‘A rich, intricately-woven novel of childhood crime and adult redemption. I finished it with my heart in my mouth. Highly recommended’ - Louise Candlish ‘Dark, creepy and ultimately compassionate, When I Was Ten is a chilling look at the consequences of a childhood gone wrong’ – JP Delaney 'Pacey, dark and surprises to the bitter end. Loved it' – Fiona Barton Twenty-one years ago, Dr Richard Carter and his wife Pamela were murdered in what has become the most infamous double murder of the modern age. Ten-year-old Sara Carter – nicknamed the Angel of Death - spent eight years in a children’s secure unit and is living quietly under an assumed name with a family of her own. Now, on the anniversary of the trial, a documentary team has tracked down her older sister Shannon Carter, compelling her to break two decades of silence. Her explosive interview sparks national headlines and journalist Brinley Booth, a childhood friend of the Carter sisters, is tasked with covering the news story. For the first time, the three women are forced to confront what really happened on that blood-soaked night – with devastating consequences for them all. When I Was Ten is a chilling page-turner by Fiona Cummins. Praise for Fiona Cummins: ‘Head and shoulders above most of the competition’ – Val McDermid ‘When writing from the perspective of ordinary people caught up in horrific events, Fiona Cummins is unbeatable’ – Sunday Express ‘Brilliant . . . dark, creepy and twisted’ – C. J. Tudor ‘A crime novel of the very first order’ – David Baldacci ‘An excellent read’ – Martina Cole ‘Creepy as hell’ – Ian Rankin ‘Fiona Cummins has a gift for tapping a rich seam of evil that underpins the surface of the every day. Suberbly sinister’ – Sunday Mirror
