The Birdcage


Author Eve Chase

The new novel from the author of The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde and Sunday Times bestseller and Richard and Judy Pick The Glass House

'Gorgeously written, atmospheric and twisty . . . I devoured it!' Claire Douglas, bestselling author of The Couple at No. 9

'Immersive, tense and ultimately redemptive, while I was reading, it held me completely in its grip' Sarah Vaughan, bestselling author of Anatomy of a Scandal


Some secrets need to be set free . . .

1999: The summer of the total solar eclipse. Three teenage half-sisters - Lauren, Kat and Flora - are staying at Rock Point, a remote Cornish house, under the neglectful eye of their artist father. They sit for his famous portrait, Girls and Birdcage. And hide a devastating secret.

2019: A winter reunion at Rock Point throws their lives into disarray. It's the first time they've been back since that summer - and they're trying to put it behind them. But someone is watching the house. Someone who recognises the girls in the painting. And won't let the past lie...

Nor the secret that lies at the heart of this family, far darker than the sisters ever knew . . .
