“Let's say you've been convicted of murder and sent to a maximum security prison for the remainder of your life, which should be a while since you are not that old. Then let's say that not only can you not remember killing anyone, but you can't remember who you are. Could things get any worse? How about if the ghost of the little boy you supposedly killed visits you in prison to ask for your help. What do you do? From the author of The Girl With All the Gifts comes another gripping and unforgettable story.”

The unmissable and highly original new thriller from the author of the international phenomenon The Girl with All the Gifts.
Jess Moulson is convicted of a murder she can't remember committing.
Nothing is quite clear from the drug-fuelled night when a blaze set in her apartment killed the little boy upstairs. But when the media brands Jess a child killer, she starts to believe it herself.
Now she's on her way to Fellside, the biggest, most formidable women's prison in Europe, standing in the bleak Yorkshire moors.
But Jess won't be alone in her prison cell. Lurking in the shadows is an unexpected visitor ... the ghost of the ten-year-old boy she killed. He says he needs her help-and he won't take no for an answer.
Fellside is a powerful, thought-provoking and heart-wrenching new standalone novel by M. R. Carey.
