A debut psychological thriller about a young woman who finds her sister brutally murdered and the shocking incident in their past that may hold the key to finding the killer.
When Nora takes the train from London to visit her sister in the countryside, she expects to find her waiting at the station or at home cooking dinner. But when she walks into Rachel's familiar house, what she finds is entirely different: Her sister has been the victim of a brutal murder.
Stunned and adrift, Nora can't return to her former life. An unsolved assault in the past has shaken her faith in the police, and she can't trust them to find her sister's killer. Haunted by the murder and the secrets she unravels, she is under the harrow - distressed and in danger. As Nora's fear turns to obsession, she becomes as unrecognizable as the sister her investigation uncovers.
A riveting psychological thriller and a haunting exploration of the fierce love between two sisters, the distortions of grief, and the terrifying power of the past, Under the Harrow marks the debut of an extraordinary new writer.

"[Narrator] Fiona Hardingham's appealing British accent proves the perfect vehicle for this fast-paced psychological thriller.... Berry's skillful writing charges every word of the story with action and drama; Hardingham's equally skillful narration delivers every satisfying bit." (AudioFile)
I got this book because of the reviews. I was bored out of my mind. Yes, the book has a good twist to it, but the whole books is just so drawn out. I was confused with all the characters and couldn't keep track of everyone. I am just so happy it's over.
No, I still like mysteries.
The gradual deterioration of Nora, so well depicted.
Yes, it did.
Her shifting moods.
A great reader!.
The story really dragged, and never picked up. The twist at the end wasn't exciting and didn't give me any pay off. And I'm not really a tough critic. This is my second least favorite book I've read all year, after Shattered, which was awful.
Loved the character development and the beautiful descriptive language. The plot twist was foreshadowed, but still unexpected. I'd recommend as a good summer listen.
I started reading this book a while ago and it started off really interesting. When I purchased it from audible.com and finished listening to the story I was a bit disappointed in the way it would bounce back from teenage memories to the current happenings...confusing really.
Storyline was ok, nothing really spectacular
I purchase this story because it was continuously compared to Gone Girl. though the story has some twists is just not as interesting as the Gillian Flynn books. It wasn't bad, it was just ok
