Blog Tour: Next of Kin – Kia Abdullah

ON AN ORDINARY WORKING DAY…

Leila Syed receives a call that cleaves her life in two. Her brother-in-law’s voice is filled with panic. His son’s nursery has called to ask where little Max is.

YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE…

Leila was supposed to drop Max off that morning. But she forgot.

Racing to the carpark, she grasps the horror of what she has done.

IS ABOUT TO COME TRUE…

What follows is an explosive, high-profile trial that will tear the family apart. But as the case progresses it becomes clear there’s more to this incident than meets the eye…

A gripping, brave and tense courtroom drama, Next of Kin will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final, heart-stopping page.

My thoughts: this really is shocking and sad – the death of a child always is. But the twists in the final third of the book are the most shocking part. Just when you think the case is closed and the details as disclosed in court, Kia Abdullah delivers some incredible new information, casting a different light over everything you’ve read so far. Very clever, very stunning.
