That Night

book | Jun 2021
UK & Comm → Michael Joseph (Ed. Maxine Hitchcock)

What would you do to protect your family?


During a family holiday in Italy, you get an urgent call from your sister.

There's been an accident: she hit a man with her car and he's dead.

She's overcome with terror — fearing years in a foreign jail away from her child.

She asks for your help. It wasn't her fault, not really. She'd cover for you, so will you do the same for her?

But when the police come calling, the lies start. And you each begin to doubt your trust in one another.

What really happened that night?

Who is lying to who?

Who will be the first to crack?

Albert Bonniers Forlag

From its propulsive opening to its devastating finale, That Night explores the terrible cost of family loyalty and the lines all of us might cross for those we love. Her best yet.

T M Logan

That Night was like watching a gripping, tense and claustrophobic box set! My heart was in my mouth the whole time. Her best yet!

Claire Douglas

Another unputdownable what-would-you-do thriller, rich with McAllister's trademark twists and emotional depth.

Erin Kelly

Almost unbearably tense and an utterly absorbing read.

Rosamund Lupton

Beautifully written and incredibly gripping ... it gave me genuine shivers. Masterfully done.

Beth O'Leary

So slippery, you will struggle to catch your breath. Gillian McAllister has secured her throne as the queen of the moral dilemma.

Holly Seddon

That Night is yet another triumph, intricately plotted and beautifully written, it's going to be huge.

Jill Mansell

It's a rare book that outfoxes me but That Night kept me guessing and kept me fooled. I have read hundreds of psychological thrillers and I didn't see the twist coming in this one! Clever, pacy and so gripping that my heart raced. That Night will haunt the dreams of anyone who's ever had a nightmare about killing someone.

C L Taylor

I was so lucky to read an early copy of this book and it is truly brilliant. That Night crept into my every waking thought. A claustrophic, twisty novel that will have you asking: "what would I do?" Loved it!

Lia Louis

I inhaled the whole thing in one day and I DO NOT know how she does it. What an absolute corker.
