Publication day for The Promise by Teresa Driscoll

It’s publication day for No. 1 international bestselling author, Teresa Driscoll.

Teresa’s third psychological thriller, The Promise is released today by Amazon / Thomas & Mercer.

The novel has already been heralded as a “must-read” by Heat Magazine and has been featured on the front cover of the Bookseller Buyer’s Guide for Fiction.

Teresa has had a hugely successful year already. Both of her previous two novels, I Am Watching You and The Friend have have been in the charts as No. 1 Kindle Bestsellers, and it was recently announced that I Am Watching You has hit over 639,000 readers  – an incredible achievement.

The Promise is a book that continues this huge success in psychological thrillers, following the lives of three schoolgirls with something to hide…

It was their darkest secret. Three schoolgirls made a promise – to take the horrible truth of what they did to the grave.

Thirty years later, Beth and Sally have tried to put the trauma behind them. Though Carol has distanced herself from her former friends, the three are adamant that the truth must never come to light, even if the memory still haunts them.

But when some shocking news threatens to unearth their dark secret, Beth enlists the help of private investigator Matthew Hill to help her and Sally reconnect with estranged Carol ­– before the terrible act they committed as teenagers is revealed.

Beth wishes she could take back the vow they made. But somebody is watching and will stop at nothing to ensure the secret stays buried.

Now, with her beloved family in peril, can Beth still keep the promise?
