The Woman On The Ledge
You're arrested for her murder.
You tell the police that you only met the victim the previous night at your office party. She was threatening to jump from the roof, but you talked her down.
You've got nothing to do with tragedy.
You're clearly being framed.
So why do the police keep picking holes in your story? Even your lawyer doesn't seem to believe you.
It soon becomes obvious that you're keeping secrets.
But who are you trying to protect? And why?
Just the best kind of plot-twisty structure where the writing itself becomes part of the intrigue.
Razor sharp plotting, great writing and the author's lengthy career as a solicitor makes this a pitch-perfect legal thriller. Highly recommended.
THE WOMAN ON THE LEDGE blew me away like THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN blew me away nearly ten years ago. compulsive, clever and gasp out loud twisty, I absolutely loved it.
Wonderfully twisty, fabulously unexpected and immensely satisfying.
Page-turner doesn't cover it!
Breath-taking storytelling. Every time you think you know what's happening you realise you're wrong. Stunning.
An original, unputdownable thriller with ingenious twists, beautiful writing and intricate plotting. Totally unpredictable. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Loved everything about it. Superb.
THE WOMAN ON THE LEDGE by Ruth Mancini is the kind of book that would really benefit from being read in one breathless sitting, ideally on a sunbed, but because of life being a bit ridiculous at times, I read it in about eight-five short sections and it was still the best thriller I’ve read for ages…The best books are the ones you don’t want to put down but equally don’t want to end, and this was definitely one of those. I take my hat off to the author, whilst also asking ‘when is the next one coming, please?
A gripping thriller with a great premise and a twist I didn’t see coming.
A twist-a-minute thrill ride!

WOW! I absolutely loved it – THE WOMAN ON THE LEDGE is phenomenal. It’s so perfectly constructed. I really thought I had a grasp on things, but then Ruth totally pulled the rug out from under me.
