Publisher Description

'A genuine page-turner and ideal holiday read. It leaves you unsettled and enthralled in equal measure' DAILY EXPRESS

Everyone has an idea of what their perfect life is. For Agatha, it's Meghan Shaughnessy's.

These two women from vastly different backgrounds have one thing in common - a dangerous secret that could destroy everything they hold dear.

Both will risk everything to hide the truth, but their worlds are about to collide in a shocking act that cannot be undone.

The compelling standalone psychological thriller that will break your heart into tiny pieces, from world-renowned author MICHAEL ROBOTHAM.

'Two terrific female characters, both with secrets. Add Michael Robotham's clean prose and whipcrack pacing. The result? A book you won't be able to put down, although you may occasionally want to hide your eyes' STEPHEN KING

'Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them' Linwood Barclay

'Superbly exciting . . . a terrific read' Guardian

Had me hooked

Great read

Not what you expect

What a refreshing change. I was expecting another murder mystery solved by a tired and less-than-perfect detective. This book is about anything but that. It's about selfish people who have children and turn them into mental cripples. I wanted to murder Agatha's mother!

Great read.

Tragic but enthralling

Thank you for writing such a captivating and compelling story; I loved it. I could feel thei emotions in every paragraph. The ending was not a surprise although not quite what I expected.
