"When the artist Marianne Glass falls to her death, everyone insists it was a tragic accident. Yet Rowan Winter, once her closest friend, suspects there is more to the story. Ever since she was young, Marianne had paralyzing vertigo. She would never have gone so close to the roof's edge. Marianne -- and the whole Glass family -- once meant everything to Rowan. For a teenage girl, motherless with a much-absent father, this lively, intellectual household represented a world of glamour and opportunity. But since their estrangement, Rowan knows only what the papers reported about Marianne's life: her swift ascent in the London art world, her much-scrutinized romance with her gallerist. If she wants to discover the truth about her death, Rowan needs to know more. Was Marianne in distress? In danger? And so she begins to seek clues -- in Marianne's latest work, her closest relationships, and her new friendship with an iconoclastic fellow artist. But the deeper Rowan goes, the more sinister everything seems. And a secret in the past only she knows makes her worry about her own fate . . ."--Goodreads.com

Very well done.Thoroughly unpleasant. The Publishers Weekly said 'nailbiting'. Lucie Whitehouse is a young British author who now lives in USA. If you 'enjoy' Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins,you can't go wrong with" Keep You Close".Bed time reading it isn't, not if you want a good night's sleep. Better by far in daylight and warm; somewhere where one can see who is coming and going.

As teenagers, Rowan Winter and Marianne Glass were best friends, but a terrible argument led to a complete estrangement. When Rowan hears that Marianne has died from a fall from her rooftop, she knows in her bones that the death could not have been accidental -- Marianne's vertigo meant she never would have gone near the edge. Determining whether it was suicide or murder forces Rowan to face her past -- and all she didn't know about Marianne. "Nail-biting," says Publishers Weekly.
