Publisher's Summary

Twenty-one years ago, Dr Richard Carter and his wife Pamela were killed in what has become the most infamous double murder of the modern age.

Their 1 0year-old daughter – nicknamed the Angel of Death – spent eight years in a children’s secure unit and is living quietly under an assumed name with a family of her own.

Now, on the anniversary of the trial, a documentary team has tracked down her older sister, compelling her to break two decades of silence.

Her explosive interview sparks national headlines and journalist Brinley Booth, a childhood friend of the Carter sisters, is tasked with covering the news story.

For the first time, the three women are forced to confront what really happened that night – with devastating consequences for them all.
When I Was Ten is the highly anticipated, stay-up-all-night next book by acclaimed crime author Fiona Cummins.

Pure Brilliance

An absolutely amazing ‘read’. The story is gripping, twisting and emotive. The narration is pleasant without being overly produced and really captures the tone of the story. Would highly recommend.

Gripping! From beginning to end!

I don’t normally write reviews for Audible books, but I really enjoyed this! It was very tense, very interesting and a really good story.
