THE HIKE

Four hikers enter the mountains. Only two return. But is it tragedy? Or treachery?

When sisters Cat and Ginny travel with their husbands to the idyllic Swiss Alps for a hiking holiday, it’s not just a chance to take in the stunning scenery. It’s an opportunity to reconnect with each other after years of drifting apart—and patch up marriages that are straining at the seams.

As they head into the mountains, morale is high, but as the terrain turns treacherous, cracks in the relationships start to show. With worrying signs that someone might be following them, the sun begins to set and exhaustion kicks in. Suddenly, lost high on a terrifying ridge, tensions spill over—with disastrous consequences.

When only two of the four hikers make it down from the mountain, the police press them for their story—but soon become suspicious when their accounts just don’t add up.

What really happened up on that ridge? Who are the survivors? And what secrets are they trying to hide?

What people are saying about The Hike

“A deliciously dark mystery about warring sisters, their duplicitous husbands and a hike that ends in murder. With a cast of gloriously unlikeable characters, any one of them could be the murderer, and any of them could be dead. Chock full of secrets, lies, resentment and revenge, The Hike kept me guessing until the last page.” C.L. Taylor, author of The Guilty Couple

“An edge-of-your seat thriller where the sense of menace ratchets higher with every step along the hiking path. Utterly immersive with brilliant storytelling, it’s smart, scary and ingeniously moreish.” Steph Broadribb, author of Death in the Sunshine

“I devoured The Hike in a couple of days. Smart, pacy and packed full of twists that’ll keep you guessing. A really fantastic read.” Lisa Gray, author of the Jessica Shaw series
