About the book

'A wonderfully warm and involving page-turner.' Clare Chambers, Sunday Times bestselling author of Small Pleasures

'A life-affirming novel, full of surprises. It's a gripping literary whodunnit and so much more . . . I adored it.' Emma Stonex, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Lamplighters

'Full of unforgettable characters, a beguiling mystery with gorgeous prose, The Night in Question completely captured my heart . . . A triumph.’ Jennie Godfrey, author of The List of Suspicious Things

-------

Florence Butterfield has lived an extraordinary life full of travel, passion and adventure. But, at eighty-seven, she suspects there are no more surprises to come her way.

Then, one midsummer's night, something terrible happens - so strange and unexpected that Florrie is suspicious. Was this really an accident, or is she living alongside a would-be murderer?

The only clue is a magenta envelope, discarded earlier that day.

And Florrie - cheerfully independent but often overlooked - is the only person determined to uncover the truth.

As she does, Florrie finds herself looking back on her own life . . . and a long-buried secret, traced in faded scars across her knuckles, becomes ever harder to ignore.

Readers of Elizabeth is Missing, Small Pleasures or Dear Mrs Bird will love prize-winning author Susan Fletcher's The Night in Question - an absorbing and uplifting novel with a uniquely loveable protagonist at its heart.

'[Fletcher's] prose is extraordinarily lyrical . . . and her themes are profound.' 
Sunday Times
'A gifted storyteller' 
Independent
'Fletcher unpeels with delicacy and insight the complex layers of the human heart.' 
Guardian
