Publisher's Summary

The top 10 best seller!

How do you know if your friends actually like you?

Four friends, five letters, one big secret.

Joni, Deb, Eden, and Trina try to catch up once a year for a girls' getaway. Careers, husbands, and babies have pulled these old high school friends in different directions, and the closeness they once enjoyed is increasingly elusive. This year, in a bid to revive their intimacy, they each share a secret in an anonymous letter. But the revelations are unnerving. Then a fifth letter is discovered, venting long-held grudges and murderous thoughts. But who was the author? And which of the friends should be worried?

The Fifth Letter is a searing examination of the bonds of women's friendship groups, the loyalty and honesty they demand, and the pain of ending relationships that once seemed essential but might be outgrown.

Critic Reviews

"[A] pacey, circle-of-friends thriller, which accelerates in its intensity and sheer originality with every page." (Australian Women's Weekly)

An Easy Read

An easy read, but a little too 'high school' for my liking. I couldn't really fall in love with any of the characters. Still enjoyable though.

A bit of a let down

None of the characters were three-dimensional enough to get to know them properly. Up until the end I still didn't know who anyone was and got everyone confused. Also their seemed to be a lot of hurt and emotion amongst the friends but it was just all miraculously solved and everyone was forgiven. Also the dialogue tags were distracting and took away from the story. I loved the premise of the story and the thought of a fifth letter and the contents being somewhat dark, was brilliant. I just wish it was written better.
