"Erin Kelly is a seriously good writer, and this gripping novel is her best yet." --Sophie Hannah, author of" Kind of Cruel"
A stand-out author of deeply atmospheric psychological thrillers, Erin Kelly is on her way to joining the bestselling ranks of Kate Atkinson and Barbara Vine. Until now, the MacBride family has led a cozy life of upper-class privilege: good looks; tuition-free education at the prestigious private school where their father, Rowan, is headmaster; an altruistic righteousness inherited from their mother, magistrate Lydia. But when the MacBrides gather for the first time since Lydia's passing at their restored barn in the secluded countryside, the family discovers a stranger in their midst: a stranger who is convinced that Lydia was a murderer--and who has been plotting a spectacular revenge that may shatter their world forever.

About the Author

Erin Kelly is a freelance journalist and the acclaimed author of "The Poison Tree "and "The Dark Rose." She lives with her family in North London.


Erin Kelly is a seriously good writer, and this gripping novel is her best yet. I really loved it couldn't put it down! Sophie Hannah "The Burning Air" is a clever, creepy exploration of the deceit hidden even within the most apparently loving of families and the very fine line between justice and revenge. Erin Kelly is brilliant at showing the relentlessness of obsession and the evil that can be done in the name of love. Elizabeth Haynes, author of "Into the Darkest Corner" In a strong field, Kelly is among the strongest. Her formidable control of plot twist and character keep you gripped, unsure of the outcome, until the bitter end. Alex Marwood, author of "The Wicked Girls" A classic dark thriller combining suspense with gorgeous, evocative prose. . . . With writing so seductive and multiple voices that are pitch-perfect for the characters she s created, Kelly shows that she is a writer who doesn t need to keep repeating herself to stay in the game. A book that will consume the reader as fully as the bonfire set by the novel s characters. "Kirkus" Tension-filled . . . skillfully drawn characters and masterful building of suspense, which reaches a literally searing climax." "Publishers Weekly""
