About Last Night

The latest novel by Leicester graduate Adele Parkes

How far would you go for your best friend?

For thirty years, best friends Steph and Pip have been through thick and thin. Selfless and trusting; there’s nothing they would not do for one another. Until a few simple words change everything.

‘I need you to say that I was with you.’

Steph, eternally solid and dependable, is begging her friend to lie to the police as she’s desperately trying to conceal not one but two scandalous secrets to protect her family. Pip, self-consigned to the role of scatty hot-head, is overwhelmed; she’s normally the one asking for help in a crisis.

Steph’s perfect life will be torn apart unless Pip agrees to this lie. But telling the truth will jeopardise everything Pip’s recently achieved after years of struggle. It’s a big ask.

So what would you do?
