?Kind, cruel, kind of cruel.” Amber thinks it's just nonsense, a side effect of being hypnotized for the first time. But when she's arrested for a brutal murder two hours later, those four words are the key to clearing her name? if only she could remember where she'd seen them. Amber Hewerdine suffers from chronic insomnia. As a last resort, she visits a hypnotherapist, doubtful that anything will really change. Under hypnosis, Amber hears herself saying, ?Kind, cruel, kind of cruel.” The words awaken a vague memory, but she dismisses the whole episode as nonsense. Two hours later, however, Amber is arrested for the brutal murder of a woman she's never heard of, and the only way she can clear her name is by remembering exactly where she's seen those words.

Kind of Cruel
is the latest page-turner in Hannah's Zailer and Waterhouse mystery series, and will enthrall Hannah's ever-growing readership.
