Wink Murder

Kate Forman has an enviable life: a loving family and a perfect husband, Paul. But one night she finds Paul drunk and covered in blood, mumbling about having killed something - or someone. When a young and attractive woman who works for Paul is found murdered, Kate's suspicions about what he has really done send her on an increasingly desperate search for the truth that threatens to smash her carefully constructed life. Doing the right thing should seem obvious, but as the lies multiply, the truth is not as straightforward as it seems; how well do you know the person you're married to?

Reviews of Wink Murder

'A tight-plotted, too-close-for-comfort thriller that races to the finish… Pacey and disquieting, Knight’s debut hints she may be a competitor to Sophie Hannah’s queen of suspense crown.'

Stylist, Book of the Week

'Knight's debut crackles from first page to last... she could be very good indeed.'

Daily Mail

‘A psychological drama that grips from first to last.’


‘A really enjoyable read.'

Martina Cole

‘A tightly constructed, suspenseful thriller that will have you guessing all the way to the dramatic conclusion.’


‘A tightly plotted, high-pitched psychological thriller… what bright new talent Ali Knight does so successfully, and with a welcome fresh eye… is broach the great divide between public and private space.’

Daily Mirror

'Knight’s knack with plot ensures that everything rattles along nicely in Nicci French territory.’

The Independent, Books of the Year 2011

'A fast paced whodunnit.'
