Talking to the Dead is bestselling author Helen Dunmore's fourth novel.

There's nothing closer than sisters . . .

Unloved by their distant mother, Isabel and Nina cemented their bond in childhood when tragedy struck the family. Many yeas later, with the difficult birth of Isabel's first child, it is Nina who comes to stay and help out her older sister. But Nina has other, important reasons for being under her sister's roof - not least of these is Isabel's husband, Richard.

The tragedy that drew two sisters together so many years ago still has the power to wrench them apart . . .

'A writer of quiet deadly power . . . it takes two paragraphs to hook you. Don't resist' Time Out

'Dunmore's capacity for hauntingly psychological storytelling is on brilliant display' Sunday Times

'Flies off the page, startling the reader with its brilliance' Financial Times
