The chilling new psychological thriller from the #1 bestselling author of I Am Watching You.

It was their darkest secret. Three schoolgirls made a promise – to take the horrible truth of what they did to the grave.

Thirty years later, Beth and Sally have tried to put the trauma behind them. Though Carol has distanced herself from her former friends, the three are adamant that the truth must never come to light, even if the memory still haunts them.

But when some shocking news threatens to unearth their dark secret, Beth enlists the help of private investigator Matthew Hill to help her and Sally reconnect with estranged Carol ­– before the terrible act they committed as teenagers is revealed.

Beth wishes she could take back the vow they made.

But somebody is watching and will stop at nothing to ensure the secret stays buried. Now, with her beloved family in peril, can Beth still keep the promise?

The Promise follows Beth, Sally, and Carol, they meet at a Catholic boarding school and become best friends, the story switched between the time they spent at boarding school and the present day. With the impending school reunion looming over their heads and finding out their old boarding school grounds are going to be torn apart, it becomes clears that a secret may be about to be discovered. Something happened when the girls were just 14 years old and they each made a promise never to tell anyone, and they have been living with the secret ever since – a secret that seems to be torturing the women through their lives.

The secret was very long drawn out, that when it was revealed it almost fell flat fore me, I had an incline as to what it might entail, and I was only half right! The rest I never saw coming! This was a good psychological thriller and nice change of pace from the romance books I have been devouring of late.

    I’m dying to know what the secret is! Bummer though that the reveal sort of fell flat for you. That bugs me when the anticipation is really built up but then it’s like, “That’s it?” ‍♀️
