What's The Burning Air about?
The MacBride family gather in Devon for Bonfire Night as they do every year - except this year everything is different. Lydia, the head of the family is dead, and her children are all trying to come to terms with her passing while dealing with their complicated lives. Things are about to get even more complicated when youngest son Felix brings a new girlfriend to the house and a deep, dark secret from the MacBride's past is revealed.
goodtoknow says: If you were a fan of Erin Kelly's first novel, The Poison Tree, you'll love this. It's definitely her most psychological thriller yet and is the very essence of a page turner - we literally couldn't put it down.
Obviously, it wouldn't be a thriller without a twist and this one was truly a shocker - it made us turn those pages even quicker so we could see exactly how it would all be resolved. A taut, yet extremely readable novel, this is the perfect companion for a cold winter's night!
