Our Bookseller says:
The Snakes is not your typical crime fiction or psychological thriller. There’s just enough mystery and suspense to get hooked, but it’s not an action-packed novel. Instead we get to delve into the characters’ deeper selves, watching secrets and regrets unravel.
(Trigger warnings: this book features incest, child abuse, and graphic violence.)
Tragedy strikes suddenly, brutally, and in its aftermath the family is stripped back to its heart, and then its rotten core, and even Bea with all her strength and goodness can’t escape.
A chilling page-turner and impossible to put down, The Snakes is Sadie Jones at her best: breathtakingly powerful, brilliantly incisive, and utterly devastating.
