When sisters Celine and Pip get a call telling them their reclusive mother has died, the women are reunited at her riverside home in Arundel to pick up the pieces. But someone is missing – their middle sister, Vanessa, brutally murdered years ago and the victim of an unsolved case. As the sisters confront ghosts from the past, the discovery of another body in similar circumstances throws new light on Vanessa’s death. Could there be more to her case than the police first thought? And what do the mysterious residents of Two Cross Farm, the neighbouring women’s commune, have to do with it? What secrets are lurking behind their locked gates? And what is the significance of the number 33?

Amazon Bestseller Isabel Ashdown is back in a twisty new thriller where nothing is quite what it seems…


33 Women is an atmospheric, captivating invitation into a dark world. I loved the persistent, suffocating beat of menace that simmered behind each sentence. Highly recommended!
Robin Morgan Bentley, author of THE WRECKAGE
Although I hate the word 'unputdownable', it's the only way to describe this tour de force from Isabel Ashdown. A long-dead sister, a secretive community of women, a family reunited by a death... the perfect ingredients for a tale that skilfully weaves past secrets and current crimes into a shocking denouement.
Alison Belsham, author of THE EMBALMER
An unexpectedly timely novel about searching for your true self in an isolated world. With that rare thing, a twist I genuinely never saw coming.
Araminta Hall, author of IMPERFECT WOMEN
Ashdown skilfully incorporates big moral questions into a thoroughly compelling thriller.
