A suspenseful debut that twists Big Little Lies with Practical Magic in a dark mystery of four women, a wicked secret—and an investigation that shakes their Connecticut town to the core.

Sanctuary is the perfect town . . . to hide a secret.

When young Daniel Whitman is killed at a high-school party, the community is ripped apart. The death of Sanctuary’s star quarterback seems to be a tragic accident, but everyone knows his ex-girlfriend Harper Fenn is the daughter of a witch—and she was there when he died.

VV James weaves a spellbinding tale of a town cracking into pieces and the devastating power of a mother’s love. Was Daniel’s death an accident, revenge—or something even more sinister?

As accusations fly, paranoia grips the town, culminating in a witch-hunt...and the town becomes no sanctuary at all.

"[A] riveting mystery... Assured prose and a tight plot lift this tale of mass hysteria." — Publishers Weekly
"The story ratchets through its many red herrings and misdirections before reaching an explosive conclusion...a solid, complex, and entertaining novel. Fans of Liane Moriarty and Charlaine Harris will enjoy the otherworldly intrigue." — Booklist

"What would you get if you crossed Big Little Lies with 90s teen flick The Craft and threw in a splash of Peyton Place and a dash of The Crucible? The answer is something like this addictive novel, which is set in a world in which witches are uneasily tolerated. Then a teen party ends in death, bringing echoes of Salem to town. " — Independent
