A shocking murder rattles an exclusive London neighborhood in this “fast-paced, decadent skewering of upper middle-class motherhood” (Sarah Bonner, New York Times bestselling author) from the author of Greenwich Park.

In this whip-smart novel that “pulls out all the psychological thriller stops—and then some” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), a young nanny is found dead under mysterious circumstances. New mom, Tash, is intrigued. She has been searching for a story to launch her career as a freelance journalist. But she has also been searching for something else—new friends to help her navigate motherhood.

She sees them at her son’s new playgroup: the other mothers. A group of sleek, sophisticated women who live in a neighborhood of tree-lined avenues and stunning houses. The sort of mothers Tash would like to be. When the mothers welcome her into their circle, she discovers the kind of life she has always dreamt of—their elegant London townhouses a far cry from her cramped basement flat and endless bills. She is quickly swept up into their wealthy world via coffees, cocktails, and playdates.

But when another young woman is found dead, it’s clear there’s much more to the tight-knit community than meets the eye. The more Tash investigates, the more she’s led uncomfortably close to the other mothers. Are these women really her friends? Or is there another, more dangerous reason why she has been so quickly accepted into their exclusive world? Who, exactly, is investigating who?

Katherine Faulkner, an award-winning journalist, studied history at Cambridge. She has worked as an investigative reporter and an editor and was formerly the joint Head of News at The Times (London). She lives in London, where she grew up, with her husband and two daughters. She is the author of The Other Mothers and Greenwich Park

Reviews

"This audiobook pulls listeners in and keeps them guessing. When Sophie, a young London nanny, is found dead under suspicious circumstances, freelance journalist Tash is intrigued. A new mother, Tash is trying to be accepted by the beautiful, wealthy moms she’s surrounded by. The story is told from two alternating perspectives and presents two timelines, one before Sophie's death and one after. Tash, voiced by Louise Brealey, is depicted as intelligent and inquisitive but desperate to fit in. Richards perfectly matches Sophie's youthful naïveté and recklessness. The closer Tash gets to the truth, the more she is forced to rethink her friendships, her actions, and the consequences for all involved." Expand reviews
