THREE WOMEN. ONE BODY. WILL THEY EVER LEARN?

**The jaw-dropping new thriller from Sunday Times and Kindle #1 bestseller Harriet Tyce**

'Left me breathless.' Lucy Clarke

Anna wants a fresh start. She doesn't believe she deserves it, but after three years behind bars she has finally paid her dues. Most of them, anyway.

Lucy craves the attention of the only man she can't have, her alluring Oxford professor. He's married - not for the first time. Maybe she should be next in line?

Marie the recluse has been locked up for too long. She's not ready to be free, but some rules are meant to be broken.

Everyone wants a perfect life. But not everyone is prepared to take it.

Unless someone decides to teach them a lesson.
