A twisty and gripping psychological thriller that keeps you guessing. THE AMERICAN'S COUSIN combines wit and suspense, in a dark and unsettling first case for investigator Edie Fox - one that blurs the professional and the personal with terrifying results.
The American's cousin is missing ... or is she?
Edie Fox is a Private Investigator. Or at least that's what she aspires to be. From her cramped office above a shop on the wrong side of town, she just about manages to stay afloat with the odd job spying on cheating spouses.
This all changes when a wealthy young American, desperate to find his missing cousin, hires Edie to track her down.
But things are not as they seem. People are telling lies, lots of them.
Edie needs to work out why, but time is running short. As she gets swept up in the hunt for the American's cousin, she realises that she's out of her depth. And as personal and professional boundaries blur, she fears she could lose everything: her business, her family ... her life.
