Description

When single mum Joanna hears a rumour at the school gates, she never intends to pass it on. But one casual comment leads to another and now there’s no going back....

Rumour has it that a notorious child killer is living under a new identity, in their sleepy little town of Flinstead-on-Sea. 

Sally McGowan was just 10 years old when she stabbed little Robbie Harris to death 48 years ago - no photos of her exist since her release as a young woman. 

So who is the supposedly reformed killer who now lives among them? How dangerous can one rumour become? And how far will Joanna go to protect her loved ones from harm, when she realises what it is she’s unleashed?

"A great debut with a slyly clever premise and a rollercoaster ride to the very last sentence." (Fiona Barton, best-selling author of The Widow and The Child

"An intriguing premise, a creeping sense of dread, and a twist you won't see coming! Everyone is going to be talking about The Rumour." (Shari Lapena, best-selling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House

Nice idea, not well executed

I found the characters not well developed and the plot not particularly well thought out. Good enough to listen to when you have long boring days to fill though . I didn’t give up on it so it can’t have been that bad ;-)

Excellent book

Way better than “ Girl on the Train “ , this book is excellent from beginning to end, the story is brilliant and the narration equally as good, I wish Lesley Kara had more books available for me to listen to, I am surethis will be made into a film , so read/ listen to the the book first as the book is always better than the film..
