Taken from Goodreads: Kat, Flora and Lauren are half-sisters who share a famous artist father - and a terrible secret.
Each has found their way of burying it. Over the years they've grown apart, and into wildly different lives. But an invitation to Rock Point, the Cornish cliff house where they once sat for their father's most celebrated painting, Girls with Birdcage, reunites them.
Rock Point is a beautiful, windswept place, thick with secrets, electrically charged with the one subject the family dare not discuss. And there is someone in the shadows watching the house, their every move. Someone who remembers the girls in the painting. What they did.
The sisters must unlock the truth to set themselves free - and find each other again.

Meet Eve Chase (Taken from her website): I write from a studio/shed in my townhouse garden in Oxford. A small space, it's perfect for cooking up bigger ones. I love to write about sprawling, dysfunctional families in curious, characterful settings. A crime usually beats at the heart of my books. As I love stories that envelope you in their world but also read at a page-turning pace, I try to write them too.
Married with three children. Owner of a very hairy golden retriever called Harry.
Studied English Literature at Manchester University and went on to do a post-grad in journalism. I once edited a street fashion magazine, Scene (no longer on the scene, or in existence) and wrote for many publications including Dazed and Confused, Punch, InStyle, Red, Marie-Claire, You and national newspapers.
I read all the time, happily hopping between authors and genres. My ever changing list of favourite authors include Maggie O'Farrell, Liane Moriarty, Kate Atkinson, Elizabeth Strout, Diane Athill, Donna Tartt, Lisa Jewell, Raymond Carver, Jane Austen, Kate Morton, Hilary Mantel, and Barbara Vine.
I love hearing from readers. You really make all the hours writing away on my own
