內容簡介

媲美薇兒.麥克德米(Val McDermid)與黎安.莫瑞亞蒂(Liane Moriarty)的新人小說家作品。

「The Hidden Legacy是最好的一種神祕小說,冷酷且吸引人的故事,秘密中藏著秘密,人類的需求與薄弱的意志,在字裡行間強烈地透露著。這是一本很難讓人放下的故事,它也讓人難忘。」- Alison MacLeod (以Unexploded提名布克獎)

1966年發生在中學的恐怖犯罪,到了2008年給所有與案件相關的人一個毀滅式的結果。

Ellen Sutherland剛離了婚,帶著兩個小孩,忙於工作與生活,承受了極大的壓力。當她受邀至Cheltenham聆聽一個老婦的遺囑時,她完全不期待這趟旅行會有什麼收穫。但是當她聽完遺囑後,除了震驚,已找不出其他的詞來形容她的感受,因為這個叫做Eudora Nash的老婦,留給Ellen一個可以扭轉人生的遺產:一棟價值不斐的漂亮小屋。

問題來了,Ellen完全不認識Eudora這個人,連聽都沒聽過,遺囑引發了Ellen的好奇心,於是和友人Kate來到英格蘭西南部找尋答案。然而,對這棟小屋有興趣的,不只是Ellen與Kate兩人,Eudora的遺囑,揭開了Ellen幾乎無法想像,卻又不得不去了解的過去…。


ONCE YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T FORGET Ellen has received a life-changing inheritance. If only she knew who had left it to her ...1966. A horrifying crime at a secondary school, with devastating consequences for all involved. 2008.

A life-changing gift, if only the recipient can work out why ...Recently divorced and with two young children, Ellen Sutherland is up to her elbows in professional and personal stress. When she's invited to travel all the way to Cheltenham to hear the content of an old woman's will, she's far from convinced the journey will be worthwhile. But when she arrives, the news is astounding. Eudora Nash has left Ellen a beautiful cottage worth an amount of money that could turn her life around.

There's just one problem - Ellen has never even heard of Eudora Nash. Her curiosity piqued, Ellen and her friend Kate travel to the West Country in search of answers. But they are not the only ones interested in the cottage, and Ellen little imagines how much she has to learn about her past ...A powerful and suspenseful tale that has been compared to Val McDermid and Liane Moriarty PRAISE FOR THE HIDDEN LEGACY 'The Hidden Legacy is the best kind of mystery novel, a cool and compelling story of secrets within secrets, all delivered to the page with a powerful sense of human need and frailty. It's a story that's hard to put down - and hard to forget.' Alison MacLeod, Booker-longlisted author of Unexploded 'I was gripped from page one by GJ Minett's debut thriller.

He approaches a tough subject with remarkable skill and sensitivity. I loved it.' Fleur Smithwick, author of How To Make A Friend 'A thought provoking, subtle novel. GJ Minett explores with delicacy the aftershocks of this terrible event, not simply the media outrage at the time but the ongoing reverberations which span decades. The ending is tender and moving. I was left thinking about the crucial role played by simple human kindness in our lives; the devastation caused by its absence. Great stuff!' Jane Rusbridge, author of Rook.
