The Gifted Son
A Sydney family's picture-perfect life is upended in an unputdownable new novel from the bestselling author of The Mothers.
Lillian heard her daughter's footsteps hurry up the passage. She ran her fingers underneath her eyes, ready to greet her son. But when Kate appeared in the doorway her face was white. 'Mum,' Kate said. 'You'd better come. It's the police.'
Lillian's support is unflinching, even as her world begins to crumble. A son whose fate hangs in the balance, a teenage witness who refuses to name the one who threw the punch, and a husband who's hiding a secret that could destroy their marriage . . .
Is this the end of the Hogarth family's good luck? Or will Jamie's determination—and Lillian's love—be the making of them?
