A debut psychological thriller about a young woman who finds her sister brutally murdered, and the shocking incident in their past that may hold the key to finding the killer

When Nora takes the train from London to visit her sister in the countryside, she expects to find her waiting at the station or at home cooking dinner. But when she walks into Rachel’s familiar house, what she finds is entirely different: her sister has been the victim of a brutal murder.

Stunned and adrift, Nora can’t return to her former life. An unsolved assault in the past has shaken her faith in the police, and she can’t trust them to find her sister’s killer. Haunted by the murder and the secrets she unravels, she is under the harrow—distressed and in danger. As Nora’s fear turns to obsession, she becomes as unrecognizable as the sister her investigation uncovers.

A riveting psychological thriller and a haunting exploration of the fierce love between two sisters, the distortions of grief, and the terrifying power of the past, Under the Harrow marks the debut of an extraordinary new writer.

  • “Obsession and memory, rage and regret, power this atmospheric psychological suspense debut.”

    Library Journal

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Berry accomplishes the rare feat of making the victim come alive on the page without ever sacrificing the deep, all-encompassing loss felt by those left behind.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A moody psychological thriller that explores sisterhood’s complex mix of love and resentment.”


  • “Fiona Hardingham’s appealing British accent proves the perfect vehicle for this fast-paced psychological thriller. Her subtle shadings of tone and cadence allow for effortless character differentiation and highlight the author’s talent for dialogue. Hardingham grabs the listener from the first sentence of this tightly written mystery…Berry’s skillful writing charges every word of the story with action and drama; Hardingham’s equally skillful narration delivers every satisfying bit”

Her pacing was spot on for this psychological thriller, and she delivered just the right amount of tension in her voice when needed.”
