Author(s): Tamar Cohen
Best friends tell you everything; about their kitchen renovation; about their little girl's new school. They tell you how he's leaving her for a younger model. Best friends don't tell lies. They don't take up residence on your couch for weeks. They don't call lawyers. They don't make you choose sides. Best friends don't keep secrets about their past. Best friends don't always stay best friends.
When close friends split, be careful whose side you take - a stunning new novel of psychological suspense from Tamar Cohen
"A chillingly real psychological drama that had me in a total reading frenzy. I absolutely loved it." -- Lisa Jewell "Darkly compelling ... a pacy story that kept me turning the pages right until the final, shocking twist. " -- Paula Daly "A brilliant and skilfully plotted depiction of the unexpected breakdown of a friendship between two couples, with one of the most chilling twists I've read in a long time. I couldn't put it down." Louise Millar, author of THE PLAYDATE "A wonderfully compelling and exciting book, a storyline that had sparks flying from every page, terrific writing and a hugely exhilerating and thrilling read. I loved it!" Louise Douglas "An inexorable drama in which the characters' prejudices and loyalties leave them unable to separate face value from reality. THE BROKEN explores manipulation, deceit, betrayal and abuse, and how loss can both shape and destroy us." -- Elizabeth Forbes, author of NEAREST THING TO CRAZY
