One returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a
decade after her friend’s murder.
April Clarke-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford.
Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into
her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends—Will,
Hugh, Ryan, and Emily—during their first term. By the end of the year, April was dead.
Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of
killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put

presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old
friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she
thought she knew all have something to hide…including a murder.
