A Tangled Thread
by Anthea Fraser

Three separate families. Three different tales of loss. But a tangled thread binds them together . . .

Three widely separated households – one in Scotland, one in the north of England and one in the south – have known the pain of losing a loved one; losses which, over the years, have shaped the characters of those left behind. But it takes the untimely and suspicious death of Martin Petrie, a stranger from the Scottish Borders mowed down in a hit and run, to untangle the threads that will draw them together in ways they could never have imagined, with results that are far-reaching – and fatal.


"This story has many threads to it, which makes it more enjoyable to read and the ending is possibly one of the most jaw dropping endings of all times! Anthea Fraser uses a very easy flowing style and manages to keep the various strands of the book flowing and uncomplicated to follow. This is the first book I've read by her, but hopefully, not the last."

Breakaway Reviewers

“Fraser does her usual fine job of planting red herrings and subtle clues to the puzzle’s solution as her well-crafted plot builds to a surprising”

Publishers Weekly

“Once again, Fraser uses complicated domestic relationships as the basis for a good mystery served up with plenty of family angst.”

Kirkus Reviews

"This genre veteran offers a taut, moving story of love, loss, hate, and redemption that will keep readers enthralled from the first page"
