives Losing You its chief distinction . . . is its unusually emotive color and its flinty protagonist, who, like any mother, understands that no one can possibly care as much about her child as she does. Nina is the parent we'd all like to be under duress, and I find I've become nearly as protective of her as she is of her daughter.” —Salon on Losing You

“Nicci French . . . know[s] exactly how to maintain the tension . . . You live through every nail-biting minute.” —The Guardian (London) on Losing You

“This latest offering is sure to keep readers furiously flipping pages through the night.” —Booklist on Losing You
